I built three of these back around the Christmas time frame. The others were presents and made of black cherry and I will post them when my brothers send me pictures. Anyways I acquired this wormy chestnut from a barn remodel about 10 years ago. The doors are half lap construction and all other joinery is of the dado variant. I made the hanger a bit different than the usual 4×12 board that the plan from fine woodworking suggests. The pin that this clock hangs from is actually a nail used in some sunken vessels in a certain waterway close to our Capital. Finished with one coat of tung oil and three coats of wipe on poly. Look between the 11-12 and see a splotch of blood I need to wipe off. For sale btw
