Bought this chiming mechanism from cherrytree.com 2 years ago and finally got around to building the clock. No plans just kept visualizing what I wanted it to be. Didn’t recess the door panel for the glass, well no biggie no one will see it, but shotty thinking on my part. But all in all I thought it came out decent. I had to cut 2 holes in the top to get the right sound from the westminister chimes. And boy let me say for a battery operated mechanism its pretty bold. Its all solid walnut made from plaques being thrown out by a Insurance. co. that was remodeling their floor. Was thinking of turning the spindles myself but I had these laying around for years and they were starting to darken so I used them. Had to make some kind of stand so I threw some maple together to bring out the contrast. It stands 28’’ tall and 10’’ wide. Hope the pictures come out good.
