Default Elephant Clock

My wife wanted a special gift for a co-worker that loves elephants.
Sue Mey had this pattern (it took all of about 10 minutes to order and print out the pattern)
I modified it by adding the legs and a base, had the clock movment.
The clock is oak and the base might be Ipea or mahogany.

G'day Rolf,
Very nice. I don't usually go much on the clocks for the sake of clocks as there are so many in houses these days, but that one I LIKE.
