It’s is my first attempt at a shaker wall clock. I love the design of the shaker clock and I want to build many more of these. This one is made from walnut with a book matched crotch figure door panel. I wanted it to look old not new so I used three colors of dye layered on to make the walnut look old. It is finished with amber shellac. I think it turned out to look old but I hope you agree. The glass panel is cut down from a window panel from an old house in North Carolina and is 150 years old. I have several more panels so I can make clocks. I turned the small knobs in shop.

Really nice Rodney. When I build one (or more), I want to follow your craftsmanship!

You might want to set your goals a little higher. Thank you for the kind words.

Very nice looking clock. Love the face and the door panel : )
You should take a picture of it outside on a sunny day.
