Here are a clutch of clocks that I have made, right down to designing the clock faces. The movements are quartz battery-driven pendulum types with a speaker and chimes. Wood is quarter-sawn oak “fat veneer” bookmatched over less figured QS white oak. Stain on the two clocks are various combinations of M.C. Campbell Microtone spray NGR dye, with Campbell MagnaLac gloss clear coat. The featured clock has walnut purfling along the face edges, and spectacular wavy walnut side panels. Both clocks have frame and panel backs that capture the side panels in a rabbet. They are held together with countersunk rare earth magnets, to allow for easy setting and battery changes. I’ve posted other designs here:
