Shaker Tall Clock

Shaker tall clock, based on a piece from Benjamin Youngs of the Watervliet, NY colony, in curly maple with a shellac finish.

This piece is built out of stunning solid curly (tiger) maple. Dyed and oiled so the figure comes to life. The small door on the slender lower part is seamlessly cut from the same wide board, ensuring a perfect match. The door features hand-cut mortise and tenons and is molded on the inside edge. This elegant clock is good example of the perfect proportions that typify a shaker classic.
