Not much to say about this clock. The wood is fumed white oak, the face is some quilted maple veneer attached to a plywood substrate. The dial pips are 3/8” copper rod sitting slightly proud of the dial surface. The face is behind a glass front.

One thing that I find a challenge is to find a way that allows the glass to be replaceable. I know it probably never will need to be fixed, but I worry that some day it will break and whoever has the clock will be cursing me for making the glass inaccessible.

This clock allows the lower rail to slide out, exposing the slot where the glass slides in. The securing screws are hidden in the rear, outta sight!

Beautifully done. The quilted maple is perfect.

Beautiful and unusual joints and frame in general is outstanding. Especialy maple veneer looks great.

Very nice work. Your attention to details in the framing makes it stand out. I love the copper rod dial pips and framing highlights.
