A clock project by another LJ member Shiney5757 caught my eye recently. He makes use of the vertical grain lines beautifully in his design. Simple and elegant. He was kind enough to share the details of its construction.
My design is similar in the idea of letting the wood speak for itself. I have a bundle of freak figured Anigre veneer that I thought would be perfect for this project. Dimensions are 21×3.5×6.75 inches.
The box is made from 1/4 BB plywood and finished in Watco Danish oil. A French cleat hold the box to the wall.
Their are 1 inch wide slots for a pendulum to poke out of. My mechanism was not swinging when I took the images.
This was just a quick project, 4 hours in total, and most of that was waiting for the glue to dry.
