This clock stands over 7.5 feet high and is made of solid cherry. The top (with the crown) slides over to reveal a secret comparment. Now I just need to be able to afford valuables to hide! It is finished with natural danish oil. The secret compartment can be seen better in the pictures.

Great job on the clock, but your secret compartment is no longer a secret since you posted it on the internet.

I only used a battery operated movement because of the cost. I am looking to eventually swap it out for a more traditional movement when the time is right.
