This clock was made for a friend who is a surveyor. It is designed after a surveyor's scope. All wooden parts are made of walnut. The base scope, level and face mount were turned on my wood lathe. The rest I cut with my band saw. The dial is glass with a hinged bezel #27029 from your catalog. When we gave this to him, he was speechless and was amazed at how detailed it is. It has become a great conversation piece in his office.

The crest of the piece was created from an old oval mirror frame found in the "swamp shed" at the local transfer station. The pearl "moon" piece is from my grandmother's costume jewelry. The two "wolf" like animal carvings are from the handle tops of an old hand-made salad spoon & fork set, also found at the swamp shed. An antique brass door knob, brass clock gears, stained glass jewels, a rusted Christmas wreath frame, chain & lobster trap wood finish the top. The wood for the face & clock body structure was found in a "burn pile" at a local apple cider mill. The face door-frame is made with lobster trap wood and rusted steel banding. The yellow tin pieces in the upper corners of the door (and at the top of the pendulum door) are from an antique nutmeg tin. The face is made with rusted tin rings and hand-hammered copper hands. The second hand dial & hand are also made of copper. The small double-door battery box scene, just below the face, was made with old tablecloth weights found near the beach on the Florida Panhandle. A clock gear represents the sun. The pendulum door was made from an old window screen found in a local midwife's burn pile. Garden fencing replaces the screening. The oval tide clock is made with a copper face, brass eyelets and the rim of a coffee can for the side. The scrimshaw ship marking high tide was my father's cufflink. sea shells mark the hour for low tide. The pendulum itself is made from a gallon paint can lid, antique cast iron propeller decor, stainless glass jewel, spade point from a barn door hinge, lobster trap wood, telephone pole copper tag, and a brass clock gear. A piece of coral simulates the start of a wasp nest on the back wall. The base is trimmed in lobster trap wood, steel skid banding and old beach sand-erosion fencing...all found at Horseneck Beach.

I have made many gifts for people who have retired. When my brother in law retired from GM, he was a paint engineer. I could have came up with a robot that is set to spray cars. But I kept it simple. I turned a full size paint can out of red oak with a lid also. The brush is completely made from wood. The handle is cherry. The ferrel is made from walnut with maple inserts, the brissels are made from one piece of sugar pine. I mounted a wire wheel on my grinder and let the wheel cut the brissels and the base is cherry. And I used 1/8" dia. Brass rod for the handle. I used a Klockit fitup for the clock. Great project...also the lid can come off to hide some personal things in the paint can.

Sam had told me time and time again that he wished he had a time machine. "It would be so awesome to travel back to the 1920's, 30's, and 40's and just walk around" he said. Sam is my best friend and has been since high school. As soon as he was engaged, I knew I would have to do something special for him and his fiance. Since he asked me to be his best man, it made sense that I give the couple something that they could hand down to their children. I essentially wanted to make a family heirloom. With four weeks left before the wedding, I decided on that heirloom: a grandfather clock. Sam's heart lies in the early part of the twentieth century. He collects old tube radios, pre-war cameras, and any relic of that time that he can get his hands on. So I decided to design the clock around the Art Deco period, add a little twenty first century flair, and somehow capture a nostalgic feeling for a period that I have never lived through. The challenge began. Sam knew that I was up to something as I disappeared into my shop for weeks to finish the project. He kept asking me what in the world I was making him, and I simply answered "A time machine...," to which he just scoffed and assumed I was giving him a hard time. I used redwood burl veneer for the columns, and solid Honduras mahogany for the semi-circular dividers, back and sides. The wiring is period cloth wrapped around wiring, period plud, and a push button switch with dimmer on the backside of the clock. I decided on a Hermle 8-day Westminister movement and a parchment face (to allow light to show from behind the clock face for the "tube radio" look both from Klockit. I etched the glass door (fully functioning) with a monogram SHA (Sam & Andrea Hiser) and the wedding date. Needless to say, the couple loved the clock, and it sits in a very prominent place in their home constantly reminding them of their wedding day.

I work on the space shuttle program at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. I have been a woodworker for over three decades and I was recently introduced to clock building by my uncle in Ohio. He recommended Klockit for all me clock needs. This one-of-a-kind Space Shuttle mantel clock took one year to build and secure autographs from the STS-125 space shuttle crew (Hubble Repair). It has eighteen different woods. The walnut base is from my family farm in Ohio which enhanced an already meaningful project. The Space Shuttle crew appreciated this project immensely. I have it on my mantel at home for family and friends to enjoy. I used the #15586 white arabic insert. Thanks for your great company and helpful staff. Keep up the good work.

"I have completed 6 big clocks, all with the 8 day cable driven with moving moon dial, number 1305. These are large clocks—93 inches tall, 32 inches wide, and 20 inches deep. These are for large houses with vaulted ceilings.
I have placed these clocks in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and wild Sheep Foundation auctions held at their national conventions. They have sold for an average of $13,000 each. One sold $30,000 at Albuquerque, NM.
I also designed a case for the Gift wood gear clock. This clock sold for $5,000 at the Elk Foundation convention in Reno, NV this past February.
More than one half of the proceeds from these sales are donated for the benefit of wild life and their habitat.
I do two types of furniture. Rustic made from pine and spruce woods and Traditional furniture made from hardwoods such as walnut, mahogany, rose wood, and oak for these shows."

Jessica Poeppelman
2008 Best Floor Clock

Fort Loramie, OH

"Hello. I am Jessica Poeppelman and am seventeen years old. This was my largest wood project. At the beginning of the 2007-2008 school year, I decided I wanted to build a grandfather clock. When looking for different ideas, I saw the Samuel Curio Floor Clock Kit in one of our magazines. However the price for the entire kit seemed a little too much. I decided to build the clock based entirely off the picture and purchase only the components. The only parts I bought included the Hermle triple chime movement, face, pendulum, and chain-driven shell set.
On this clock, I used red oak wood and then stained it in golden oak. I had ┬╝” mirrors installed in the back along with 1/8” glass and six shelves. The finished size was 82x38”x16”.
This project was very difficult for many reasons. First, I had never built a clock of any sort before, so this was my first attempt. In addition, because I was basing everything off a picture, without any plans to tell me the next step. Nevertheless, I hope this clock will always be a family heirloom. "

"It is my own design and uses the chiming pendulum movement #12243 and the hinged dial #27025. I used my wood. I am 93 years of age and have 5 children and have made each of them a wall clock and your quartz cuckoo clock. #12227. Of course I made one for myself too. I have made 28 clocks in all using Klockit components. Some were gifts at weddings. As you can see, I am a satisfied customer."

Bruce and Charlotte Vincent
2008 Best Wall Clock

Sacramento, CA
Click to view
"Description: The clock consists of a half of a hard shelled canteen gourd mounted on a birdseye maple back board surrounded by a segmented red oak frame. The movement is a key wound pendulum movement, Klockit item # 13035.

Process: The clock is a collaboration of Bruce & Charlotte Vincent. Not he BCV on the clock face. Bruce is a life long hobbyist. Charlotte is a well known gourd artist. The art work is first burned into the surface using wood burning tool. The color shading is then added using a variety of wood stains. The finish is a clear sealer. The movement is installed using wood blocks glued to the inside of a gourd shell. Due to the gourd shell thickness and depth it was necessary to lengthen the hands shafts using brass tubing. This also made it necessary to lengthen the hands from a sheet of brass. The pendulum length had to be determined through a trial process because of the difference in weight distribution of wood compared to the brass pendulum that came with the movement. A brass collar at the top of the pendulum provides the hook that attaches to the movement. A threaded brass rod with a threaded wooden knob at the bottom of the pendulum provides the regulator adjustment. The key shaft also had to be lengthened using brass tubing and a carved oak grip was added with a mouse face on one side and a flower on the other. The key sits in a holder at the top of the frame.

2007 Mantel Clock Winner
Bellevue, WA


"The bracket clock was inspired by photos of an arch dial bracket clock dating back to the mid 1700s. I took the proportions and sized the clock to my liking. Originally I fitted the case with a quartz movement but later felt a mechanical movement would be more suitable and fitted the triple-chime Hermle movement and new dial face.
I enjoy creating my projects from scratch and your products and service have always support my efforts."
