Always wanted to replace the purely average clock on our fireplace mantle. Mechanical movement (8-day windup) is from Klockit. The case design and plans are my own (for better or for worse). Case is solid cherry with lacewood and curly maple inlays. Finish is boiled linseed oil followed by 4 or 5 coats of Formsby’s oil/varnish and a coat of wax. I don’t recommend climb cuts on a router table with small parts (like say, the door to a clock case) – I spent about a week repairing the damage caused by me losing control during one of those cuts.
