I’m making 3 mantle clocks using the basic Greene and Greene plans available online. I posted the first one (qtr sawn oak). This version is cherry with walnut highlights finished with the Maloof finish and wax (several coats – I lost count). The tile is Mowtawi.

Since I just finished the side table I thought it might make a nice picture of two projects I’ve recently completed.

I’m also working on a walnut version that will be all Greene and Greene. After that, I want to make some other mantle clocks and a wall clock – all craftsman style. Thankfully there are lots of really good examples on here that can be used to get the creative process going. Hopefully my wife won’t mind all the clocks around the house.

That goes very well on that table. Excellent job! The tapers show much better in this photo than the table project one.

Beautiful! I will have to add a clock on the Woodworking ‘Bucket List’. Someday I would like to tackle a grandfather clock.
