I made this clock for my son Michael, and used elements from both Mission and Arts and Crafts style. The body is quarter sawn White oak and the accents are Walnut. Thats a piece of black granite behind the grill. This is another example of how to use the splines (Walnut strips) to hold the center frame together and also “frame” the clock and grill.The main body is joined with mortise and tenons.Two of the pins at each bottom corner are functional and the other two were added to balance out the design. The clock face is a print I found online and downloaded and printed.The clock is a quartz unit.The finish is an antique English Oak stain and an oil/poly blend top coat.
