Maple was used for all pieces. And one color of dye stain was used for all the pieces also. The carved pieces was thinned and was soaked over night and the body was air brushed with the same stain but with less clear thinner, and I used acetone for the thinner.
The swinging pendulum bob weighs about the same as the round copper bob that came with the movement and it came from Klockit.
It just might be the only people who might want to purchase this clock be from Texas with a Methodist church background but hey, gotta start somewhere. And I can change that part if some Yankee Doodle Dandy shows up on my door step…
Clear gloss lacquer is the culprit that brought the shine.
The movement called for a 3/16” or less thickness for the stem which also called for a 5/16” hole to stick through for the hands and it said the swinging pendulum would be set back 1/2” from the face of the wood. All movements have different specks so be aware when building a clock for it is better to have the movement in your hand before starting to carve up the wood.
