Long Case Wall Clock
An impostor....A fake....not a real regulator, although the quartz movement will keep time accurately within 2 minutes a year.
The brass weight, pendulum bob, beat plaque and pulley are from vintage, authentic clocks, the hinges, door latches and door knob are from more contemporary sources but have "the look" of older brass. The wood is #1 poplar treated with Minwax pre-stain to prevent blotching, English Chestnut stain and then satin polyurethane. The door called for a 43" long piece and not available at BB stores so had to use Plexiglas. 36" is the largest glass available now. A fun project.
"It's just a hardened oz or two of metal, sharpened to a razor edge, spinning at 24,000 rpm.....what could go wrong?"
