Default Clock

Having not made something for my Daughter in Colorado yet, I decided on making a clock. It's made from cherry with a walnut face and a Seiko quartz chiming movement. Finished with Minwax Tung oil. I'm still shopping for buttons for the hours.

During the building phase, I changed the plans to incorporate glass in front of the face to protect it, hence the skip in the photos, and the reason for the test fit not being as it was built. The top is glued on and the bottom is attached with #6x1" screws.

I'm not opting for numbers but just 3 buttons for 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.
Here's a pic of the back of it.

Thanks Bob. A fun project. I still have to decide what I'm going to cover the back with. Probably picture frame cardboard with a screened hole so it can still be heard. The Westminster chime sounds great.

Mike, when I retired in 2000, I went around the $2.00 shops and bought quite a collection of clocks for between $2.00 and $8.00, including about ten of these shown below for $5.00 each, all of which kept perfect time. I removed the glass, card dial, hands and movements and made new cases, all different and they were well received as presents. I still have a couple of these left and one day will get around to making cases.
You're fine specimen reminded me of the above.

Neat idea harry. I will have to keep an eye out for some of those cheapies. I wish I had photos of the one clock i have made. It's buried in the back room. It didn't make it back to the living room after the remodel. I plan on making a new version of it soon. It used one of those bezels with the glass door that opens up. Has a nice electronic musical movement in it.
