This was one of three clocks made for Christmas presents the spouse daughters. One of walnut (shown), one of red oak, one of ash. Plans from Woodcraft and movement purchased from Schlumbacher in Iowa.

Fun project with lots of small parts. Required a jig to be constructed to assemble the columns and inserts.

Great looking clock! I’ve always liked clocks with pendulums!
