Evan’s Ribbon Mahogany Wall Clock

Viewer Project - By Evan Court from Concord, NH
Added on April 16, 2013

As a student at NBSS I needed a project for my first summer off. I work part time for one of the New Hampshire furniture masters, but I still needed something interesting to keep my skills up, other then what I am doing at work.

I chose this clock as my first project. It is 100 percent my own design. The inspiration is drawn from my love for period furniture and also from details I saw in Richard Oedel (My boss) and Garret Hacks work. The hole case is hand dovetailed construction with a shiplap back. The door is wrapped in Holly and the banding is Ebony and Holly. I finished it with around 80 coats of padded super blonde Shellac to help seal and shine the piece. I then added 3 coats of Waterlox original to help protect it. It was rubbed out with deluxing compound.
