I’ve been a member here for a good while now and have yet to show any projects. I figure its about time I got started.
To start with I’m going back to some of the things I’ve done over the last several years. First up, a couple of mantel clocks.
The first clock is made of oak and was inspired by an antique I saw in a store. I guessed at some dimensions and put my own spin to the design. The clock face was made with walnut and cherry inlay. I used a home made beading tool to create the door, and I added a little carving to the top for interest.
The second clock is made of cherry and is an antique reproduction. I used pictures and dimensions from an eBay ad and built it as close to the original as possible.
