I have always wanted to build a wooden gear clock.
This winter, I took the plunge, sort of. I decided that I would make a clock from a kit, using a kit would enable me to see what was involved in a project of this sort. Also it would act as a lesson in clock building, I would learn which pieces demanded hyper critical accuracy and what parts allowed for artistic licence. Also the kit almost insures success and being cautiously cheap I wasn't prepared to send money on something that might end up finished but not working.
As is so often the case now I turned to the Internet, there I found products, reviews and all sorts of information provided by companies and consumers. Wooden Gear Clocks got very positive reviews and I can see why, I was provided with excellent service, fast shipping and a product that looked great when I opened the box. The kit arrived promptly from the United States and was about $235.00 Cdn after shipping, taxes and exchange.
Last evening I began the assembly process, I am following the instructions to the letter, including the ideas on what colours to stain which parts.
I will keep you posted on the progress.
