Walnut Mantle Clock, Wedding gift.

A friend of mine is getting married in a couple of weeks. He’s the same age as my grown son, and I half raised this boy, he was always around the house. I figured buying him a wedding present, wouldn’t mean as much as something I built, so here’s a couple of pics of the clock I built for him and his new Bride.

I wanted to keep it fairly simple, so I didn’t use any secondary woods, and I made the drawer pull as simple as I could think to make it. Only extravagance is the bracket feet, and the do-hicky on the top.

Anyway….this is what it looks like, I think he’ll be satisfied.

Thanks for lookin’!

Great job. I think he will be more than satisfied. Much more thought involved to making rather than buying a gift and this one will last a lifetime. Jerry

What a beautiful clock and wonderful gift. I totally agree…. Something like this will “Always” mean so much more than something just bought. Good stuff!

Looks great, adding the drawer is a nice touch.

I wish I could take credit for the design…but the plans came from Woodsmith if I remember correctly. I added the bracket feet, and the do-hicky, but the design was theirs.

Another beautiful project.
That is ten times better then a store bought present.
Every time he looks at that clock, he’ll remember where it came from.

Nice job.
