Add the finish hardware and movement

1 Stain and/or finish the case, door, back panel, knob, and glass stops as desired. (We left ours unstained, and applied three coats of satin polyurethane.)

2 Install the glass and the glass stops. (See Drawing 3a for reference.) Screw the clock face to the plywood panel (F).

3 Attach the hinges to the front edge of the right-hand side piece (A), where shown on Drawing 3. Then, fasten the hinges to the door stile. When positioning the door for attaching the hinges, allow a i/W' gap between the clock case and the top and bottom of the door.

4 Insert the magnetic catches into the previously drilled holes, and mark their mating locations on the back face of the door stile. Drill a pair of mounting holes in the back face of the door, and drive the screws, which act as strike plates.

5 Brad the back panel (G) into the rabbet in the clock back.

6 Stick the clock shaft through the hole in the plywood panel, and fasten the movement (minus the pendulum) to the panel and clock face with the external-

threaded nut. Add the hands to the clock shaft. Hang the clock on the wall (or a Shaker peg, as shown in the opening photographs). Add the pendulum and battery, and set the time. ♦
