Another batch of clocks for sale on Etsy (16 this time around). All are QSWO, with various color finishes. Finish on all is dye stain, sealer, darker gel stain (for the pores), and 2 coats of hand wiped urethane. I really like the way the black came out. I made 2 sizes: The smaller (blockier looking clocks in pics) is 7” tall, 8” wide, 3.6” deep, and incorporates a 4” square dial. The larger is 10” tall, 11.5” wide, 4.6” deep, and incorporates a 6” square dial. M&T construction, but I had to get a bit creative on the sides to accommodate the dial. Instead of a mortise on the sides, I routed a slot from the top of the side down to the bottom of the lower rail. It acts as the mortises for the rails, as well as a recess to hold the dial.
Dials are all etched & infill painted by myself. If you poke around at my previous clocks, you’ll find info about the process I use. I use, copper, brass, and nickel silver that I either heat treat or chemically patinate.
