Is there anything more soothing than the subtle sound of a tall clock’s steady movement? The ocean maybe, but try getting that in your living room. Besides, a tall clock is one of those heirloom pieces of furniture that end up getting passed down through the generations. And these plans, by Robert Treanor, utilize standard lumberyard material – 1×12’s, 1×10’s, and 1×8’s. So after a trip to the lumberyard you’ll be ready to get started without having to dimension your materials.
The Shaker clock, based on an early 19th century design, is unadorned and classic in form. The case joinery is as uncomplicated as the design. The sides are glued and nailed into rabbets cut in the case front. The back is screwed on, and the case is joined to the base with dowels.
The painted finish of this clock is simple and authentic, but you can also use hardwood with a clear finish.

Yeah I hear Use! Bloody bad Link! It let me download the free one through on my phone, not onto the tablet, so then I had to email myself so I could then save it onto my Samsung tablet, I signed up with them ordered the full version of one of the plans and have not been able to download it to my phone or the Tablet! Wtf
It Works just fine, CLICK the start download,NEXT PAGE click the PDF Download. When the PDF loads,Click SAVE. It took about 15 sec. Good luck :)
Tried all kinds of ways to download plan set but no luck.
Hi Folks, I had the same trouble downloading the plans but as one man has already spoken, I will agree it works. Click on the sliver of the picture on the left and it will begin to download. It is a slow download so be patient. 1.7 MB and it is in PDF format. Shaker plans are not my cup of tea but I had to prove that it works since it was difficult.
Is there supposed to be a cutting list here to? If so where can I find it?
Hope this helps. I had trouble downloading because I was only getting half a page, but I finally clicked on the sliver of a picture and the download adobe came up.
1. Click the CLICK HERE link above. It loads another page that kind of looks the same.
2. On the newly loaded page, look for the link that says "View as PDF," and click on that. That downloads a PDF version of the article into your browser.
3. Click "Save" in your browser, and voila! You have a printable PDF of the plans.

How can I get a copy if I can't down load it either? Carl
I can't get it to download either.
I built this clock last spring. It's a good/fun project and the clock looks great in my living room.
This is great - I had no problem downloading this article and several others. Thanks!
Too bad that it does not download.
