Shadow Box

This is a shadow box that was built according to a customer's specifications. It is made of cottonwood and finished with shellac. The second photo shows the back of it. It can be removed by taking out the screws to allow putting things in the box. The glass is actually plexiglass. I thought about using real glass but decided against it because I have to ship this to another state. Another feature I done on this box is the finger joints at the corners. I think it added a nice touch to it. They wound up not being quite as tight as I'd like. The angles on the top proved to be a challenge to me. Overall I think it turned out pretty nice though.
I'm always open to doing custom projects. So, if any of you have something you need built of wood that you can't find elsewhere, contact me. Maybe I can build just what you need.

Worthington Hall Clock

This is the Worthington Hall Clock. It hangs on the wall and is twelve inches wide and thirty two inches tall. I have made this clock before. I wanted to do this one out of different material than clocks I've done before. A new challenge I guess. This one has a main body made out of oak. The trim is made of mahogany.
If you'd like to make one of these, just do an internet search for Wildwood Designs. The have many many clock patterns. All their clock patterns are very nice and come with full size patterns of any irregular shaped pieces. While they look beautiful, anyone who has a scroll saw and a little patience can build them. Any of them I make are for sale though. If you'd like to buy this one, just contact me.
