il_fullxfull-1079378373_qml9This new craftsman style mantle clock is almost 18″ high, and features a solid copper etched clock face. This piece also features a large selection of fine woods, including cherry, walnut, walnut burl, ebony and paduak. I designed this piece.

The tile inset is by the world famous Motawi tile works.

The clock movement is a standard battery operated quartz mechanism – but can be upgraded. Comes with brass pendulum.

Curved Panel Small Clock

Craftsman clockAs per my previous post, I made a small clock with curved two panel sides, as a technical challenge. It’s now in my stable of clocks for sale.

I’m happy with the results; the curved sides add a unique flair you don’t see a lot in clocks – especially Mission or Craftsman style clocks (hence the name of my shop – NEW Mission Workshop).

The hardest part was of course the curved panel sides, but I made a jig for a router that makes pretty quick work of those side panels. Essentially, the router rides over a long crescent; the I rip the crescent down the middle, and voila! I have the two sides of the clock. That’s not quite the whole deal, it’s a bit complicated to explain in this blog, but that’s the gist. The paper clock face was my design as well; it’s done on archival quality paper, very thick, and then sprayed multiple times with poly to protect it.

All in all, I nice technical challenge with a nice result.

Oh, the name of it? Childwold. It’s a very small blip of a hamlet in the Adirondack mountains, near to our summer cottage, and the name just came to mind for this piece.

You can see a close up of the side in this shot. It’s maple and cherry. You’ll note I didn’t put a “rail” on the bottom of the curved panel to firm up that panel look; I tried it, but it just didn’t look right to me.

Smaller Mission Style Clocks

Mission clockThe gauntlet has been thrown down before me. I was visiting with my local coffee shop that displays my work for sale, and was made aware of an event they are planning in December – bottom line, I need to get some cheaper product in there for that event, as people will be looking for things for Christmas!

The parameters:

• Easy to make, yet looks complicated to make.

• Stylish, in the mission or new mission way.

• Low price point, and hopefully high profit margin.

So now I basically have to come with a design like you see here that I can crank out quickly en masse, that will have a low price point and people can’t resist.

Sketchup, are you ready!?
