The clock was intended as a house warming gift. They build a colonial so the clock sat in the basement unfinished for about five years. I put a finish to it yesterday and now it belongs to my son. The kit is from Wood Magazine. Good instructions. The clock is made from quartersawn oak, dark walnut stain, a couple coats of wipe on ploy and wax. Thank you for looking.

Well done. The clock combines two of my favorite things, craftsman style and clocks.

I have the plans and parts for the same clock that have been sitting in the workbench drawer waiting for me to build it. Were there any problems with the plans or instructions?

Earl, pretty straight forward. I ran into no issues.
