Very nice indeed. It shows amazing restraint in its design. It can be so tempting to add some unnecessary ‘twiddly bits’!

Excellent design and beautiful craftsmanship. I love projects that are unclutered and don’t hide or distract from the beauty of the wood. I may very well copy this if I can find a pendilum clock and then if I can’t i may copy it with a non-pendilum clock.

Just love this clock, would you mind posting the dimensions and the make of the clock mechanism? The longest clock movement with a pendulum I find is 13 inches. Your project I’m guessing is 33×7 x 3 inches. I have a piece of wood that would be look killer with this design.
