Here are some clocks I made for our kids for Christmas this past year. I didn’t have enough cherry to go around so I had to make two clocks from some ash I had laying around. It didn’t take much time to do these however, I’m glad I got these done when I did. I went into the hospital shortly after completing these clocks and since, I’ve been recuperating. I’m hoping I can go back to the shop soon. I have other projects started but can’t get to them yet.

Very nice. I’m wanting to build a floor clock/lamp/bookcase combo of similar style.

Get well soon. Not good to be a sick woodworker. Great looking clocks and sure they were appreciated for your fine craftsmanship building them.

I was thinking like redryder… NINE kids??? Took you guys a while to figure out what was causing that, eh? :-)

Nice clocks!

Very nice! I’m a huge fan of the heavy bottom, A&C look.

Hey Artsy – It looks like you had a lot of time on your hands! (sorry, couldn’t resist) Nice design and work. I would be curious as to where you got the guts for the clocks. Thanks for the project.

Thanks everyone for looking at my clocks and the nice comments. It made my day! Just for the record, we only had 7 kids. LOL. I made extras for friends. The clocks came out of Wood Magazine and the movement is battery operated and I purchase them from Klockit. The clocks are supposed to be Oak, but in this case materials dictate the end. I get my ideas mainly from items I’ve seen someplace. I’ll take pictures of the item then go home and make it. I’m fortunate that I live in the Amish country in northern Michigan. Now those people can make some beautiful furniture. I take pictures of their projects and they share information with me on occasion. And, I have 4 lumber mills within a 10 mile radius of my home, which makes materials very cost effective.
