On my first clock of this design style, I used red oak for the frame, and a blue-white Kokomo glass.

On this 2nd clock of this design, I made a red padauk frame. I chose a red-white Kokomo glass.

This red-white Kokomo glass really goes well with the red padauk frame.

I am not a professional photographer, so my pictures do not do this clock justice. It really turned out to be a beautiful clock. My wife even agrees it is a very pretty clock :)

It can be used as a mantle or wall-mount clock.

To see the trials & tribulations I had making this clock, see my web site.

In my design, the bottom piece needs to be removable. I expand the U-shape slightly while I slide the glass into the top section with the top curve. Once the glass is in place on the top piece, I need to attach the bottom piece.

I went to Ace hardware looking for hardware that would attach the bottom piece, and have screws less than 1/2” long, so screws would not go through the 1/2” wall thickness of the frame. Small hinges fit the bill ok, so I decided to use hinges as corner braces.

thanks!
