Man i dig clocks…
This is a very simple design for what i call a granny clock (much smaller then grandfather and can hang on the wall).
They are 5” deep by about 24” tall and 8” wide, the first two pics are cherry with a textured oak leaf glass, the third is also oak leaf glass with mahogany. When i made the mahogany one i had a sample clock face made from plastic and just slapped it on there and i really didn’t like it but thats how we learn. The brass one on the cherry clock looks much more refined hee hee.
I made about half a dozen of these and sold them at various shows but the cherry one is in my garage as of last week because it fell off the wall at my wifes office and i’m going to have to do some mending. Hmmmmmmmm maybe i’ll jump out there and make some more…
Finished it up with my own version of the french polish (shellac and poly) and presto done.
One of these days i’ll do a full size grandfather i just have to get up the nerve.
Anyway enjoy, any crits are very welcome.. Have a great day Doug
