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.

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"This is the first time I have assembled laser cut wood parts and I am most impressed with the fit of everything."

"Just a short note to praise the product that I bought from you a few months ago.  I bought the Ascent.  I got it finished a few days ago and it was a pleasure to put the clock together and it works great.  The instructions were excellent.  I will visit your website from time to time to see if you have any new clock kits."

AJ G.

"I ordered a Tranquility clock kit from you a couple weeks ago.  I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the kit itself, the documentation and especially say that whatever laser cutter you are using, and/or who is maintaining it, creates the cleanest cuts I've seen.  I got the clock together, adjusted it over a day and it's been running non-stop now for a week, very accurately and reliably. . . . I expect I'll be ordering another kit in the near future but just wanted to say thanks for putting out a great product."

"Hi Jeff, what a great company!  It is so seldom to find a outfit like yours that deals in such a honest and responsible manner."

Graham C.

"My Dad made your Ascent clock.  When I was a child he made many clocks, and he and a friend use to collect antique clocks.  Anyway when I come to visit him on the weekends I love to watch your Ascent clock run and hear the slow relaxing ticking.  He told me that he learned more about how clocks work building your clock than all the other clocks he has made."

Daniel A.

"The clock put together from the kit is working well and keeping time rather accurate despite our wet season's humidity and high temperatures at the moment.  All this is credit the design of your clocks."

Alf K.

"I am most impressed with the speed of delivery, and the quality of the kit."
