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.

"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."

"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 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!?

"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."

"I have completed the clock and it works very good.  I enjoyed making it.  Your plans were very good.  I didn't have any other problems after I spoke with you.  I am enjoying watching the clock."

"Your kit is fantastic, the instructions are clear and concise and with CNC laser cut precision is top notch.  Having built a number of various kits over the past 50 years I know what I speak of. . . . this was a fun and educational kit, I would fully endorse it to anyone without reserve."

"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."

"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."

"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."
