A friend of mine from work asked me to make him a clock, after seeing some of the clocks I’ve made. I sent him some links so he could give me ideas on what he liked, and he chose this one from Klockit’s web site. I ordered the movement and tried to reproduce the look, based on the photo.
The wood is Honduran Mahogany, finish is pure tung oil. The front and sides are clear acrylic, and the back is acrylic mirror. To help stabilize the columns, I drilled 1/4” deep recesses in the top and bottom, using a forstner bit. The top of the columns have a screw embedded in them which the brass knobs on top thread onto. The bottom of the columns are anchored by wood screws inserted through the bottom of the clock. The feet have levelers installed. These came with the clock movement.
