The second English style wooden carriage clock that I made. See my other English Carriage clock – 1 for more detail.

The style is sometimes called a ‘library clock’, though more usually a ‘four glass bracket clock’; the glass in front of the dial isn’t included in the count! The case is made from Western Australian Jarrah, and it is veneered in cherry, with box wood stringing. It uses another Hermle ting-tang movement.

Your clocks are every bit the equal of your boxes! Really nice work. Compliments all round.

You can see I’m getting bored having read your PM and replied! Small clocks like this one are as much fun as boxes – probably easier, though with quite a range of different construction methods to work out.
