I had a customer bring an old gutted clock case from Yugoslavia that belonged to his grandma. He wanted the case converted into a jewelry case for his wife. He did not really have any ideas, so he told me to come up with something, and just do it, so I did!
The old clock case is oak, and it has a rounded bezel glass in the top middle of the door, I was very nervous having this around, if it broke, there would be no replacement for it.
The project was fun, and he and his wife were very happy.
