I made this arts and crafts style grandfather clock a couple years ago. All my life I wanted a tall case clock. When I got really interested in the arts and crafts style I just merged the two ideas together. This is the only project I have built using puchased plans. This is a peice that Norm built on the New Yankee Workshop. I am specially proud of the large cove molding at the top. That was made from scratch on the table saw. I had seen Norm use that technique on another project and I didnt beleive it would really work. I didnt have a clue as to the angle or anything but it came out nicely. As usual most of the wood is pallet wood, even the glass came from old windows out of a dumpster. I didnt put a real movement into it. The price is a bit more than I thought it would be. Maybe someday.
