This cherry and pine clock case accommodates a modern quartz movement. This Shaker clock Philip C. Lowe built is a little smaller than the original he based it on, so it fits well in modern interiors. He assembled the case with typical Shaker construction: Mortises and wedged through-tenons join the carcase, and blind mortise and tenon joints connect the door frames. He explains how he designed the clock and the hand-detailed stock preparation he undertook. Lowe talks about planning the mortises and tenons, completing the face, and making the grooves for double back panels. He used mitered molding on the frame-and-panel doors. A detailed project plan shows how he installed shelves in the pendulum area. Side information addresses reproducing an aged finish.
