Craftsman Style Mantle Clock

Issue number 199 of Woodsmith magazine featured a craftsman style mantle clock that was the perfect project for practicing a number of woodworking techniques on a relatively small scale project.

The particularly nice Craftsman style mantle clock in Woodsmith’s issue number 199 provided a good opportunity to practice mortise and tenon joints, slanted cuts on the table saw, and a few cuts with the dado blade. While I have no fireplace mantle, nor the money to buy anything other than pine, this was still a fun project. To get the tenons to turn out right I had to make them twice. Overall a very fun and educational build.
