    This is an Arthur Pequegnat Bedford mantel clock that I acquired recently. It was not running but it was a simple fix, a broken click spring on the time side.

    However, the condition of the case was the real issue. The clock had fallen at some point in its life, consequently, all the joints were split open. Clamping and gluing took some time. I had no idea what veneer it was till I stripped away all the dirt and grime. I finished with one coat of red oak stain and with 6 coats of Minwax PolyWipe (sanding between coats) to restore the original finish.

    Wow! Nice work - you'd never guess it was the same clock.
