This is one of two Shaker Clocks I have recently made. With this one I decided to make a non-working replica wooden gear clock works for inside as well as a weight and key wind. The hands I made from thin aluminum to look like the originals, it also has a replica pulley cover on top as well. I changed the pendulum to also look like the original. I have only been wood working for a few months and I plan on eventually making all my own furniture for my house. I favor 18th century and early 19th century furniture and have made several small projects to get use to my machines and get them properly set up. I developed a love for woodworking in school some 40 years ago but only recently have I been able to finally get into woodworking. Better late then never.

Very nice looking clocks, very authentic. I like the way you have a Shaker rail to hang them on, also adheres to the Shaker way.

I like the middle rail on the bottom door, I’ve made several of these things and never thought of that.

Good build
