I made this Shaker style wall clock from Cherry for my youngest daughter, it has some nice figuring in it but these pictures do not do it justice. On this clock even though it has a Quartz Pendulum Movement I installed a removable shelf so she could use it to display her Hello Kitty plush dolls. The pendulum can be installed at a later date if she so desires. Also in the top side glass windows, instead of being able to see the clock works I made small shadow boxes behind the clock dial board and put in pink, her favorite color along with purple, artificial flowers which can be changed or removed by removing the clock dial board. I made a Shaker Peg Board by which to hang her clock. She seems happy with it. Last pic is of our curious cat Miss Chevious who peeked out from behind the curtain to see what I was up to.

Sweet clock, great build. Nice touch with the removable shelf.
