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.

"Hi Jeff, we've finally put the clock together and it is in pride of place in our Garden Room getting lots of admiring comments from family and friends. We chose to paint the hands dark red to match in with our accent colour scheme. Thank you for your customer care."

"Thank you for your great clock."

"It's great to be in touch with someone that cares about what they do and is anxious to share their knowledge."

"I could see how cleverly you had designed the clock to be put together with the minimum of know-how and tools. Quite an achievement."

"The instruction manual was excellent - clear, comprehensive and accurate."

"Dear Jeff, am writing to let you know that I got the Ascent clock made and running from the kit I ordered from you.  It runs like a well oiled Swiss watch."

"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!"

"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’ve got to compliment you regarding the kit. What a difference it makes to have laser cut parts
from quality materials. A couple of years ago, I built a doll house from stamp cut cheap plywood.
What a nightmare. Thanks for taking the care to do it right."

"This is John's wife, Ruby.  John got into a bit of trouble about all the clocks that he winds every morning.  He was paying attention to them before he was even saying good morning to me.  Now I get a special kiss and a good morning before he winds his babies.  We are both enjoying the clocks."
