In 2000, Jeff designed and built his first wooden gear clock as a gift for his clock-loving father-in-law, cutting all of the parts by hand with a scroll saw.
Additional clocks for other family members soon followed. When others expressed interest in the clocks, Jeff employed laser cutting to produce clocks in kit form. A website followed, along with the production of another clock design. Laser cutting was contracted out while packing and shipping were done in the Schierenbeck basement.
The business continued to grow. In 2007, a building was purchased and renovated, and operations were moved out of the house to the new shop. At the same time, a Kern CNC laser was purchased, and they began doing their own laser cutting.
Jeff has enjoyed the entire process of bringing these clocks to production. Now he and Marcie enjoy sharing their clocks in a way that allows others to experience the satisfaction of creating their own wooden gear clock. It has really been a joy meeting thousands of new friends with a common interest!
