One of my Granddaughters got married, so I thought this would be an ideal project for her wedding gift
I purchased the plan for this clock from Turncraft Clocks.
As you can see by the attached photo, I modified the plan quite a bit. I changed some of the dimensions, & created my own moldings. I also cut some 1/4” Glass for the shelves. The design of the finial at the top was redesigned also. Also if you look closely at the interior back wall, you’ll see a heart shaped Walnut plaque with with bride & grooms names, & wedding date carved on it.
My Choice of wood was Black Walnut, which came from a railroad tie that I had re-sawed into boards. The light wood is Black Ash from Northern Minnesota. I sanded it down to 240 grit with a linseed oil finish.
The pattern for the Rose carving at the top was found in Tattoo images on the internet.
This was a work of Love
