I made 2 of these clocks in 2013. They turned out nice. I wanted to make the glass removable, so I made a removable back piece with brass screws. I used white oak on those 2 clocks.
I simplified the design and decided to make 4 of them from red oak for gifts to family members for Christmas 2014.
I also used Behlen’s grain filler on these 4 clocks to get a mirror finish. I got some glass colors from Kokomo Glass, and ended up with 3 different color options for these clocks. The gift recipient can easily change the glass color using 2 dowels, 1/8” diameter with axle cap handles.
To see my trials & tribulations of making these 4 clocks, see my web site.
