these three clocks were made for three of my brothers, having made one for my youngest a few years ago, and for all my nieces and nephews when they get married, I felt it was time to make one for the other three, two are quarter sawn red oak, the other is walnut. the doors are mitered with outside splines ( I don’t know what else to call them) instead of splines on the inside of the corners, this is the first time I have tried the outside spline, I think it adds an interesting feature to the doors.
I only had 2 each of the dials, so I used 2 of one kind and one of the other.
I just did get these finished in time for our family reunion this Sat. I was pressed for time because of my accident, I wanted to make sure they were done because one brother lives in Colorado, so he will be able to take it back with him now.
any comments good or bad are welcome.
