This was supposed to be a Shaker-style clock when I started, but I got a bit away from the design just for the fun of playing. The case is dovetailed together and I decided to use a cove profile on the molding.
Wood is QS white oak and the finish, which I’m really tickled with and wish the pictures showed more clearly, is aniline dye in alcohol follwed by a coat of boiled linseed oil. I let the oil cure for a week and followed up with three coats of satin poly. The combination of the BLO and poly really made the grain, the rays, etc. pop. It has an almost 3-D effect.
