This exquisite Colonial Grandfather Clock was hand crafted to order out of Solid Cherry wood. Clients from Greenwich, Conn. commissioned this beautiful grandfather case, and were involved in its every detail. Below, please find one of the drafts drawn to help them see proportions, and the effects dimensions and design had on the case.

The case ended up measuring 89" high x 26" wide x 13 1/4" deep. It featured hand turned pillars in the top section, 1/4" thick beveled glass panes with a 1 1/2" border on the bevel, beveled glass doors in the upper and middle sections, cherry paneled back in the mid section, raised cherry panels in the base's front and sides, beveled glass sides in the upper and middle sections, Von Morris polished brass butt hinges with finials, polished solid brass knobs, and a Hermle 8-Day Cable-Driven 9-Tube Mechanical Movement . See details of this fine solid brass movement below.

A close up of the top section of the case to show in better detail the pillars, top crown & finial, the beveled glass sides & door, and silver & gold dial with painted moon dial. Note, the fluted corners, and the mortise joints were held together with 3/8" square cherry pegs.

The clients went with Hermle's very finest cable-driven, tubular chime movement. Manufactured to exacting quality stan­dards by Franz Hermle & Sohn --- the largest manufacturer of precision clock movements in the world. Each movement is constructed of solid brass, hardened steel pivots and brass bushings. No other movement offers better quality and features. The Hermle & Sohn Company manufactures a large vari­ety of movements we use in all our Grandfather Clocks and Tall Clocks.

A second draft of the clock. The final clock ended up slightly more ornate, but this scaled draft showed the dimensional proportions that were pleasing to the clients. Though it is common practice to use a computer program like AutoCAD to walk through this process, here at Delnero Fine Furniture Co., we still draw scaled drawings completely by hand. It has been our experience that time spent at the drafting table (whether it be a single clock draft, or plans for an entire set of kitchen cabinets) is when and where flaws are found, and great ideas are born.
