Grandfather clock

This is my latest project. This has the biggest challenge I have ever had. Lots mitres and very careful measuring and a lot of curves. On the whole I think it came out fairly well.

WOW. I would not have expected popular to come out looking that nice. In the past I have only used popular when I was going to paint the finished product.
