I finally got around to making the shaker wall clock like Norm Abrams did on the New Yankee Workshop many years ago. Please view my video here:

Chris, thanks for taking time to video your build. I’m planning to build a few for Christmas and your video is a great encouragement. I have the book too, and your video is a good bonus.

Can you share your source for the clock works and face template?

Thanks again!

Hello Randy! Thanks for the kind comment! I actually found the clock face at woodcraft.com . I got the movement from klockit.com . (Included the hands) I wanted the same clock face as Norms, you could probably go with others and it would look great as well. The video is always challenging as to what you need to cut out. I had to cut some as it still turned out 16 minutes which is actually long for a video. I made the shaker knobs on my lathe for example. I made the top and bottom pieces like norm did. By the way if you did not notice I linked another you tube video in my video notes to the Original New Yankee Workshop of Norm building it.

Nice job. I agree with you, I think the inside of the door looks better than the outside. Lol

Have your say...
