I decided to try something different. I built the clock out of red oak and finished it in mission style. I then designed the clock face along with the side windows and front panels in the door out of stained glass. The stained glass work in this project was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I then installed the clock works and back lighting. It sits in my entry to my library. I find it to be one of my fondest pieces that I have ever built.

Very nice for someone who is self taught… wait, very nice even if someone else taught you.

Fantastic. I’m a big fan of mixing media.

magnificent. (ditto to everyone’s comments above)
and I love how the green in the glass picks up the green of the plants in the other room. Really adds to the connection.

Thank you all for the very warm welcome- and comments about my work. I am truly humbled. Those of you who commented and were wondering – most of the pieces displayed on my web page ( are still displayed in my home. All of the pictures you see were taken in my home which I restored and still live in. The stained glass ceiling is in my library. The ceiling is my pride and joy. The ceiling has been the subject of a up coming tv show on HGTV which will be airing January 26 2007. 6:00 ET/PT. ( Look What I Did) is the name of the show.If I can figure out how ,I will post some pictures for those of you who are interested. I’m still trying to figure out how to respond to each of you who commented. Thus far-I haven’t been able to so. I didn’t want to be rude and decided to make this general post. My apologies.

No worries Dusty,... we have a lot of back and forth in these comment sections.

Looking forward to seeing your work on the Big(er) screen! Congratulations!

Wow, dusty, I’m off the Net for a few days and look what I discover when I return. Just love the clock and the look of your home from what I can see. It’s looking very authentic Arts & Crafts. A belated welcome to LumberJocks from downunder, and an encouragement to keep showing us what you are making.
