I built this clock as a gift for my parents a few years back. The design came out of an old Wood magazine that my father-in-law had, but the dimensions a little bit different. The plans also list a website to order several different styles of panels that fit in the bottom of the clock, but I opted to go with the etched glass instead. I used double-sided tape and paper to do a negative overlay of the “W” and vine design around the outside of the glass, and then a bead blaster to etch it. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out, and my parents like it as well.

I like rustic design and litle touch of G&G.

Great looking mantel clock! I’ve seen this design before, and really like the etched glass for the bottom panel!

Excellent simple design.. Really like the ‘nails/studs’, which draw the eye. Great!
