Marc (The Woodwhisperer.. do I need to say that?) posted this clock just in time for my Dads 59th birthday. Thanks for the idea Marc and just in time. Luckily this really was as easy as he made it look. As a newb this is the first project I’ve done that turned out without me having to settle much on the final quality. It actually came out as I had planed so I’m pretty happy about that.
Changes to mine from Marc’s
I only used one miter spline per corner. The hole for the clock does not go all the way through. The wood for the center is a little thicker and larger on mine. Oh and obviously I used the same wood for the center as the frame.
It occurs to me that since I didn’t cut all the way through for the clock I could orient it so that the dowels are vertical instead of horizontal and put some kind of plaque on the back.
This is all Walnut and the dowels are Oak. Tung oil and Mineral spirits are the only finish. The color is much more even than it appears in the pictures.
