I made this clock as a gift to my eldest daughter and her new husband. You can read about its’ construction on the the blog I kept for them. It is out of cherry, finished with BLO and clear shellac. The shelves and clock dial frame are birdseye maple. The dial is hand hammered copper and the hardware is oil rubbed bronze. I picked up some new skills like fitting a door to an opening, installing a lock and this was my first successful frame and panel. Thanks for looking, all comments are welcomed.

That turned out beautifully, Kenn!

I really like the look of the latch/locks.
