Mission Style Clock

Some of you know that I enjoy woodworking in my spare time. I find it’s a good way get my mind off work for a few hours. It gets me away from e-mail/web pages/phone/IM etc. for a while.

Mission Style ClockOne of my most recent projects was this mission style clock. The clock is about 2 feet tall and 14 inches wide. It can either mount on a wall or be used freestanding, as seen here.

This particular clock is special because it was donated to a benefit auction for a friend who was seriously injured in a car accident last winter. Pam – I miss your contagious smile and laughter!

    It is absolutely beautiful. You have a very neat hobby and one in which you have much talent.

    Very impressive looking woodwork. I’m more than a bit awed.

    William,

    Thanks for the comment! The plans and component kit came from Klockit (http://www.klockit.com/products/dept-34__sku-EEEEC.html). They also sell the parchment paper dial separately (Style F on http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-CCCVV.html)

    The plans are very good. Only major change I made was to change the shape of the top and bottom. I didn’t have a good way to make the curve, so I simply cut a chamfer on the top using the table saw. This was a lot cheaper than buying a special router bit, and I think it fits well with the mission style.

    With Klockit, I’ve build three of these mission style clocks, and everything has been good. However, I’ve had a lot of trouble with broken glass on their Dearborn style clock. (3 of 5 glass had broken glass when I was ready to assemble them.) I’m looking for another source for the decorative glass used in that model of clock.

    Brian
