I built this clock for my Mom as a Christmas present from my Dad. I have always wanted to build one, so I approached my Dad with an idea. He provides the materials, and I provide the labor under the condition that someday the clock becomes mine. I cannot take credit for the design as the company I bought the Clockworks from provided the plans, although I made some changes to meet my personal tastes. I usually design my own projects, but as this was my first clock, I wanted some dimensional guidelines. The last thing I wanted was to build the case, install the clockworks, swing the pendulum and have the pendulum hit the sides of the case. I used Quarter Sawn Red Oak for the case and beveled glass in the door. It was a great project and I look forward to the day I can build one for my wife as I hope many years will pass before this one comes to my house.
