Oak Regulator Wall Clock

This regulator style clock was my first project. The rails and stiles are from quarter sawn oak. I made the stained glass panel and the face is antique glass. The next time I build it I will use a nice clock movement instead of the “cheapie” battery movement.

Nicely done. I like the glass insert, it makes it very distinctive.

Very nice looking… how much time did the stained glass take?

A good friend of mine is a stained glass master. He designed the pattern and made most of the small cuts for me. The Bevels were pretty much off the shelf. The glass covering the clock face is Antique Glass and has a nice shimmer to it. I would say there is probably 12-15 man hours in the glass work.

Well if you had made a real clock movement it would have been covered up by that beautiful stained glass.
