This project includes a Shaker peg rail to show how it would have been used in the common hall. It is made of oak and stained Bartley Gel stain – Georgian Cherry; and left unfinished. The catch I made myself from sheet brass.

Beautiful. Love that clock have built several. Building one out of butternut like the original in Hancock Shaker Village.
Like the color very much. The peg rail is a must and very well proportioned. Thanks so much for sharing.

My wife and I are building the same clock. Norm Abram’s plans gave us fits to understand in the doors. So i am going to chop the mortises by hand and hand sa the tenons centered and go from there. We are doing this one in cherry with a shellac qanf WB varish finish.
The second one will out of black walnurt.
