I did this wall clock several years ago, but never got around to posting it here. I worked from plans, but don’t remember where I got them. The wood is quartersawn curly red oak. The finish is an oil-urethane finish, 3-4 coats. The glass was recycled from an old house window that had been replaced. Because of all the angles, I had the local glass shop cut the glass. The movement is a quartz movement that sounds on the quarter-hour, and strikes out the time on the hour.

Hooky, I cleaned up my shop this morning, and found a printed copy of the plans. They are from the March 1999 issue of Wood Magazine. The plans are available for purchase at Wood Magazine
