I had started this project many months ago and never got around to complete it. Decided to clean the workshop one day and picked up where I left off. I debated back and forth on the bottom door whether to do glass and a pendulum vs. a solid door….and in the end I’m glad I went with the pendulum. I really liked how the cherry looked and used a Tried and True finish for the first time. I used 4 very light coats and loved the results.

Beautiful clock, Shaker style is timeless, and the cherry will become more beautiful with age.

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? Thank you for your kind words and I have to ask where did you get your clock face? I was forced to print one on parchment / Linen paper and then double it up to provide depth. I secured it to the backing and then coated it with laquer to seal it. My fear is that it might wrinkle or come loose sometime in the future.

Your clock is a fine piece!

Keep the faith

Hi Chris, I believe I bought the clock face from klockit….I didn’t trust myself with a paper one so I went with metal instead.

Thanks, Tom
