Another wonderful clock, such craftsmanship. I know this one is for a customer, but when you do your clocks that you sell do you do them in runs of a few or just individual? The ray on this oak are great. Where do you get your quarter sawn oak?

Ooooohhh! Nice work! Please, do tell – what is the finish? Did you fume? I have a stock of 3” x 6” q-sawn curly white oak taken from our timberframe home from a remodel. I am planning a morris chair from that (among other projects) and want to accentuate the grain as much as possible.

Very nice. Don’t know I’ve ever seen White Oak stained/died dark, usually I’ve seen it kept natural. Very nice.

Hey Terry very nice as usual. Is the clock sitting on the shelf? Or is it one unit that is hung by the back of the clock body? What was finish you used to get it dark? Stain, dye, fumed? I finally sold one of those Mission clocks that we talked about before. Maybe that broke the ice. Still looking forward to seeing your take on a
Greene and Greene clock.

All good comments here!

Love the quartersawn White Oak. I am searching for some of those white porcelain Dials? Who is your source for clock movements? I have done a clock with beveled glass in the pendulum window. Good work. Don
