If a grandfather clock with a traditional movement doesn’t fit your needs. Well, with a few easy modifications, the clock case can be transformed into the glass-sided display case.

You'll start by putting together the two frames that form the front and back of the tall case. The distinctive feature here is the gentle, top-to-bottom taper of the frames. This look is created by simply trimming the outside edges of the stiles, so you’ll find it doesn’t really complicate the construction.

The overall dimensions are 27" W x 19-1/2" D x 77-3/4" H. This project appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 162.
