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.

"I ordered the Ascent clock kit a few weeks ago, and I thought I should write to thank you.  I have just gotten the clock working (I'm still fiddling with the adjustments), and I have thoroughly enjoyed putting it together and getting it working.  I am fascinated by mechanical clocks and have always wanted to build one, but being not sort of metal or wood-worker, I never thought to do it.  Your kit was absolutely ideal.  The instructions were very easy to follow, and I was able to get the clock working very quickly and with very little fuss.  Also, I have to say the design itself is wonderful.  As I was putting various pieces together, I enjoyed realizing how elegantly you used some very basic parts to make things work.  There were several 'oh!' moments.  If someone had said I could make a clock out of plywood, a couple of dowels, and some various oddments, I wouldn't have believed them.  Anyway, I just wanted to say I have enjoyed this very much and now have a lovely new clock in my house.  Thanks for selling these kits!?

"Thank you for designing the Ascent clock and giving all of us the opportunity to assemble such a excellent timepiece!  I just finished assembling the clock and I must say, it looks beautiful.  I consider it a piece of artwork."

"I just wanted to send a picture of my completed clock.  It was a great experience building and customizing the clock."

"Altogether this has given me an enormous amount of fun and created a fascinating object on a wall where it fits in perfectly.  It has made me look at all clocks with great interest.  Thanks for providing the inspiration."

"Just a line to say thanks for a very prompt and safe delivery of a marvelous project.  I completed my Serpentine kit last week and it has been running extremely well after a few little tweaks on the wall since then.  Had some excellent comments from people who've seen it too.  Only down side was the extra sixty dollars to pay at UK customs (but that's UK taxes for you) but like I say, it's such a brilliant clock/mechanical piece of art and joy to build, it was well worth it!  We'll definitely keep watching your web site for further developments/new products."

"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, "

"Finished the Tranquility clock kit. It's running on a little over three pounds of weight. Took about two and a half days to build. Wound up with an extra set washer but it's running great 🙂 Really enjoyed building the kit. Watching it run is very peaceful. Was surprised how quietly it operates. Truly an amazing device. The frame looks like a musical note. My girl friend thinks it's awesome as well. . . I can't imagine what kind of mind and talent it takes to design and create these clocks but thank you for sharing them. It's a blessing that people like you share your creations for the enjoyment of others."
