I like the wider rails. Did you hang it?

Yes, I just uploaded a picture of it in it’s present position.

I am not really happy with the finish on it. I had intended to do it “shabby chic” to fit in with other furniture but wasn’t confident of the technique when I did it – I’m still not. I might redo it in some kind of real wood one day, this was just an exercise in becoming familiar with my new Kreg pocket hole jig.

My clock mechanism didn’t come with a dial so I made my own.

Yes Shane, it was a bit of an experiment to see if MDF was suitable for furniture making – it is very easy to work with other than the dust – but I was a bit surprised how heavy this turned out – so furniture that would be likely to be moved around is probably not on.

GCM, I searched Google Images for your clock and found one that I thought was visually similar, maybe a bit nicer because it was made from white oak. It retails for US$485. You could probably find a reasonable answer to your question with a half hours “market research”. HTH

Cheers, I hadn’t thought of doing a Google images search – obvious really, once someone points it out ;-)

I have not much experience with “market research”, I thought that was what I was doing ha ha!
