The Birmingham Clock

I enjoy building clocks very much. This is the first one I've done in a long while, and as usual, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is made of cottonwood and mahogany and finished with shellac. It's hard to tell from the photos, but this wall hanging clock is sixteen inches wide and thirty seven inches tall. That is large for a wall hanger.
The plans for this one came from the Berry Basket Collection. You can purchase the plans here if you'd like to build it yourself. The name of the clock is The Birmingham Clock. According to the plans, it is supposed to have a clock insert in it. However, I always like to use simple clock movements and design my own wooden faces, as I done on this one.


  1. Nice work William. I am glad you are doing what you love.

  2. Thank you Dave.
    I started work today on a new clock.
    This one is a complicated one though with a lot of extremely fine detail and compound angles. You know I like a challenge. So I can't guarantee it will ever see the light of day completed. We will see.
