    This unusual clock, maker unknown at this point, has a pin drum that drives Westminster or Whitington chimes. Manufactured in 1930 and originally owned by a clock-maker, this is a firm favourite and will sound much better with re-leathered hammers.

      The grain in this clock is killer!
    2. magician1962 magician1962, 3 years ago
      Burr Walnut I think. It has a little damage and wear, but I'm not restoring this case, I like it how it is, has character. Thanks for the comment BryanBoo

      When I decide not to refinish a case, I usually use 0000 steel wool dipped in colored Briwax and buff the finish down, this product really brings out the patina in the wood.

      Good suggestion BryanBoo. 0000 steel wool is my most valuable tool, closely followed by beeswax. That's for cases at any rate. I find french polishing not only more original, but gives great job satisfaction and so easy to do.

      Paul, I call this the killer clock because of it's wood grain....I have to tell you that it looks like Koa wood (which Has very similar grain characters and "moves when hit different ways by the light)
    6. magician1962 magician1962, 3 years ago
      Hi Bryan, I call that effect 'shimmer' but that's not official :) Could be Koa, with a grain curved and curled I usually presume Burr Walnut, which was a quite common veneer for 1920's pianos. You may well be right, more than possible. We'll see, I changed my mind an am in the middle of case restoration on this clock. I'll never hang myself :)
