This clock was an exercise, to see if I could actually build something with the hand planes and other tools I had been buying. The base is beveled and mitered, the top is mortised styles and rails with a floating panel (the raised portion is a separate piece trimmed to fit). I made it with poplar because it is easy to work with and cheap (in case things didn’t work out). In keeping with it being a hand tool project (my cordless drill is a hand tool :), I used Tried & True Varnish Oil as the finish.
