New England Tall Clock


Inspired by the designs of the well known Shaker clockmaker, Benjamin Youngs, this adaptation has been refined for the fine traditional interior as well as today’s contemporary home or office.  Scaled to fit comfortably in homes constructed today, the clock remains a full 7 feet in height and employs every feature of fine design and construction which has made country New England clocks famous to this day

Each clock is made by hand, from rough boards to the finished product, by me alone.  Using solid timbers, usually American cherry, walnut or curly maple, selected by hand for each clock, I employ traditional methods of joinery - such as pinned mortise and tenon joints of the upper door.  The front of each clock is made of one solid board, requiring exceptionally wide timbers which are becoming more rare and difficult to acquire.  The knob of the lower door is turned by hand on a lathe; all hardware is solid brass; each dial is hand screened with a hand painted logo of the maker.

The movement for this clock is incredible and made here in American by a true craftsman, David Lindow of Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania.  It is a traditional bell-strike movement, constructed of solid brass, weight driven in both time and strike, and strikes the hour.
