Woodworker: David S. BeachWhen designing this curly maple tall clock (12 in. deep by 21 in. wide by 94 in. tall), Beach and his client took elements from clocks found in The Willard House and Clock Museum and the Willard Family Clockmakers, by Roger Robinson and Herschel Burt (NAWCC, 1996). The Willards were the premier clock-making family in New England from 1766 to 1870. The clock held many technical challenges, but Beach said he found the arched hood molding to be the most difficult part. The finish is tung oil and shellac. The movement is by David Lindow, the hardware is from Londonderry Brasses, and the dial painting is by Kathi Edwards. From Fine Woodworking #220
