This clock is actually a repost of a previously shown unfinished project. I have been lax (or too busy) in getting my completed projects posted at this wonderful site. I now have my pictures in order and will be posting several new project in the coming days.
This clock is the completed version of the unfinished clock show in my project post “Room Full of Grandfathers”
Like the other grandfather cases that I have made, this clock is entirely handmade in locally purchased red oak and no purchased mouldings were used.
I finished the oak case in a custom mix of 3 different oil based stains and then applied 3 coats of gloss and 3 coats of semi-gloss General Finishes Arm-R-Seal (a great product that I recommend each of you try) for a deep warm appearance.
The movement is a Hermle cable driven triple chime. The chimes are very clear and the melody carries through the entire house.
A real challenge to my skills as a woodworker and an ultimate joy to create I enjoy thinking of the life that this clock will have in its owners home and will hopefully be passed down for generations to enjoy.
Thanks For letting me share
