We needed a clock in the large living room and we have all Mission-Style of Arts & Crafts furniture throughout the house.

I made this little clock to match the “Rainbow coming out of the house” project I had done earlier.

I truly think one the best tools in my shop are the Veritas Set-Up blocks. I use them for EVERYTHING.

You can see where I rabbeted the “back” of the front for the glass, and then glued the deeply rabbeted “box” that holds the clock face and the little motor (which also holds the glass in. Those Set-Up blocks really made all this easy.

White Oak with Waterlox Original semi-satin.

Best………… Bruce

You know…....... I love so many projects on here that just impress the heck out of me or I learn something, etc.

But I don’t always comment or give the praise deserving to those pieces

I need to do that more.

I appreciate you all taking the time to post ….........and also appreciate the kind words from everyone.

Have your say...
