This was a very hard and challenging project. I bought the Clock parts from clock it and then used them as a template for what I wanted the clock to look like. I kinda drew the clock out on a huge 1o ft long paper and went to work. Most of the ideas came to me as I was building or they just happened. Like the crown and the top part of the clock. I turned all the turnings on this clockwith a router lathe machine. The only thing I did not do on this clock was install the glass. It is made out of cherry wood and is stained with clear laquer. It took me about 5 months to build the entire clock. The drawer on the bottom opens up for a small storage area. I made one section at a time so that it can come apart into 3 sections for easy moving. It took me a month to make the turnings and about a month the sand the entire clock with 100gr, 150gr and 180gr. I enjoyed making this clock and had a little help from a very good woodworking friend of mine who provided his guidance for me along the way. I learned so much making this and I am VERY PROUD of it. Anyone that sees it asks if I am taking orders and I tell them NO! I built it for my wife and I will never build another one again!
