I built this Grandfather clock back in 1994, the only tools I had then were a table saw, a router, and a lot of cheap sand paper. I made the curved cuts on the band saw at the local high school wood shop (they still had them back then). One thing I will not forget about the build was the router bit slipping while doing the round over on the door, this ruined the door and I had to make a second one.

Really beautiful Tim and a great thing, it will be handed down for generations. Just knowing that is priceless.

This really is a great-looking clock. Nice work and an heirloom over which to fight!
