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 would just like to say that your plans and instructions for your Serpentine clock were great. I built the clock totally from the plans and it is running like a clock 😉 This was the first wooden gear clock I ever built as well as the first scroll saw project I ever done. . . . I would love to build another one of your designs."

"I've completed the builds of the Tranquility and Serpentine now and I'm extremely happy with the result. They are beautiful pieces and have brought joy into my household and workplace. As a very experienced kit builder, I found the overall quality of parts and clarity of instructions to be outstanding."

"I’m very happy with this superb product.  I love that you can make almost all the parts from the plywood itself. Locking washers, too. Wow – very creative. And the other thing that amazed me is the smaller holes that have little cores that pop out. This is such a fascinating use of the technology (CAD-CAM and laser cutter). The gear teeth are sized and shaped perfectly and the items all glue together very well. . . . Thanks for making such a wonderful invention and making it so available at a reasonable price. This clock’s quality exceeded my expectations by a large amount."

"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!?

"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."

"Our fantastic clock is now hanging in our family room where everyone can enjoy it, and the sound of it clicking is most relaxing.  My husband is especially proud of it because it was such a challenge for him.  Thanks for your great clock!"
