Project Description:
This project was a gift to my wife, who LOVES elephants. The inspiration came from wanting to combine an African theme (to tie in with the elephants) with the skeleton movement I used. The end result also incorporates some Greek styling as well.
Lots of mortise and tenon joints were used and the base was married to the clock platform with screws so the movement could be replaced if needed.
