My wife and I have two great friends that live across the street from us. We traditionally exchange a gift of some sort with them at Christmas time. Whenever they are over at the house they always comment on how much they like the Anniversary Clock that I designed and built. This year I decided to build one for them. I hope they get as much enjoyment out of it as I did making it for them.
This clock was built using Black Walnut. All the trim was fabricated and the top was covered with Black Walnut veneer. The clock features Glass Panels on all four sides with a door on the back to allow easy access to the battery and setting the time.
I have been a weekend woodworker for over 25 years. Recently I have been designing and building clocks. I am a draftsman and in my spare time enjoy making blueprints and then building the clocks. With every design I try to improve my woodworking skills with something more challenging than the previous design.
