Grandfather Clock

The Grandfather Clock is a formidable time piece. Standing 76 7/8” tall, 28 1/8” wide, and 13 1/2” deep, this clock will be the showpiece of any room it resides in.

The through tenon construction is beautiful and sturdy and the dark brown finish gives the project a warm and handsome appearance.
