Clock Plans

This do-it-all-yourself option is suited for someone with some scroll saw experience and who would enjoy cutting the parts from the supplied patterns. The necessary hardware is included, but you supply the wood.

Material and Gears

You can supplement the Plan and Hardware set with all of the wood and dowel needed to make your clock. Also, you can add the pre-cut gears to eliminate the most challenging of the scroll saw cutting.

"My Dad made your Ascent clock. When I was a child he made many clocks, and he and a friend use to collect antique clocks. Anyway when I come to visit him on the weekends I love to watch your Ascent clock run and hear the slow relaxing ticking. He told me that he learned more about how clocks work building your clock than all the other clocks he has made."
Daniel A.

-Matthew F.

"Your kit is fantastic, the instructions are clear and concise and with CNC laser cut precision is top notch.  Having built a number of various kits over the past 50 years I know what I speak of. . . . this was a fun and educational kit, I would fully endorse it to anyone without reserve."

"I built the Ascent clock and it's working great so far. . . . This was my first wood-working project since high school (20 years ago!).  It was pretty easy and straightforward for a person with limited experience and very minimal tools in the garage.  Thanks for making such a fun clock kit that works so well!"
-Craig B.

"This project has been so fun and so cool, and I would have thought it was so far outside of my ability. "
