This is the clock I made as a gift for my oldest daughter when she graduated college.
I found the inspiration for this clock in a book by E. J. Tyler called Clocks & Watches. The third photo is the scanned image from the book. I liked the simple lines and I especially liked the ribbon shaped crown.
Of course there were no plans available for this clock so I bought a set of plans for a Vienna Wall Regulator just I could get the dimensions right. Then I redrew them to emulate the photo of the original 18th century clock.
The wood is Honduras Mahogany, the movement is German, the dial is hand painted by The Dial House in Georgia and the finish is MinWax Antique Oil.
If you would like a copy of the plans I can send you a free copy by email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
