Fascinating ChallengeI spent a summer building this clock which now stands tall in my living room. The project required quite a bit of detective work. I couldn't find a brass face of the size required so I had a paper one custom drawn. Instead of mahogany I used walnut. Then I added cherry stain which resulted in what I feel is a lovely reddish tone. I didn't want modern glass so I purchased antique wavy glass that I had cut to proper size. Although this is a very tall clock it is fairly shallow. So to fit the clock works that I had on hand, I had to shave the internal mounting blocks to squeeze my works in. I was surprised to find the brass spears and column pieces are still available. If you're willing to work slowly and carefully, and do your research for the needed components, you could end up with a magnificent major furniture piece that could last for generations.
