I made this Craftsman style wall clock for my daughters upcoming wedding. I blogged about here if you would like to see the progress from the start. http://lumberjocks.com/Timbo/blog/series/2005 I used Quarter sawn white oak, finished with Transtint medium brown dye and Shellac. Because I was on the fence about using a quartz movement, I made dial removable and the door open so later a mechanical movement could be installed with minimal fit up.

Great Job. But being “old school” on clocks I vote for a mechanical movement….before it leaves your shop. One with a hour half hour strike action would be great. Keep the quartz movement as a backup when the mechanical movement wears out in about 50 years.
Try Merritt’s Antiques for a movement. They sell all kinds of new clock works and parts. On the internet.

Plenty of detail on this piece, great eye candy. QSWO and its flecking is a favorite of mine. This should get plenty of rave reviews and year of enjoyment. Nice work all around…Blkcherry

Hey Timbo, I was not happy with my quartz movement/pendulum purchase for my clock. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Les B- Believe me I considered a mechanical movement and reluctantly chose the quarts, it is a Hermle but still not a mechanical. The deciding factor was (after some discussions) I think the chances are greater the batteries will get changed once a year than winding the movement every week. Also the fact that I can upgrade it to a mechanical movement later.
