Testimonials

One of the most rewarding aspects of designing and producing our clock kits and plans is hearing from you, our customer.
It means a lot to us to know that you have enjoyed making your wooden gear clock.
We really appreciate it when our customers take the time to share their thoughts with us.

"The clock looks great and I've had a great time."

"The clock is wonderful. . . . My 13 year old is fascinated with the clock - which was part of the reason for doing this project.  I am totally amazed that the clock actually works.  It is an elegant design.  It is wonderful that in this age of digital brute force dumned down technology - we are still able to have an elegant, useful mechanical device - thanks to your artestry, skill and hard work.  It is really your clock - and it is a fine achievement, elegant yet simple enough for the average person to assemble."

"The clock has been working perfectly for the past 3-4 days . . . This was a really fun project!  I'll post a youtube video of my finished clock with a description of how much I enjoyed putting it together with a link to your site.  Thank you for providing such a great project and thank you for all the tech support along the way!"

"I just wanted to thank you for making your clock plans available. . . . I decided to attempt my first wooden clock. I was very much taken with the elegance of your Tranquilty clock and a deciding factor between different designs was that it would run for 24 Hours plus on a single ‘wind’. . . . Thanks to your design the clock went together easily, adjustment of pallet entry was simple and the clock was adjusted to come ‘on beat’ very quickly. . . .The clock has been running beautifully for a few weeks now.  How appropriate that you named the design Tranquility for this clock does not ‘tick tock’ but just makes the gentlest of sounds as the pallets return to their stops. I had great fun building it and hoped that I would end up with an elegant piece of kinetic art. That has happened, and it is difficult to pass by it in the hall without stopping for a moment to watch the grasshopper motion, but I confess that I was not expecting it to keep time so accurately. As mentioned on the video clip it is currently within a minute over a 24 hour period!"

"My friend received his clock and he was so happy it was really worth the effort .Thank you so much I understand he started to make it and couldn't stop until he completed the task. Once again thank you for making him happy and for the excellent service from yourself."

"I want to thank you for the Serpentine Clock. It was given to me as a gift by my best friend. He ordered it for my birthday. It is the coolest gift I have ever received, and apparently, designed/created by you. I had SO MUCH FUN building it, I can not begin to tell you! Moreover, I actually got it to work. The parts were cut perfectly and the directions really are "fool-proof,". . . It actually DOES keep good time as well, just as advertised! Anyhow, I am interested in more wooden-gear clocks at this point. I LOVE the serpentine. . . . Your new customer for life, "

"Just finished the Legacy Clock and am in the process of adjusting the accuracy.  What a great clock and project!  The precision of the parts were outstanding and I enjoyed it from start to finish."

"Just wanted to drop you a mail, to say thanks for the plans and manual - both excellent, and I very much enjoyed cutting and building this clock.  This is my first ever scroll saw project, and first ever time building a clock, and because it went so well, due to your plans being so excellent, I've been bitten by the bug, and want to do another!"

Dan M.

"Thanx!!!  For an awesome and really fun kit!!!.  I ordered the Legacy some time ago and finished it about two weeks ago.  Everything went well and the few times I had some minor issue these always turned out to be MY impatience and NOT an error in the really very excellent manual you provide with the kit.  I really have to commend you on the manual, it's just great. . . The clock has been mounted and running for some time now.  It keeps pretty good time as well."

"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."
