Stickley inspired mantel clock made of cherry with hand cut dovetails. Quartz movement. A few changes from the original. Face pattern from Popular Woodworking December 2008 pdf online. Had to learn and make small leaded glass window. Overall very challenging project.

Very nice! I like it a lot ! Always wanted to get into that stained/leaded glass thing. You may have just motivated me to do something about that. New Years resolution: Be more like Art with his “Art” glass!!

Very nicely done brother.
But, then again, I’m biased.

Great looking Stickley clock! Simple, elegant—and the stained glass really finishes it!

Beautiful work. I see that the outline of the clock is available as a pdf, but how did you make the numbers? Did you print the face dial on your printer??

The dial face was printed on resume paper with a laser printer, fastened to 1/8” plywood with spray contact cement, and then sprayed with satin lacquer. The lacquer darkened the paper somewhat.
