Elliptical clock prototype

In addition to making tracks on some instruments, I've also been able to prototype the first elliptical clock. The face is bookmatched black walnut, the main hour markers are purpleheart, and the off hours are birdseye maple.

I've got a black clock movement for it, but I'm not sure if I want to go with that or if I want to throw a maple veneer on them to make them really pop against the clock face.
