This was a gift for my in-laws 25th anniversary.
Construction is very simple with rabbets to hold the case together and grooves to fit the center divider. The doors are constructed using mortise and tennon joints cut by hand. The finish is a mixture of boiled linseed oil, varnish and thinner over red oak. I really like the ultra smooth texture it ended up with.
The gift was a huge success and the changes in construction from my previous clock made it much easier to make.
