This is the project I've wanted to make since high school shop class some,,, well,, all those years ago!!
Knotty pine from the local lumber yard. This is very good wood. I picked up 1x12x10 & ripped 2 1/2" off each board edge to get the 1/4 sawn for the frames. Made up some raised panels for the bottom case. Built a jig for the router to make evenly spaced holes for shelf pins on each side for some glass shelves. The little bit of trim you see I made on the router table. Still have the bonnet to build & a lot of sanding & finish work but so far I'm liking what I've got here!!
Sorry I haven't been keeping you all up to date on this. I need to get better pics.
It's all done. Aged Maple Gel stain & one coat of Amber shellac plus 2 coats of clear shellac over that.
Atomic movement with no chimes bells or whistles. I preferred the older looking oval clock face to the round ones. To me it allowed me to slim the bonnet & stretch it a little taller. The shape on the door rails & the waist rails duplicate the feet.
As you can see I installed a mirror in the back of the waist & some glass shelves for Diane's glass ware.
Lights off in the room & the 3 LED puck light lit shining down on the colored glass.
