I made this clock for our friends that are moving into their first home on Christmas Eve. I thought a clock would be nice for the mantle. It is made from QSWO and is finished with Dark Walnut Danish Oil and 3 coats of Shellac with 2 coats of wax. The back is a friction fit design that is cut from one piece of oak and miter at a 30 degree bevel downward to secure the bottom in place.The clock itself is from Klockit and is a chiming clockworks. The clock face I purchased from It is a timeless design that should be in their family for a long time.
