Outstanding work! I love the inlay work you have done on the crown. A very nice touch. It really sets it apart.

I also like the base mouldings & feet.

I hear yah, on cutting the miters on the swans-neck crown pediment mouldings. Having made many gf clocks, it is the one cut that gives me the most grief and anxious moments.

Great job! Thanks for sharing

That is just absolutely gorgeous. I hope to make a grandfather clock for our place someday, but I’m quite a ways from that kind of workmanship
