This clock is my latest project. The second picture is the inspiration. The tricky part was cutting the through mortises into the dowel rods then making them all line up. But my Oh sh*t moment came when I realized that I couldn’t fit the clock part into my mortising machine. Ended up cutting them by hand (which was a first for me). It turned out to be a good experience and not as tough as I thought it would be. The top and base are mahogany, dowels and clock frame are walnut and the square rods (tenons) and clock face cover are cherry and the clock face is maple.
