This is one of the clocks that I built for our home. It’s made of oak stained dark to look like they did back in the day. The works is a quartz movement with a small speaker for the chimes. It sounds very realistic.

Great clock did you do the face yourself?

The finish gives it the age, nice.

Thanks guys. No, I didn’t do the face myself, I got it from Lee Valley Tools (I’m an addict not an employee)

Hey Dusty,
Welcome to LJ’s and congrats on the fine build.
I have made several period reproductions with a twist, like using red oak instead of white oak, and if you take a can of Minwax Golden Oak and add a couple tablespoons of Minwax Walnut stain you will come up with a stain that looks very close to the Ammonia fuming look of the period. Yours looks very good.
Looking forward to your next post.
