I saw a picture of this clock online and decided to make it for my sister in law. It has a swinging pendulum that I had to cut the lenth of the shaft to fit. All of the wood is red oak, the face is a red mahogany dye, and then sprayed with satin poly.

Cool!
What are the dimensions, and what did you use for the face?
Is the clock battery operated?
It’s very nice. I’ll be she loves it.

Great looking clock, the pendelum ( spelling ) has a soft touch to it.
