A buddy of mine does clock and watch repairs and needed a stand to work on grandfather clock movements. We looked in the watch supply catalogs and they offer one that looks to be made out of pine 2×4’s. I made this one similar to the one in the catalog but upsized the dimensions and made it from white oak… Weighs a ton :). The stand is 50” tall by 30” wide. The top of the stand has “H” bar slides to adjust for different movements. Finish is BLO. Thanks for looking.

Now that is heavy duty! It should hold up a ton of clocks with one arm tied behind its back! LOL. Tell your friend he should put it in his will. Nice work!
