This is a Mission tall clock that I completed a few weeks ago. The clock is made from white oak, stained with an alcohol dye, and then a dark walnut oil stain. It has 3 coats of wipe on poly. This was a fun project because it involved pocket, mortise and tenon, and biscuit type joinery, with lots of dados and rabbet joints. The movement is a mechancial 8 day movement. The side panels have a grill which allows the sound to radiate from the cabinet. The grill is removable on both sides so I can easily work on the movement. The last picture is the actual movement photgraphed through the removed grill opening. I am happy to say it keeps excellent time.
