This is a grandmother clock I built back in high school. I used home-sawed red oak that came off of my parent’s property. It plays the Westminster chime.

Thanks Jim! I definitely learned a lot from it. There are things I would love to change or mistakes to hide but I figure that it just adds to the nostalgia of when I built it haha.

Great looking Grandmother clock—and especially since you did it in high school! I love these old clocks, and I’m sure your’s will be handed down for generations!
