Replica of a C.1840, J. N. Dunning, Burlington, VT, 8-day “Parliament” style wall timepiece. Walnut with walnut burl waist and door. I even emulated the cracking and separation that occurs on burl veneer of this age. Pendulum driven works. Lots of band saw work on cutting out the lower parts!
Wood: Walnut and walnut burl veneer
Tools used: table saw, miter saw, band saw, scroll saw, thickness sander, finish sander, thickness planer, router, jointer, shaper, 1” belt sander, oscillating spindle sander, hand chisels, low-profile block plane, glass cutter.
Finish: Mohawk tinting sprays, shellac. (No Minwax found in this shop!)
