  • My Clock

    Hello Everyone
    Well here it is my finished clock for the ready to assembled kit Evelyn gave me for Christmas. The kit is from Cherry Tree and made of pine the movement is a 4 Quarter Westminster. The finish is minwax sedona red with 4 coat of gloss shellac. It was a fairly easy kit to build I did make one change to the kit, the speaker for the clock has a mounting point on the back of the movement box it didn't sound that good, so I drilled a 2" hole on the top covered it with a piece of router mat (the black square in the second photo) I super glued the speaker on the under side. It made a big difference in the sound much deeper and richer. Any and all comments as welcome.

    Beautiful job, Dan. Pretty clever of Evelyn to give you a gift that she could enjoy, too.

          Very nicely done. That's a classic looking clock and I'm sure it looks great in your home.

              Dan - when you said 'pine' I thought 'ok, sure.' But DANG! I would say cherry for sure. It is beautiful! You did a wonderful job. Kudos to Evelyn for making such a good choice of gifts!

                    OK who did it, who did it, who moved my post. I went to off topic to see if there were any new replays and was gone. Thanks everyone for the really nice comments. It was a really fun project to build.

                          SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
