This is another one of my clocks that I built for a customer. Quarterswan white oak, aniline dye, lacquer with wax finish. The movement is a Kieninger 9 bell. Beautifull movement that really sounds great but cost a pretty penny. Thanks for looking and for all the nice compliments!

All I can say is, you are good. These clocks are fantastic! Some of us do woodwork, but guys like you and others here are artists.

That’s a great clock! It has the grandfather clock feel to it. The classy movement really makes it sing. Lots of good craftsmanship an loads of fine details. Your client must be very happy.

Wonderful clock. It kind of looks like a bonnet to a grandmother clock.

Thats very nicely done and would look super on my mantle just the way it is

Those chrome/nichel hinges sorta “pop”............maybe brass or black to soften that up a tad

The hinges are brass. The light made them look silver. I wanted to use antique brass but the customer wanted the bright brass. Thanks for the compliments…

The hinges match the knob…no biggy although now that you’ve mentioned it , I think your choice would have been better : ) I’ve never seen such a fancy must sound great !

It sounds great but it cost $600 just for the movement and that was a sale price. I’ve seen it listed at clock suppliers for $900…
