This Grandfather clock finishes out at seven feet tall, and is a beautiful piece. I built mine using ash lumber and English Chestnut stain, and many coats of polyurethane varnish. Once complete, I decided to take it another step and had the bottom door glass etched to coordinate with the design on the face of the clock itself. As an afterthought, we had our family name etched into the bottom of the door as well. This project is one I have long wanted to do, and although I put in many hours, now that it is complete, I have the satisfaction of having created a NEW family heirloom.
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
