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.
