This is a project that we filmed and released on building a wallclock.
Wall Clock Project Episodes 1-8
These are real videos, go ahead and check them out.
In this project Paul shows how to pick, dimension and prepare wood for a project. He also shows how to make the housing-dado joint and a stub mortice and tenon joint. The edges of the top and bottom of the clock are softened using a handplane.
Here are site member's photos of their wallclocks
Shaker wall clock in eastern white pine from one of the big box stores. Finish is 4 coats of clear shellac and a coat of paste wax. Used hand tools exclusively, including making the cove from scratch.
Decided I needed a weather station in my workshop. Don’t know if the Shakers would approve though.
This is my interpretation on Pauls’ Theme. It is made from a board of “Clear” Pine from the local DIY. It is finished with foour coats of clear shellac

I used cherry. It was my first project using a plough plane. Lots of fun, and good for skill building.

Slight variation on the wall clock, I used a pendulum mechanism but failed to include the panel which I will have to practice separately.
