I love clocks the first one I build was Marc Sommerfeld’s junior grandfather clock. I wanted to build a grandfather with a real movement so I purchase the plans and DVD from The New Yankee workshop. I milled the lumber and started building I did review the DVD more than once. Norm makes it look so easy.
I did not sand very much of the clock I scraped it. The finish I used transient golden brown then a wash coat of shellac that made the grain really pop out. Then I applied special walnut stain then wipe on poly satin finish. I did have the clock turn whitish color in spots and had to remove some of the finish with steel wool. The finish feels rustic that’s what I like.
I purchased the movement from Klockit.
quoting Norm ” This was a fun project”
