This is a Craftsman Style Bracket clock and is fashioned after the Stickley Bracket Clock. It is constructed out of Quarter Sawn White Oak, with ebonized Walnut Pegs. It is shown in two different finishes. The first three pictures it has been stained with Brown Mahogany stain (General Finishes) and clear coated with satin lacquer. The last two pictures has a dye and then a stain over that, then finished with a satin lacquer.

They are 8 3/4” tall 7 3/4” wide at the bottom and 2 3/4” deep. The dial has a custom made face and is a quartz insert.

I really like the style and you did a great job. Love the grain. I do a lot of arts and craft work and was hoping you could tell me more about the clock face and it’s design and where you may have purchasd it.

@Randy, Thank you for the compliment.

@Alongiron, I appreciate the compliment, I too do most of my work in the Arts and Crafts style. These clocks were made for a couple of furniture stores I do work for here in Utah. I made the clock face up myself and installed it in a standard insert.

Well done Max.I like the dye stain version best. That is my favorite but both are great.
Super grain selection and symmetry. Good balance.

Max, Outstanding grain selection. I wasn’t able to pick my preferred finish. These are both excellent.

Those are nice looking A&C clocks! I think I like the darker one better—it just has that look like it’s from the early 1900’s, just Gustav would have made it.

Love your little clocks. I really like the second one. What dye and stain did you use?
