I decided to make some clocks this year for Christmas gifts. The two in the back went to my mother and my mother-in-law. The other style in the front I gave to my son and his new wife. All are made from quartersawn white oak with wenge behind the grill of the middle clock. Thanks for looking!

Did you design these? Or, are there plans available somewhere? They look great.

Just noticed you are in York. Do you ever get over to Columbia and visit the clock museum?

I’ve been to the clock museum once years ago. The clock in front is from plans through Wood magazine. The other two I guess I designed. Found some similar online and made a few changes.

Nice job!

I built a bunch of the center clocks also, you can see them on my woodworking web site.

You can download a Google Sketchup design of my version of the clock here.

Nice Dale. I actually think your site was one I had come across when I was first researching these clocks.

That’s a great looking set of A&C clocks! I’m sure everyone who got one just loves it!

What finish did you use to give the oak that nice antique look?

Finished with honey amber Transtint dye, GF oil stain, and antique walnut gel stain glaze with sealcoat between each. Then 3 coats of satin Arm-R-Seal.

Love the design. I love 1/4 white oak! I have a bunch stashed to take me through retirement.

Have your say...
