This was my first attempt at creating something worth displaying in the house. It is of the Craftsman style. I built it using quarter sawn white oak. I am lucky, in that I have a wholesaler close by that sells lumber in the rough. Otherwise, I would not have been able to afford the lumber. The clock turned out a lot better than I imagined.
Now my concern is which one of my kids will get it. To get the look I first dyed the cabinet with a waterbased dye. I do not remember the color. After that dried I rubbed on a wiping stain. After that, came several coats of wipe on poly.

That is a nice, clean clock. Well done! Do you happen to remember where you got the clock hardware / clock face? I really like it. Thanks for sharing.

Skip,

Beautiful work. You should be justifiably proud of your effort. To maintain peace in the family in the years to come, you may as well get started on a clock for each of the other kids.

Was this design from a plan that is available online, or elsewhere? I would like to purchase the plan for my own future use.

Skip,

Well done my friend. I have become enamored with the “Craftsman” style and I think your clock is a great example. Well executed, classic lines, and will always been in style. Thanks for the post!
