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 finally got to the Ascent clock on my project list. I must admit that I was a little skeptical when I opened the kit that I would be able to put this together and that it would keep time. However, it is now hanging on the wall of my office and keeping perfect time. I am amazed at how precise your kit is and how easy it was to follow the instructions. I would recommend this kit to anyone with an interest in building their own clock. Your attention to detail is impressive. I received an education on how clocks work through building this clock as well as a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Although it currently hangs in my office, my wife wants to move it to the family room. That Jeff, is the biggest compliment you can receive...my wife actually wants one of my projects in the middle of the family room! Keep up the great work. I look forward to your future designs."
"Also, the plans and book for the Serpentine (I haven't seen the Ascent plans yet) are the best plans that I have ever obtained for any woodworking project. Congratulations on a fine product, it took a lot of time and work to develop an instruction manual and plans like you furnish. Too bad everyone doesn't have the same quality."
"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 love the clock. It arrived last week and I put it together over the weekend. I absolutely love it. With a lovely lazy tick tock and its keeping really good time."
"I have been meaning to mail you for some time now to thank you, firstly for creating such wonderful clocks, and secondly for your advice regarding constructing them. My Serpentine is proudly hung on the wall and has proved to be a talking point to anyone who visits the house. It is truly a work of art and mesmerizing. I often find myself sat staring at it and listening to the soft rhythmic sounds as it measures out the seconds. Thank you again, constructing this has been a wonderful project, and one which keeps bringing pleasure."
"I know you've seen lots of these [photos] but I'm really proud of the finished
product. I outlined the hands with a little almond paint to see them better in low
light. Yep, I'll be ordering another one before you know it! Jeff, you have a
"I just finished building the Ascent clock and I want to tell you it runs great. . . . Great kit! Keep up the good work."
"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."
"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."
"Just finished my tranquility. Enclosed are some pictures. This was my first major woodworking project, so it took me a year. I ended up making it from scratch from maple-veneered poplar plywood. It's been _such_ a gratifying experience. I'm spending at least 30 minutes a day staring at it and marveling. Thank you so much for sharing this with me."
