I have always had an interest in clocks and as such, I will be building a variety of different types. This is a variation of one that I have admired in the past. The size is approximately 15 ½” T x 12”W x 6” D. I first designed this one using Sketchup, as I find this assists in eliminating a few mistakes along the way. Since this is a prototype, I chose to use poplar and some walnut that I had on hand. I will be rebuilding this again in the near future utilizing a better grade of wood and eliminating some minor flaws and irritants that we discovered along the way. The glass covering the pendulum has been etched, but does not show up in the photos as well as I had hoped. The finish is multiple coats of wipe on poly. My wife takes an active interest in this endeavor and as such, I cannot take credit for the finished product as she etched the glass and applied the finish and the overall supervision.
