In 2019, I started utilizing some of the Elm lumber that is not able to be used to bend. When the lumber has knots, complex grain, or other complexities, I am unable to use it to bend into my shaker style boxes. I tried making some clocks with this wood and have been amazed by the way each piece is able to tell a story about the tree. These clocks will only be available for purchase at The Gallery Shop in Lemont.
