Cherry Mantle clock

I wanted to test some cherry that I recently picked up, so I thought I would tackle this clock. It is from a Woodsmith plan. I finished it with two coats of clear Danish oil. I am happy with the way it turned out as I am getting a little better at this “woodworkin stuff”.

Thanks for looking, and as always I appreciate any feedback, good and constructive.

Overall , a very nice clock : )
If you put it into a sunny room , that Cherry will darken up all by itself in no time at all. : )

Thanks guys.
I bought two sets of clock works and am planning to build another one with some walnut I have.
Hopefully I can eliminate a couple of the things that tripped me up on this one. The mitered frame around the glass is not as “tight” as I would have liked, but it seems to keep acurate time.. (*_^)

Very nice looking clock. I think one of those has to go on my short list; if it goes on my long list, it will still be sitting there when I’m gone. Nice job – the cherry looks nice and as someone said, if you place it in a window for a few days, rotating it occasionally, the cherry will darken nicely.

Thanks for posting.

Looks great! I’ve made this exact same clock, though mine was hickory and darker stain. Fun clock to make!
