We all remember our days in high school, even middle school when we had to take woodshop class. Well a good friend of mine had made this clock when he was in school first thing he ever made of wood, he gave it to his mother and she hung it in the kitchen for years. My friends mother passed away recently and he wanted to have his clock back that he had made. Thats when he gave me a call to see if I could re-build his clock into something better, he had mentioned a mantel clock so I did some searching and came up with this design. The clock was mahogany and I threw in some walnut and red oak. By no means was the clock square by any means but I managed to make some cove molding to go around the clock, made a couple fancy tri-angle thingies to put on each side of the clock to fancy it up and 3 coats of lacquer. Best thing was it brought tears to my buddies eyes ( from the memories ) when he seen it finished. Now it has a new look and a new home. With a big smile on his face he mentioned this is something my kids can inherit.
I LOVE WORKING WITH WOOD.
