Shaker wall clock that I constructed out of walnut and finished with Tried and True varnish oil and wax. The completed clock fits right at home on the Shaker style pegboard’s that we have in our house.

Very nice. The idea of hanging from the Peg is brilliant, thanks for this idea.

David, I have an original clock almost like that that sits on my dresser. You did a great job on that and it looks almost like an original. Good job.

Got to love the Shaker style !!
Also the Walnut is a nice choice versus the normal Cherry or Pine .: )

Nicely done,I especially like the way you incorporated the grain design into the lower panel. That adds a special touch.

Very nice clock! Initially I could not see why everyone likes shaker styled objects so much, but the more I am exposed to it, the more I begin to see what all the fuss is about. The simplicity just takes time to see the beauty in.
