this clock is the same basic design I have been building for a few years now, except it does not have shelves, I used a quartz clock with chimes and pendulum , the last picture is after aging with tea, steel wool and vinegar, it was a little too dark so I bleached it out and used a golden oak and walnut stain mixture that a lot of antiquers use, then 3 coats of amber shellac, and 2 coats of Crystylac water bourne lacquer the customer wanted it to look old, in these pictures the sun washes it out some, but indoors it does look old. I like the look with the pendulum, and the chimes give it a nice sound.
thanks for looking.

It looks really good. I added it to my favorites to remind me to attempt to make one sometime.

Beautiful work.

But why do the clock and the time-stamp on your camera have two different times ?


Really nice piece !

the clock on the camera is wrong, I will have to reset it some day,lol,
it is a Shaker style clock, they always give things a simple look, that’s what I like about them.
thanks for your nice comments
