This is number eight. We have one more partially cut out. It is made from cherry and finished with Sutherland Wells, LTD Interior Polymerized Medium Lustre Tung Oil. Yes it is Lustre on the can.
The clock dial was copied from the internet and is printed on resume paper. It has a mechanical movement from KloKit.
The wall hook which is hard to see is from Nathan’s Forge. It comes with a forged wood screw.
The knobs are from “Nice Knobs.”
My wife is the main “Doer.” as she has more ability to fit and fiddle to finesse the details than I do.
We started making one as a wedding gift. The it was one for the kids and….well you know the story.
This one is for our youngest son who is 40.
The next one is for my longtime Physician fiend. He knows nothing about it.
These have taken about two years to do. Doing the same thing over and over get difficult and forcing oneself into the shop to get another step done takes it’s toll.
The plans were from Norm’s Shaker book. The joinery was too hard for us to understand but the outcome is the same.
If anyone wants a clock face copy PM me.
PS It still looks crooked in the picture. I Photoshopped too.
