I made another Shaker Clock of Pine but made the doors using through mortise and tendon joinery. I also did not put in the side glass on this clock as former clocks. I made the trim around the clock dial a bit fancier with an arch and floral design and in the last pic I made a wood stick pendulum for it but liked it so well I put it in my Chestnut Clock instead. The wood stick pendulum is adjustable in length by sliding it up or down in the top mount I made. I think I’ll be making more of this style of pendulum for future clocks I’m making as gifts. I hand picked a more figured pine board with knots and interesting grain and re-sawed the board for the back and book matched it for a more interesting look. I’m making two more clocks right now, one for my mother-in-law and one for my brother-in-law for appreciation in their helping us out during a tough time. My brother-in-law’s clock will have a single glass lower door instead of a double glass pane door.
