I made this clock for my son’s restaurant. He has an old theme interior for his restaurant. I saw a similar clock on-line and decided to make this one from sight. It’s a cross between an Art’s and Crafts and a Green and Green. It’s made of Ash with a Golden Oak Stain and 4 coats of Lacquer. The Alaron clock face is metal and was given to me by a friend. The clock works are from Klockit and is Battery operated. Since the clock is going in the restaurant, I didn’t see the need to make it mechanical. The dimensions of the clock are 18 1/2” tall, 14” wide and 5 1/2” deep. The comers of the door are Half-Lap joints and the bottom corbels were attached by Biscuit Joints as well as the clock frame. I began this project in the early fall of last year and was going to give it to him at Thanksgiving. However, I went into the hospital soon after I started it and was not able to finish it until now. I think it turned out pretty good for not having plans. Thanks for looking.
