Tall Buffalo Clock

This is my version of a Tall Buffalo Clock. Buffalo Clocks got their names because of the rounded shape and the wide tops. I made mine out of some knotty red oak, finished with dark walnut oil and 3 coats of clear shellac sanding with 1000 grit between coats. I made a simple round rabbeted door on the back that is slightly out of round so that when you turn it in the perfectly round opening on the clock back it locks itself. I hope you enjoy it.

Like that. Been trying to decide what style of clock I want to make for my little lady. For some reason she has to know what time it is almost all day long. Going to make clocks where no matter where she is at home she will be able to see a clock.
This is a simple clock yet has class. I really like this one

Thanks for the comments.

1000 grit sandpaper is the best. I get an old fashion finish with a ultra smooth surface.

Nicely done on the clock. The top really sets it off.
