Woodworker: Alfred C. Etzel Jr.Etzel modeled this cherry tall clock after one he saw when visiting the Roosevelt estate in Hyde Park, N.Y. After a long search, he found plans in the library of the Columbia Clock Museum in Columbia, Pa. But they were metric, and he had to convert all the dimensions to inches. Standing 93 in. tall, the clock is 13 in. deep by 19 in. wide. Etzel finished the piece with dark brown mahogany gel stain and clear satin gel varnish. From Fine Woodworking #207
