Salvaged a clock cabinet. Only had one piece of the base, and I couldn't match the profile, so I made a new base using a piece of crown molding. One of the pieces on the side was missing and since I'm not good at carving the design I just made two new plain pieces. The two finials were missing as well as the piece in the center at the top. The wood frame for the door was falling apart at all four joints. Couldn't match the wood for stain, so I just painted it. It is an old Ansonia Clock from
about 1862 according to the info on the brass frame of the clock part.
