A large project, ongoing, is lining two walls of the living room with bookcases from floor to ceiling. When It comes to the corner the plan is to have a lower cabinet for storage and the top cab, reaching to the ceiling is to be a clock.
This part, 47” high, is complete in itself, but will be installed in a larger casework.
The clock case has a hinged glass door for access to the clock hands. The clockwork is installed on a hinged panel and a separate glass door is hinged for access to the pendulum case.
When the outer corner casework is finished this entire clock casement will swing on a pivot to allow access to the space in the corner behind the clock, where there will be electrical boxes and computer connections. The next cabinet to be built, next to this array will be the desk which will have the computer keyboard, mouse and display.
The clockwork is electronic and the pendulum does swing, although it doesn’t actually regulate the time.
