I have a thing for clocks. This one make it an even bazillion made. This one is all solid white oak except for the clock numerals which are plywood. I had these laser cut in an Arts & Crafts font because I couldn’t find any on line anywhere. The movement is a bim-bam that also plays some tune on the quarter and hour. The only thing left is to put the hook latch on the back door once I get it.

Very nice solid clock. With no winding openilng, I am guessing that it is a battery operated movement. Very
nice old workbench that looks like you have enjoyed many hours at it. Thank you for sharing.

Hey could you give me some info on where you got the numbers for the face, and the rest of the parts.

The bench is a little over 20 years old. I recently removed the shoulder vise and replaced it with a leg vise. The movement is a bim-bam movement I’ve had for a while. When I buy a movement I need, I usually buy a couple of extras.

The guy who made my numerals is John Heavill. He can do numerals in just about any font he has, you supply, or he has to buy. He made several sets of the Arts & Crafts numerals for me. Now that I know of him, I won’t be buying any of the plastic ones again. You can get in touch with him at Laserjch at gmail dot com
John is a very nice guy to deal with. I’m sure you’ll be happy with him.

That’s one beautiful clock. Like the design and the choice of the numerals. Great job!
