Decision reached: in keeping with the spirit of the clock that insired this project, we will build a filler panel to close in the excess open space and focus ones' attention on the pendulum.
Wednesday, March 24
I need feedback from Harold as to whether this would be too much glass in front or would be OK. If this would be too "open" I'll need to make a large filler panel, rabbet it into the door frame and cut out the middle part where I'll install the beveled edge glass. Before I glue this frame together, I need to cut a glass rabbet and spline the miters, or cut a larger rabbet for the filler panel. So, work on this part will stop until I get his decision on this. But I can work on the head cabinet.
