Zhenrui Cao, Vienna Wall Clock, finished in 11/8/2017,Fijian Mahogany,1.1x0.3metres (Student awards 2017)

Vienna Wall Clock, finished in 11/8/2017,Fijian mahogany,1.1 x 0.3metres I recreated the Vienna styled wall clock that originated in England in 19th century. I used the current technology to help me re-design and produce this piece. I used a domino machine to join the middle section of the clock and the spindles were done on the lathe, the drawer at the bottom was done by box joiner and the bottom base was cut on the panel saw and shaped with hand plane. The crown of the clock was turned on the lathe tool and then cut in half. All the small spindles were done on the lathe tool as well. I used wipe-on poly (gloss) as finish.
