All the way from Boston, this is the oak & walnut grandfather clock that my Grampie built using Mason & Sullivan parts, now in my Los Angeles home. I don't know how big of a fan of taxidermy bobcats he was (as you can see he preferred to keep it bobcat free), but I know he would like the addition of the bobcat because I do. That's just how he was. He liked everything I did.
Here you can see my grandfather with the second of three grandfather clocks he built, this one was mahogany and a little smaller it stayed in the front room, next to the secretary he built. fyi~ he even wood paneled all the walls! He sure loved his wood!
