One day while out in my shop, I was thinking about what I should make next..
I happened to look up, & spotted a pendulum clock works package sitting on a shelf gathering dust.
I had purchased it quite some time ago.
I sat down, & drew out the dimensions for the face frame, & started cutting out parts for it.
I used an ogee raised panel bit on the face frame. It really enhanced the beautiful grain figure of the Black Ash.
I don’t know why they call it Black Ash, because the wood is so light colored.
In my estimation, Walnut, & Black Ash, seem to be an excellent partnership.
I’ve made some other projects with this combination, with very satisfying results.
”IT’S ALMOST AS GOOD AS OREO COOKIES. AND MILK”
Next I cut, & assembled the parts for the top & side panels.
Then I proceeded to make the crown mouldings for the top & bottom.
The finish is Satin Lacquer.
The overall dimensions are: 5” X 16” X 26”. The clock face is 8” X 8”.
This a loving substitute for a request by Barb, who wanted a Grandmothers clock.
She loves it, & thinks this one is fantastic, but she may still get her wish in the days to come.
”I THINK IT TURNED OUT PRETTY NICE, JUST BY CUTTING, AND GLUING PIECES TOGETHER
UNTIL IT TURNED INTO THIS BEAUTIFUL CLOCK”.
It’s now proudly hanging on our living room wall.
This happens to be another project that came from a re-sawn Black Walnut railroad tie.
