Mission Clock made form a pattern in “Complete Guide To Making Wooden Clocks by John A. Nelson published by Fox.
The Clock is made from red oak and finished with a medium walnut oil. The clock mechanism I ordered from Amazon.
Cutting the glass was probably my biggest challenge. I purchased a circular glass cutter from Amazon and it worked remarkable well. I did watch a you tube video of how to use it. The bottom glass is 2.25” diameter which is the smallest circle the device could possibly cut. The top glass is 4.5” diameter.

I have long admired the simplicity of the “Stickley” mission clock and searched for a detailed drawing of the clock. The plans in the book are easy to follow, but the clock mounting is not really clear. Replacing the battery or setting the time requires removing the back and a little bit of finesse.

Sorry my pictures are turned. I don’t know how to load them so that doesn’t happen. They are saved upright. Can someone tell me how to stop them from being rotated when they download?

Great clock build Tiller. I used rare earth magnets to remove the back panels on my clocks.

If you are using a smart phone for your photos take the photos a bit larger than you need. Go to edit and crop it I little.
That will cause it to post upright.

I hope that helps.
