this black walnut clock is the latest project I have finished, it is a wall clock, 27” tall by 11.5” at the widest point, I found that a french cleat is the best way to hang them, easier to level the cleat on the wall then hang the clock. I use a battery run quartz clock, rather than a mechanical clock. I build these for my nieces and nephews when they get married, I only have one more to build, until the next generation comes along.

What a great clock and a wonderful gift. It will be handed down through the generations I am sure.

I love the design with the small knick knack shelves : ) Great job !

Have you tried snapping some pictures of your project outside ? Shop lighting is the pits when it comes to photography…ask me how I know ! LOL

thanks for the nice comments guys.
Dusty, I believe you are right about the outside pictures, the outside would look much better than my dirty shop.
lol

Dusty, I know what you meant, I find it is easy to laugh about my messy shop. it takes me longer to clean it than the time it stays clean. lol

I find it is best to just laugh about it, because not much else will be done about it.

Ok, I took Dusty56 suggestion and took a few pics outside, the sun was a little too bright, so I took them in the shade, but they do look better than in the shop.
