This is a Norm design clock that I built about nine years ago. It is made of alder.

Stan, I really like this clock. I looks like it’s designed to hang from a peg on the coat rack? How are the joints made? I’m going to make a couple of clocks for my children, as Christmas gifts – I think this just may be the design I’ll use.

Beautiful…

I really like the alder…

I made one a few years ago from some Walnut that came off of my dad and grandfather’s farm. I gave it to my sister as a Christmas gift.

Love the work

cajunpen, thanks for the nice comments. The coat rack is just Shaker pegs mounted on a board for this purpose. The joinery is simple rabbets and nails. Complete detail can be found in Norm Abrams, ” Mostly Shaker from the New Yankee Workshop”. It is actually pictured on the cover.

Very nice work on the clock, and the alder came out beautiful. What stain did you use?

Ditto from Bill – I would be intrested in the finnishing tecnique you used – we have a lot of alder here and I am always looking for new ways to present it.
