This piece is really just based on the 1840 wall clock design. I modified the design to incorporate glass doors for the pendulum and I used a smaller clock face to allow the Sepele to show more around the clock face. I also did not apply the typical half round hanger found on the top of most shaker clocks.
The clock is 32 1/2” tall, 11 1/2” wide, and 4 1/4” deep.
The wood is Sepele and the hinges are from Horton Brasses. I used neodinium magnets and a small finish nail to hold the doors closed.
As always with my projects it was all done with hand tools only.
Here are some pictures of the build.
Rough cut lumber.
The carcase taking shape.
Fitting the back panels.
Round over details with a block plane.
Cutting rebates in the door rails to accept the glass.
Gluing up the parts.
Applying the finish.
After waxing the pieces and final assembly, this is what I’ve got.
