Shaker Tall Clock

Shaker Tall Clock

Chiefwoodworker
This Shaker tall clock was inspired by a clock designed and built by Benjamin Youngs, Sr., circa 1809, of the Watervliet, New York Shaker Village and held in a private collection. A photograph of the original can be seen in The Complete Book of Shaker Furniture by Timothy D. Rieman and Jean M. Burks, page 163. Slightly larger than the original (81" H x 20" W x 9 7/8" D) this piece measures 85" H x 21 5/8" W x 12 5/16" D. Other changes from the original are the simple footed base, an arched waist door to complement the arched hood and arched side windows in the hood. The finished piece can be seen in my Gallery at http://www.srww.com/shaker-tall-clock.htm. Scroll down to Shaker Tall Clock.
