Project Information

New Yankee workshop plan. I've made five of these all out of walnut. Basic box design with some interesting detail work. The plans are not 100% complete, however if you watch Norm first it's pretty easy. I found buying brass hardware makes for a more finished project. I finished it with medium walnut danish oil, wipe on, wait 15 minutes, wipe off excess, repeat. Really easy with great results. Glass came from Lowes, installed with clear silicone.

I've made the same design in Oak from the Glen Huey book - pretty. I love the face you used.

Very nice work. Welcome to LJ. If you want to get your pics up right, just crop it on you PC before posting. Someone told me that trick and it works.

I hope we see more work from you in the future.

Very nice work; I always liked that design.

Did you use a quartz or windup movement?

Steve,
Quartz movement from klockit, hands from them too. Changing the battery is a bit difficult, can't see what you're doing, it's all feel. Have to make sure you have the battery the correct way.
