After I finished my last project, a reproduction of a 1905 WB Brown oak lamp, I had some white oak and opalescent glass left over.
I searched the Internet looking for a Mission style project that requires white oak and glass. I found a neat looking clock pattern on Amazon, shown in one of the pictures above. I bought the pattern.
I decided to modify the pattern by leaving out the small cross-bars on the lower half of the clock, so the opalescent glass would be more visible. I also used glass instead of a mica sheet. When I tried to buy the black colored square movement, I found it was obsolete. The closest thing I could find was a Klock-it square movement that was gold. I bought it plus a round movement to see how it would look.
The 2 clocks turned out to be cute little Mission style clocks.
If you are interested in learning about my trials & tribulations building these two clocks, you can see all the steps at my web site.
