My New Shop Clock !

I wanted to make a chiming clock for my shop and I saw this plan in Popular Woodworking a while back.
It is a reproduction of a 1910 Gustav Stickley Mantle Clock with my variation being the addition of a time triggered chime movement which strikes on the hour.
I did a lot of the work by hand, (which is a first for me) including the through tenons, and molding work.
The dove tails were done with my Keller jig.
The walnut back and sounding board were resawn and glued up to make a pleasing pattern and nice contrast with the molding.
The faceted dial face was tricky to cut and my daughter who is a great scroll saw artist helped me.
The ramped hinge mortises had to be just right to allow for the required door reveal.
The case is made from a single reclaimed oak board, including the turned door pull.
The dimensions are 14H x 8.5W x 5.5D.

The finish is boiled linseed oil and several coats of briwax.

Thanks for looking and have a nice day!

-- Having fun...Eric

Beautiful job, Eric! And that is the handsomest shop clock I’ve ever seen. :o)

Pretty nifty, and good workmanship. I have a derelict red numbered digital in my shop, but it does the job….but it isn’t pretty like yours….........

I like the simple elegance of it. Very nice and timeless.
