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 just finished building the Ascent clock and I want to tell you it runs great. . . . Great kit!  Keep up the good work."

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

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

"I just wanted to drop a line and say the clock is great!  The laser cutting is absolutely incredible.  Awesome!!  The instructions were very clear and easy to understand.  At first I was wondering if it wasn't a notch above my abilities, but I very carefully read the book several times before starting so I was familiar with the pieces.  I can spend hours watching it.  I would rather look at it than watch TV."

"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 am really amazed, I did not think that I could ever get a working clock from all wood, but both clocks [Ascent and Serpentine] run great and keep better time than any wind-up clock that I ever had.  Congratulations again on great plans and a lot of work going into the design."

"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 Ascent clock kit arrived about a week ago.  Very nice kit.  I enjoyed building it."

Larry H.

"This project has been so fun and so cool, and I would have thought it was so far outside of my ability. "

Christy H.

"I built the Ascent clock and it's working great so far. . . . This was my first wood-working project since high school (20 years ago!).  It was pretty easy and straightforward for a person with limited experience and very minimal tools in the garage.  Thanks for making such a fun clock kit that works so well!"
