Nice clock. This is very reminiscent of some Mission designs I have seen. Great work.

Very nice looking clock. Cool that it came from a railroad car. How did you make the sides? I love the way it seems to curve smaller toward the top.

Wow all this from a piece of dunnage? Great eye for a wood find.
Nicely executed clock case, I like the style.

Great looking mantel clock! I like the front door, with the pendulum behind it.
