Well the Tea Crate Grandfather Clock is finally finished. This has been my biggest project to date and I have learnt a lot building it and am really happy with how it has turned out.
Here are a few more detailed pictures...
Grandfather clock update...
The mouldings around the base have been completed and the majority of the case has been clad in vintage tea crates.
Still a lot of work to do!
Over a year ago I started building a traditional grandfather clock. I built the main clock case but could not decide how to finish it, so it stood in my workshop gathering dust (and there is a lot of dust in there).
I decided it would look great if I clad the clock case in old wooden Tea Crates, so started building up a collection over the last few months. Some of the crates are over 50 years old and are covered in great lettering.
The crates took quite a while to dismantle, they are held together with loads of nails.
Here are a few more pictures of the cladding process… still a long way to go!
Well here is the finished driftwood framed map coat rail (I need to think of a better name). The map is a 1961 Ordnance Survey map of North Norfolk, it shows the coast from Brancaster, through to Burnham Overy Staithe, Holkham, Wells-next-the-sea, Blakeney and Weybourne. The driftwood frame is made from pieces of pallet and smaller off cuts along the sides. It is finished off with 4 x matching double coat hooks.
