Project Information

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this site and I am looking forward to sharing some of my projects with you as well as enjoying looking at all of yours. I am an artist and craftsman and I design and build clocks and other Mission style items. This is an Arts & Crafts , Mission style clock designed and built by me. It is quartersawn white oak with mortise and tenon construction. It has an etched copper face and pendulum and features two ceramic scarab tiles by artist Lynette King. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

I do like the clock. I really like the Mission style items and furniture and it looks like you are right up there with the best. Post some more projects! What are the dimensions of the clock?

Very nice, I would like to know some more details about the clock. How did you finish it? The stain is great what did you use? Did you make dial? What movement did you use?

Beautiful - I'm a big fan of A&C/Mission.

Did you ebonize the pegs/exposed tenons, or use a different wood (Is the exposed tenon on the bottom real or memorex?)

Here's more detail on the clock..the joints are pinned with oak dowels that are sanded flush with the surface and the tenon on the front is a through tenon. I feel if you are going to put them in the design then they should be actual tenons. I use two different colors of water based analine dyes with 3 coats of lacquer {light sanding between each coat}. The last step is a coat of Briwax Dark Brown. The dark wax gives it more of an aged look to the finish.

I etch the copper face and then planish it with a hammer to give it a handmade feel. I also make the pendulum to match the face. Measures about 7.5"d x 14"h x 19"l.

Thanks for the nice comments! I appreciate it.
