I have spent almost five months on this masterpiece grandfather clock. It is 7'6" Tall x 3' wide x 16" deep. One solid rock with a king stone carves in top center weighs a massive 1,300 lbs! Includes the Kieninger 8 day 9 tube movement. "The standard by which all other movements are measured" you're missing out! You may never know its massiveness in comparison to all others without seeing it in person. I have done my very best to carry off the name "Almost Gold".

This is my version of a table top/mantel clock for your consideration. For the movement, I used the bell strike skeleton with white dial. The base is 10 inches in diameter and 5/8 inch thick. Both base and top ring are African Mahogany with 2 coats of wild cherry stain and 4 coats of a satin top coat. Between the base and top ring I used smoked acrylic about 2 inches high. For the seat board on the top ring I used clear acrylic 6 inches in diameter. Both pieces of acrylic have been sanded to give them a frosted look. 5 low voltage lamps (12 volts, 2 watts each) are located between the base and top ring/seat board. Everything sets on 6 adjustable feet and is topped with a glass dome 8 inch diameter and 10 inch tall.

My first career was one of a watchmaker in Switzerland. While I moved up in the company over 20 years at Longnines, working many years as a timekeeper for the company, you never lose the memories and enjoyment of working with the actual timepieces. Now being retired for some years from the business world, I have been able to spend more time on my artwork. I work with many exotic woods for my sculptures, but enjoy the look & feel of zebrawood. With the love of wood sculpture and clocks, I have enjoyed using the pieces that I buy through Klockit to make unusual small clocks and watches for family and friends.

I made this for a friend who's hobby is photography designed this clock like a 50's newspaper mans camera. The clock face is a 7 1/2" dia insert clock. I used different hardwoods for all the components for this clock. The bellows are made from cherry. The box is red oak. I used walnut for some of the details. This is my idea, I did not use a photo of this clock just by memory. I guess you could make a smaller version of this and put it on your desk. I use to make a lot of retirement trophies for a lot of people at Ford Motor Co. I would see what a person did and made them a retirement gift they would keep forever.

It took me more than 3 years to build this clock. I'm a graduate and die hard fan of the University of Texas at Austin. When I decided to build a scale model of the The University's famous tower, I created plans from dozens of photographs. Those plans changed and evolved over 3 years. Thanks to Klockit, I found the components I needed. I used 4, 1" clock inserts for each side of the tower, a candelabra socket and switch for the tower light, various lamp hardware to light the tower windows, and the Sanyo 18 note music movement so that the bell tower could play the "Eyes of Texas". It stands 28" tall and is made of Texas red oak and burled walnut. The drawer pull is a replica of the front door handle of the Texas State Capitol building. Flick a switch for the tower night light. Flick it again and the Tower windows will light up any room! I'd like to thank Klockit for making the materials available and I'd like to thank my late grandfather, Barney Mozley for inspiring me over the years with his woodworking skills.

I saw the Gold Quartz Anniversary Movement, when it was introduced as a new product in the Klockit catalog. I was instantly inspired to design a clock around the movement. I have been a weekend woodworker for over 25 years. Recently I have been designing and building clocks. I am a draftsman and in my spare time enjoy making blueprints and then building the clocks. With every design I try to improve my woodworking skills with something more challenging than the previous design. This clock was built using Black Walnut. All the trim was fabricated and the top was covered with Black Walnut veneer. The clock features Glass panels on all four sides with a door on the back to allow easy access to the battery and setting the time.

Inspiration for this project came about after a copy of Century of Fine Carriage Clocks was given to me by Joseph Fanelli, author and well known authority of fine timepieces. Of all the fine clocks featured in his beautiful collection, number 55, a French Carriage Clock took my breather away. Since I could never afford to buy this clock, with the help of Klockit, I decided to make it out of my favorite wood, red oak. Thank you Klockit, and thank you Joe Fanelli. The late nineteenth century design of this Architectural case is wrapped around Klockit's recently regretful discontinued Hermle multifunctional day/date, month & moonphase prestigious quartz clock. I purchased all of the remaining clocks because I knew they were an eye catcher and a fine instrument. Over the last two years, I have built three of these carriage clocks only to be persuaded to let them go to someone who visited our home and fell in love with the clock. I am a believer that if your give something that you made to someone that you love, and they truly love and appreciate the gift, then we are both rewarded. Having said that, and considering my late years, and the Hermle discontinuation, this third and last creation is dedicated to my wife who has shown a strong bonding due to sacrifices during the time consuming construction period. The French Carriage Clock is a 30 day construction with over 140 individual pieces, has eight free standing columns with five stepped sections between the base and dial with an arched overhead frame about the multifunctional.

I have 6 grandchildren, aging from 25-8, and have 2 great grandsons - 9 & 7. I decided to build each of them a clock for Christmas in 2009. Each of them alike. I used quartz movements, dials, & antique handles purchased from Klockit. The cases I made in my shop of red oak, all stained in walnut finish. Doors are hinged, and I used Plexiglas on the fronts instead of glass - little guys can be hard on some things. The clocks now reside in Iowa, Texas, Colorado, and South Carolina.

This is my rendition of "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" clock. The clock is made up with your Recordable Dual Chime, Anniversary Clock Pendulum Movement, 4 1/8" Styrene dial, Front Turned Columns, and decorated with a Brass nameplate inscribed with "Pied Piper of Hamelin". The 10 second recording time of the dual chime is insufficient for this application, but I recorded a flute sound to accent the story line of the fairy tale while the Anniversary clock movement was modified to keep the Pied Piper figure in motion. The clock body was made with various pieces of plywood. The wood shingles for the roof and the wood fish scale shingles for the gable end along with the brick veneer were purchased at a Hobby Lobby Store, Doll House Department. This was fun to build for a story line that has a very good lesson for children, that being "If you make a promise, be sure to keep it".

When you first introduced these units, they seemed appealing for gifts to pas on to my adult sons. However, the idea of four dials all in one setting seemed a bit overwhelming. So, I played with the idea until it came to me to make bookends and split the dials into two groups of two.

When I heard my first born granddaughter was getting married, I knew I had to design and build her a "Wedding Clock". After searching for ideas and finding nothing, I came up with my own plan, as pictured. My finished clock is built of cedar and cypress, and it uses Klockit's skeleton movement. The side are 1/2" x 1/2" slats fastened to a half circle shape top and bottom. Plexiglas was used for the front window; and also the rear door. Drawing the plans to scale was the hardest. The actual construction was a true "labor of love"!

You have to get down low with camera. The plaque says to Dan & Lori - In Loving Memory of Your Son - Joshua Paul Conn - May 6, 1979 - Feb 5, 2009. the clock is made of mahogany. I did the glass work on the door. It has 10 pieces of glue glass on outside of bottom section with clear glass in the middle and on the top section. the face was purchased from you. The movement and hands are also from your company. There are two sound holes on each side with speaker fabric. These come out for access to movement which plays Whittington or Westminster chimes. It also has a recorder you can say or play something for 10 seconds and have that play on the hour. We recorded a line from a song, If I could Turn Back the Hands of Time.

I thought I would share a picture of a clock that I just made for my soon to be 14 year old grandson. For the last two birthdays & Christmases we had bought him skateboards which he shortly annihilate. After our buying four boards and his destroying them we thought we should give him something more lasting for his upcoming birthday so I had his father mail me one of his broken boards. Getting a backward running clock, a hygrometer and a thermometer I made him the skateboard clock that he can confound and influence friends with. And, incidentally, he will probably be able to keep this in one piece for longer than a couple months.

I just finished this clock, as a Christmas present for my wife. The clocks measurements are, 83" high x 16" wide x 8" deep. The clock is made with shiplap, rough cut lumber, to give it an early American country look. It is finished with antique white crackle paint. The clock works are stk# 11097 and the pendulum is # 20051. It took me about 6 hours to build and another 2 hours to finish.

As you can see with the help of my son John we altered the kit plan so that the lower section of the clock front was removed and thus the beautiful birch panel behind the pendulum is clearly visible. I think it is a nice alteration on this clock. I actually bought 4 of the kits and the clock pictured is the 2nd one I completed this week. I stained one with Minwax Natural stain and this one with Minwax Golden Pecan.

This tall 1700's clock fell out of the back of a truck and the dry oak case was in many pieces. The owner retained the face and works but decided to get rid of all the wood. He put it in a local auction where I purchased it for $50.00. With your 10169 movement and a lot of gluing it really looks great!! I am very proud of the way it turned out.

I used a Klockit 12244 Pendulum chiming mechanism, and a 26221 face. My Granddaughter, age three is named Susannah and she lives in Georgia. Her mother ask me to make a chiming clock for her bedroom. I had been thinking about the song, OH, Susanna, coming to Alabama with a Banjo her knee. (I live in Alabama) It was then that I decided to use an old Banjo Ukulele to go with the clock, and then added an old piece of sheet music to add character. I also hand engraved a gold colored plate to her, it is behind the pendulum bob and does not show up well in the picture.

A photo of my rendition of an Irish Palor Clock. I built it from an article that I downloaded off the internet. Basicly there was a material list and an exploded view of the cabinet and door and several detail drawings dthat wern't too accurate. It took several tries to get the door right and dthe glass to fit . In the process of building, there was a slight accident which dented the ring on the clock face but it is mine and my goof and I will live with it. The clock is 33 " tall and case is 12-1/2 " wide. The glass on the clock face is 9-3/8 " square plate glass with a 3/4 " bevel with the remaining glass1/4" plate glass. The case is all hand made out of figured Cherry and each piece was hand polished to a glass like finish with a light coat of carneuba wax. The wood was harvested from a 70' Cherry tree in Colonial Beach Virginia in 2007. I am in the process of building another identical clock using native white oak that was harvested from Shepards Town, WV, about 10 miles from my home. This tree, harvested in 2002 was approximately 250 years old. This clock too will have a hand polished finish also.

I've been involved with different crafts for quite some time. I have made table lamps, jewelry and now wall clocks. My first ones were made from wood of various kinds and shapes. I have started making clocks with glass serving trays and plates. All of which I have purchased at garage sales or our local Goodwill thrift store. I had a tile drill that I had used for our bathroom that worked really well on glass. I was quite nervous at first, not knowing if the glass would shatter or not. I found out that with some practice, it was actually quite easy. The hard part was to get the hole centered but then I thought of starting the hole with a small diamond rotary tool bit. I have only made a few clocks out of glass but an throughly enjoying it.

As a glass artist, it's a challenge to be in this contest. I've been a customer of Klockit and purchase my supplies often. I think I bring something different in that my clocks are all glass and mirror. I like to use two clock movements and separate sweep second hand. Designing and putting it together with your own hands - in the end watching it come alive is the best part of this experience! I would like to thank Klockit for their wide range of supplies for my clocks.

I find woodworking a very fascinating and rewarding hobby. Clockmaking is such a natural fit. I also enjoy painting outdoor scenes on old circular saw blades which is also a perfect fit for clockmaking. Members of my family like to bring me pictures of things that they want me to make for them. I sacle the pictures and reproduce a finished product. My largest project was an alter and puldit for my church which took several weeks to build.

The grandfather clock car is one of my favorites. All components of the car were mde from the original pinewood derby kit. The door was cut from the top of the block in a 1/8" sheet with a miter saw. Theat's a delicate operation when cutting a block only 7" long and 1 3/4" wide. Next, the block was hollowed out with a Dremel bit and a wood chisel. The car had to be weighed so I shaped a piece of lead to fit behind the clock insert. The "glass" in the clock door is a small piece of Plexiglas. The clock insert is Klockit item #15277.

I created this 16 1/2" stained glass violin clock by making scale drawing patterns from a photograph of a violin. This clock is comprised of eleven pieces of stained glass, copper foiled and soldered togetehr, forming the violin body, fingerboard, chinrest, tailpiece, pegbox and scroll. It was necessary to elevate the dial above th violin body to allow clearance over the chinrest and tailpiece. The four tuning pegs were created by using 16ga. wire forming a loop which is solder filled and then soldered in place in the pegbox and scroll. I used Klockit standard Quartex movement #10153, aluminum gold arabic dial #26813 and completed this with style 2 black hands #66952.

I began collecting smoe of the scrap lumber that was headed to the dumpster - 1/4 inch maple veneer plywood, 1/2 inch cherry ceiling boards and 3/4 inch hard maple. The new building needed new clocks for the meeting rooms and the gathering area. I decided to construct several clocks using the leftover scrap lumber as much as possible. In the end, I made nine clocks for various locations in the new building.

The story is, four guys got up from their poker game to watch the Super Bowl. Although it looks as if they left the table in random order, a closer examination reveals that they left a clock face as follows: 12= spade queen, 1 = diamond ace, 2 = the $2 chip, 3 = club trey, 4 = club four, 5 = the $5 chip, 6 = spade six, 7 = spade seven, 8 = the total of the $5, $2 and $1 chips, 9 = spade nine, 10 = heart 10 and 11 = the total of the $10 and $1 chips.

I am a retired officer from Ohio. I took up woodworking as a hobby and it turned out to be very addicting. I bought plans for this clock and its components from Klockit. I have made cuckoo clocks which I gave to my friends and family. I think I am driving my wife crazy because I have four clocks in the same area of the house and they all chime at the same time. I think this clock turned out to be pretty nice and it was fun to make.

A number of years ago I installed in my family room a wall clock from kit parts I obtained from Klockit. I first looked for a commerical version of this idea, but most were completely out of the ballpark for cost. In its simplicity, this package from you is quite a complement to my cathedral ceiling style room.

After a life time of manufacturing heavy equipment (lift trucks and lumber carriers) I retired to be a full time volunteer with Oregon State parks. My wife & I spent 8 years living on the coast in our trailer. Then we really retired to a small property in the Willamette Valley that had a small house and a nice-sized shop; the perfect place for a woodshop. After ordering your largest clock, I built a round black walnut frame with legs and a low shelf and Viola!... a coffee table. Between the married kids and grandkids I've been keeping busy making "clock tables"; even one for an exchange student who has become our "Japanese grandson". Our only granddaughter got a cedar chest. Our granddaughters-in-law have asked for small chairs for a day care job, end tables, etc. The latest is the grandfather clock plans from one of you clock kits: triple chime, 8-day cable-driven works.

I have always enjoyed working with wood and dreamed of building a grandfather clock when I retired. It became a reality after we harvested some oak, walnut, and cherry trees from my mother-in-laws woods in Ohio. The Klockit clock movement we liked, #13104, plays "America the Beautiful" or "Westminster" chime. This 8-day cable driven Hermle movement required a long pendulum. After reviewing clock kit plans and looking in furniture stores for clock design ideas to fit the selected clock movement, we found one, while on vacation in a store in Texas. We asked the store owner if we could take some rough overall measurements and take some pictures. He said fine, just enjoy. When back home in Ohio, I built a prototype first from soft maple to be sure that the clock had a balanced proportioned look. Also, that the clock movement mechanism, pendulum length and swing would fit and work within the clock design style proportion. After some fine tuning, I built a final copy from walnut. This walnut clock pictured is a gift for my wife.I'll be building three more, one for eac of our children during 2011 in cherry wood. The face of the upper croll pediment and overall clock size is 23"wide at top, 89" High. Looks great with ceilings 9' high or more.

We had to get the pendulum just right, in the place where we wanted it to be, which took some figuring out. It took us about 2 months to finish cutting staining, and put together.

The clock was made by using Quartex Brand Movements and a pendulum Case Assembly. The clock is an original design that illustrates selected pieces of Silver Plated Flatware that I have collected over the past years. The clock was entered in the Fredrick County Fair in Fredrick Maryland and received a "Blue Ribbon" and "Best-of-Show" honors. I have been making clocks from Klockit parts for many years. Some range from parts retrieved from early computer hard drives to 30-inch timber saw blades. My current project is one that will be a combination clock/silver chest. The idea is to illustrate the silverware six days a week in the chest and then open a door and set the table on the seventh

The clock is an amalgam of parts assembled over a period of time. The clock's story begins with one of your slim 'N trim (#13008) movements originally purchased for a slim waisted Grandmother clcok I was building for my wife for Christmas in '06. The mechanism turned out to be unsuitable as the pendulum #19005 length was much to short for this grandmother case. I decided to put the mechanism into one of your Jeweler's wall clock cases from you plans. I had to modify the door in order to show off more of the Slim 'N Trim's larger dial face. If you look closely you can still see some distinct elements of the Jeweler's Case. With the short frop distance of the JEweler's case, the mechanism required winding every couple days. So I removed the decorative elements from the wall clcok case bottom. This resolved the need to wind the clock every few days but created additional problems as the clock did not look attractive with the weights hanging out the now open bottom. The final resolution was to add a bottom section complete with an attractive base to the Jeweler's case. The clock is now a very petite floor clock with enough weight drop length that it requires winding only once a week. The case is made of cherry and is assembled with discretely hidden screws that allow the case tobe completely disassembled for transport or servicing. This clock was given to my daughter on the occasion of her wedding and has received many favorable comments from visitors to her home.

I started woodworking a few years ago. I have no prior experience in woodworking. I've been teaching myself how to read plans and use the tools properly and safely. I was expecting a grandchild and I wanted to build something special for her. So, I decided to try to build this child's floor clock, in hopes that it also would be good enough to be a family heirloom in the future. I built it out of solid red oak. I finished it inside & out, and lined all the drawers and cabinet floor. I also modified the top pediment a bit. All of the components of the clock and plans are from Klockit. The people at your company were very helpful in supplying me with the correct parts, as I had no experience building something like this.

One is crafted in African Mahogany and is 72" high by 17" wide and 12" deep. I used art glass front and sides high enough to view the Westminster movement (#13037) fully. The second one is crafted in Purple Heart wood has the same size and features heavy grained art glass. I also used the Westminster regulator movement (#13037). These are the latest clocks I made. I have used three Westminster movement, a great product. Each clock designed to be simple and stands 30" high legs. Hopefully they are worthy of consideration in your contest.

I have been building log furniture for about 15 years. My bet friends children asked me to make this clock of aspen for their 25th anniversary. All lumber and trim was miled by us at our ranch. First I purchased the Cheyenne pattern and hardware kit from Klockit. I used #13044 triple chime movement and theShanandoah decorative dial, pendulum, and weight shell set. I had never made anything from a plan so it was really a challenge for me. I changed the scroll work to incorporate ther ranch. My biggest challenge was keeping it hidden from my friend as she lives so close to me and we see each other daily. When I finished the project her daughter and I took it to her house after they left for work and (with the help from Klockit technicians) got it all assembled before the end of the day. They were so astonished and thrilled when they saw and heard the clock. The look on their faces was priceless. All the stress of getting all things right was so worth it. I may make one for myself sometime. I've purchased umerous other movements from Klockit and never been dissatisfied.

The wood came from the shores of Tulaby Lake in western MN. The tree was cut down to make room for a new home. I usually saw and dry my own lumber but a local company milled this. I've built eighteen various styles of clocks since I retired. I try not to make any two clocks the same. I used your Churchill plans but modified them. The front case frame assembly was simplified for ease of attachment. Because it is hard to find plywood that doesn't fray when cut, the grill covers which call for 1/4" plywood, were milled ot of lumber. The hardest part to building this clock is turning the beeded columns. The drawings call for fluted columns, I had a special bt cute and using a bit extender and clamping device I cut the beads, then split the columns and glued them in place. Also replaced the crowm molding with my own style. I always place mirrors in the back of my clocks. I use a 9" piece of pipe in the weights so they will hang straight and electric drives as no one wants to bother with winding clocks anymore. I've used all electric drives even fro the second hand in my clocks, resulting in no callbacks. The electric drives run a year without problems. With the mechanical drive, out of all the Grand Father clocks I've built to date, I had two call backs the first year. This clock took extra time to build, as the spalted wood was hard to work with and broke easily. As I remember the door broke and had no lumber long enough to replace it. I went back to the miller of this lumber and hand picked a few pieces to finish the clock. The clock required very little stain as only a small amount was used for shading. The deep wet look came fromt eh four coats of hand rubbed polyurethane.

I made these clocks from scratch, just from looking at a picture of your model #34742… Samual Grandfather curio kit from a 2008 catalog. I used part of the measurements from it and added my own. The base is solid mahogany, the main parts are oak, some from collected over the last 12 years, Woodlate ornaments are black walnut, still had it from 50 years ago, that some day I would use it for something special. It took over 4 months of patient work to do the job, I learned from it and could do even a better job the next time. Besides the clock works it only cost me a couple of hundred dollars, not including the wood I already had. Thank you for your help and suggestions.

My mantel clock project all started when we went to a clock store to buy a co-worker a mantel clock as a going away gift for his retirement. While in the store, I was amazed of the variety of old style clocks that were still sold. Being a high tech gadget kind of guy, I thought we should buy him an atomic clock in an old style cabinet but they only had quartz and mechanical movements. Ultimately, we decided to buy him a mechanical clock because his wife also collected them. My wife and my 30th anniversary was only 6 months away and since this was a milestone anniversary I decided I would get her something special and different. This would be a gift she would cherish. The mantel clock would be a perfect gift but the nice ones were very expensive. If I could build it, the gift would not only be less expensive but also special and be a family heirloom.

My name is George Kroes and I built a grandfather clock for my senior project in my advanced woods class. My clock had to be built in one semester, which I did not think would be enough time. Through this project I experienced much difficulty. I spent day and night on this clock, and it does not help that we only get 55 minutes a day to work on it in school. While making the door, I cut my finger with a jigsaw and had to go to the hospital. I guess when they said through blood, sweat and tears comes great outcomes, they were telling the truth. This has been a great experience for me and after I finished it I felt very good about perservance. We finished two days after we graduated and it felt great. The clocks turned out fantastic. We did not have much of an idea, so we kind of built what ever we decided would look good. I believe this clock with your guts inside has become one of my most prized possessions and will be in the family forever.

I used no plans on these clocks, I would look at your magazine, see a design, then make it to my liking. After the first one I was hooked, making these was a blast. I would spend hours, after supper in my garage creating these (about 1 every two weeks as time persisted) I would prepare pieces of hard wood cut-offs getting the most out of the wood I could, glue them up and work with that size. The challenge was sizing them up so they would look right, for not a two are the same size, again I would use paint cans, pot lids, and pieces of pipe, what ever I had in the garage that caught my eye and would fit the design I was creating.

I recently completed the mission style remake of the surrounding tile and mantel of our fireplace and my wife suggested we search for a clock to sit on the mantel. Of course, Klockit was the first website we searched. Unfortunately, although very interesting, the displayed mission style clock just didn't fit our needs. So back to the search, this time using Google. Within a short period of time we came across a web site that featured some very unique, beautifully designed and likewise, very expensive, handcrafted mantel clocks. We now had the design we wanted but there was no plan. The next step was obvious, I had to develop a plan. Using the dimensions given for the mission style clock on the Klockit website, I drew a full size pattern using the shape we desired. Once again, I returned to the Klockit website and ordered the parts for their mission clock (#39104). Once the parts arrived, I was surprised to find that the glass plate for the door was included. This was ideal since I now could create the door size to fit the glad. I then modified the scale drawing to accommodate the door size. Interestingly the difference was about 1/2 inch in each dimension so the modification was simple. Since I had some red oak left over from the mantel remake, I cute some strips 3/4 inch square to use for the door frame and some thinner strips for the door center. The 3/4 inch strips were rabbited on one edge and then cut to fit the glass, allowing about 1/16 inch space all around. The frame was glued and air-nailed together and checked for square. The door center pieces were cut, fitted and permanently attached. The completed door could now be used to determine the width of the clock. I had sufficient oak for everything except the thick sides. From my scaled pattern, I determined that two pieces of 1 3/4 inch oak 5 1/2 inched wide would be needed to gain the proper thickness and depth of the clock sides. The oak was cut into 6 pieces approximately 16 inches long. Each of 3 pieces was laminated together to form two thick pieces approximately 16 inches long, 5 1/2 wide and 5 1/4 inches thick. Using the pattern, I marked the curve for each side and cut them out on the band saw. Using the door frame as a guide, all the pieces separating the sides including the dial support and back were cut to fit. The top was made by resawing a piece of 3/4 inch oak down to 3/8 inches thick. All were then sanded progressing to 320 grit, then stained and sealed with shellac. Four coats of satin lacquer was applied prior to assembly. All clock case parts were assembled using glue, air gun nails and screws. The glass in the door frame was held in place with strips of oak glued to the inside of the frame. Hinges were attached to the door. The dial face as resized to fit, glued in place and the clock mechanism and dials installed. Half inch squares of thin walnut were glued in a diamond pattern on the lower face of each side.

I built this clock in the end of 08 and beginning of 09. It is made from solid walnut and the pattern is from 4 different clock styles. I designed the clock from pictures that I got off the internet. It took a long time to get my patterns just right and it turned out very nice. The wood that I used was very nice to work with and took a while to get the shades to match just right. The movement is a Hermle cable-driven #13104 with #13096 weight shells and #19004 pendulum and a #28021L dial. It is a very easy movement to set up and also very beautiful and clear chimes. Over the years I have bought a few different time pieces and am very satisfied with products that I get from Klockit. Keep up the good work. I have always bought through a friend from the US, cause of lower shipping charges but it will not deter me cause of me being Canadian. The clock measures 81 1/2"H x 26"W x 15 1/2"D

For all the pieces it takes to make a good clock, this was one of my favorite clocks to put together. It combines pieces from two fun camping trips. The blue barite stones come from a trip my girlfriend and I took to Stoneham, CO. We spent the day digging up these beautiful gems, and the night gazing up at the stars in the wide open country sky. The fossil fish comes from a trip we took to the historic green river formation in Kemmerer, WY. We spent three days digging up these 50 million year old fossils that seem to have been frozen in time.

I used an oxen yoke and scaled it down to a size of 2" x 8" x 19". I learned how to bend wood and use a lathe to turn the pins. It was made to look old by using a glazing technique which makes it look old and worn. The finish is a clear satin lacquer.

This is the 3rd and final clock of this type. I call it my heritage clock because each of them has the family name of my 3 daughters as part of the design. This clock will be a gift to my grandson as a wedding gift. The clock is made from walnut and took approximately 30 hours to build. It uses your 12003 Tubular Quad Chime Quartz Movement and the 16" antique pendulum. The dimensions are 21" tall, 14" wide and 4" deep. The corners are all mitered even though the front trim covers the joints. The first two heritage clocks were similar but different in design. I felt that it was important to make each of them unique. Something you may find interesting (most people who do this type of thing do_ is that I do not draw any plan. I make it up as I go along. For me, this is part of the fun in building something like this and I always work strictly from outside dimensions. I purchase the wood, whish is 1 inch rough sawn, and do all of the finishing myself. It is very rewarding for me to take an 8 foot piece of rough sawn walnut and turn it into a finished clock as you see here. I am now retired and have been a woodworker since I was 12 years old. One of my friends made an interesting comment. He said, "You should be able to make a clock like this. After all, you have and 64 years of experience!"

Timber - Madrone; Mechanism - Kieninger 8 day triple chime cable driven; Face - Custom ceramic over metal with moon and date It is very rare to find a clock constructed in the challenging Art-Nouveau style but I enjoy making furniture in that style so I decided to give it a go. I selected Madrone, a timber from the Pacific North West for a couple of reasons: It is strong, dense and finishes very well in the warm caramel tones that the style demands. Also the fine grain allows for curvy details and carving. Sadly it was only available in 1 inch thickness so I had to laminate boards together to achieve the necessary thickness for the flowing curves of the base. I began the design phase with a couple of things in mind. I wanted a tall, slim grandfather clock with soft flowing lines. Once I was satisfied with the proportions of the design, I began to design the curves and details to give it the unique look of the Art-Nouveau style. The clock was constructed in the following order. First I finished the rough woodwork of the base, then the waist and its door. Finally the hood, door, and inner face. Then I began the fine details of the curves and carvings in the same order. After a final sanding I applied a clear wood sealer and wax finish to achieve a soft luster. Total project time was about 4 months. It stands an impressive 7 foot 4 inches tall. I believe the clock achieves the goal I set for myself when I began the project. It had organic flowing curves which suggest it was grown rather than built and one is drawn to touch the smooth wood. It also, of course, tells the time.

I served in WWII on the battleship USS Arkansas BB33 and hen worked with heavy equipment for 58 years. After the War, I resumed woodworking in the basement of our home until my shop was built in 1970. Over the years, I have completed several furniture projects including beds, sideboards, dry sinks, quilt racks, rockers, roll tops for large antique desks, picture frames, lamps, bar, silver cabinets, bowls, spice racks, and toys. For a lot of those years, I also repaired antiques for dealers. My most unusual project was building a pair of wooden axels, frame and some body work for the restoration of a 1909 Brush automobile. But the bulk of my work has been building clocks of all shapes and sizes. I have completed over twenty grandfather and grand mother clocks, and many dozens of others, including mantle, wall, school, mini-school, and numerous smaller designs. For many years, I was able to acquire full grown trees for my projects: red oak, white oak, walnut, cherry, cedar, ash, and apple woods. I had these sawed in Solon Mills, IL, and the wood was cured in my shop for at least three years before using. In 1974, I purchased a pattern for my first grandmother clock. Since then, I have created my own designs for each clock. Ter have been grandmothers and grandfathers. Waist clocks and straight sided clocks. Some with solid burl accents, others with caned inserts. Tops, bases, and legs took on all types of shapes. This clock we built in 20202 for my nephew and his wife, as a gift from his mother. It is red oak from a tree cut down in Fontana, WI, by myself and my brother-in-law, then sawed and cured. I designed the clock to include the requests from my nephew and niece. The ropes and feet were milled in a shop owned by my niece's family. The 8-day, cable-driven, 9-tube, triple chime movement with moon dial and lyre pendulum was purchased from Klockit. It also has beveled glass and hand-turned finials. The overall dimensions are 90"high x 28" wide x 15" deep. It is finished with golden oak stain and sealed with Minwax semi-gloss polyurethane. It happily resides in Yukon, OK. Clock building has been, and continues to be, a true joy in my life. As I like to say, "We don't have too much stuff at our place, but we do have a lot of time."

I saw a picture of this clock on the cover of a tool catalog. I liked it and wanted to build one like it. There weren't any dimensions given, so I started with the dial size 6x6 #26498 and worked outward, the finished size is 13 1/4"H x 10 1/2"W x 5"D, inside size (where the movement is) is 8"H x 8"W x 2 1/2D. I used #12190 non-pendulum movement. Since one of the clocks I made was for the retirements of a Catholic Sister, the melody of Ave Maria was just perfect. I have made this clock in Cherry, Black Walnut, Red & White oak, and white pine. the cherry to me is the nicest, the black walnut is elegant and classic (I used Black Walnut for Sister), the red oak, and the white oak were disappointing, maybe on a different type of clock they would be alright. The white pine was ok. I stained the door and drawer, the inside, and the top and the base in maple, and painted the sides in Hunt Club green, it looked a little like country, it was nice but one was enough.

I was puttering around in the shop one afternoon when my 17 year-old approached me and said that he wanted to build something for his girlfriend for their 8th month anniversary (yeah right!) So we talked for a while and came up with the idea of building her a nice clock for her desk at school. In a few moments we had come up with plans and a sketch and set to work. We used a nice piece of Cherry and employed the table saw, band saw, cut off saw, router, drill press, sander, wood lathe, clamps, and a good bit of glue. We had a special message engrave, "Count your days and make your days count." We then finished it with a couple of treatments of boiled linseed oil. In the end, we wound up with a unique handsome desk clock. She was overjoyed! But more important than the project was the process. I got to spend lots of time guiding and rubbing elbows with my son. I learned a long time ago that it's better to build memories than monuments. Priceless!!!

The floor clock was made for our grandson's 6th birthday. I used willow wood (poor man walnut). It has Klockit incredible six-melody quartz chime movement. It has a separate pendulum. I engraved Jack's name in the middle of the door and around the edge cartoon characters and Mollie the family dog. Also a Klockit name plate with Jack's name and occasion and year. The wall clocks were made with 1/4" oak plywood. The 2 small 24" clocks have regular Klockit quartz movements. The large clock has a Klockit incredible six melody quartz chime movements. The two small clocks were made for friends and the large clock was made for Aunt Betty's 102nd birthday. A Klockit nameplate was added to Aunt Betty's clock with her name, occasion, and year.

My wife had been wanting a big wall clock for a long time to put on our otherwise blank wall. And she wants to put pictures of our only grandchild (a boy) around it to represent the times and events in his and our lives. So, for our anniversary this past year I made her this clock. I used the high torque movement #10115, and the hands that are 12" long #66797. It's cut from 3/4 inch plywood and painted white, then I made roman numerals on our computer and put them on sticker paper and added them to the face and put clear coat over all. The tie-dye is from an old t-shirt. Everyone that sees it loves it, and our oldest daughter wants one as well as one of her friends, I'm working on them now. My daughter's will be pink tie-dye, and black and the hands maybe red or purple.

My hobby is in woodworking. I have made a grandfather clock that I think you'll enjoy. I've been a loyal customer since 2004. I really like the quality and the great prices of your products. I made my clock in 3 pieces, the dimensions of my clock are as follows: 84"T x 38"W x 15"D/ I made it out of butternut and I stained it from a mixture of a 50% special Walnut, 50% red oak. It took 2 months to finish the clock and 1 month to finish the Intarsia Mayan God. In addition, I put 2 glass shelves. It has 6 doors for easy access. I used a tubular quad chime quartz movement, independent pendulum drive unit, a set of decorative weight shells, long lyre pendulum, a temper fugit dial. I will always be a loyal customer.

This clock is one of many that I have designed and built using Klockit arts. The unique thing about this clock is that the mandolin can actually be played. The clock is cut from a solid piece of white oak by using a band saw and router. The frets are made from number ten electrical wire and the buttons are small pearl buttons. Some of the other parts are made from stainless steel. Aside from the clock works, the only things purchased are the strings and tuner. The finish on the body is mahogany.

Recently, I completed the Williamsburg Grandfather's clock form the plans from Klockit. It is beautiful and a wonderful addition to our home. I started building the clock in October 2008. My wife had wanted a grandfather's clock for a while, but we just never got around to building one. Due to work cutbacks, I found myself with some spare time, but not a lot of extra money, so there it begins. In October, we received the plans and went to buy the first pieced of lumber. Each month with whatever money we had leftover, we would buy a piece of lumber or something we needed for the clock. For Christmas 2008, we received the mechanisms and the pendulum as gifts. The clock was finally starting to take shape. Throughout the summer of 2009, still working on it a little at a time, we were ready for the glass. Once the door and sides were on, we couldn't wait for it to be finished and come from our basement to our living room. Finally in September, 2009 our clock was complete. We brought it in the living room, put it where its new home was going to be and set everything up only to find out it did not chime. After a few hours of pouring over my plans and looking through the trouble shooting guide, I decided to call customer service. I spoke to a very nice lady who tried to talk me through a few things she thought may be wrong. Nothing worked. She suggested that we send the mechanism back to Klockit so she could check it out and see what was wrong. She called after a few days to say that one of the levers inside had gotten bent, and that she had fixed it and would send it back out to us in a day or so once she was sure it was working properly. Sure enough by the end of that week, we had it back. I put it all back in and set everything the way it was going and the clock made the most beautiful sounds. Our grandfather's clock was complete. The clock now sits in our home and looks and sounds beautiful. Everyone that comes in remarks on its beauty and how nice it sounds. I am very proud of the fact that I built this magnificent clock, and though it took me a little over a year to complete, it is well worth it. So thank you Klockit for helping me to build a beautiful clock that I know, will be in our family for generations to come.

The original design wall clock is made from one piece of metal, 15.5" x 5.75". The top and bottom designs are then cut with a hacksaw blade on a band saw, with the hole cut for the pendulum to drop through. Then the breaks are made in the appropriate places, Klockit movement #15646 is pushed through the hole, the pendulum attached and voila! A handsome wall clock.

A few years ago I had a business investment that failed and my partner left me with all of the debt. I had always wanted to build a clock and I suggested that to my debtor as a partial payment. It turned out that he had actually been wanting one. In fact he had me build two. This one I am submitting is my favorite. It is made of African Mahogany. In it's construction I was able to use various skills hat I had learned over the years along with some new ones. My shop is set up in a non electric fashion. I try to do most of my work without power tools I use a treadle lathe, hand planes, chisels, and a folding rule, but I have yet to rip the full length lumber with a hand saw. Any how I was already somewhat practiced in furniture building and wood turning but I had never set clock movements or pendulums. The movement I chose was the Hermle 8 day cable driven triple chime grandfather movement. I was pleased how easy and clear the instructions were and it went together quite smoothly. Also this was my first attempt at carving. O knew of a local wood carver and he was kind enough to help me along, fortunately for me mahogany is a fairly easy wood to carve and it turned out to be a satisfying experience. One other note, I try to use every part of my furniture so I have placed a hidden compartment in the base of this clock to hide cash or other valuable. Sorry but I can't tell you how to open it. Since that time I have built many clocks for many people. So now, looking back, I realize that I was forced into expanding my wood working talents and abilities and what I had considered to be a financial disaster turned out to be a boom in the long run. The clock now stands in the lobby of one of the largest construction companies here in Utah. Their front desk secretary keeps it would and dust free, there has never been one minute of problems with the works, weights, pendulum or it's accuracy in keeping time. It has been a pleasant experience from the purchase of the works, to the ongoing enjoyment of the piece.

I am 19. When I built my grandfather clock, having never attempted a project this big or difficult before, I was ready for a challenge. I started the clock in my High School shop class and completed it at home. There were no plans for this clock; all of the plans were drawn by me. The idea came from a pencil sharpener of a miniature grandfather clock that was only 3" tall. The only things that were purchased on my clock were the 8 day chain driven movement, face, pendulum, weight shells, and additional hardware. it stands 83 1/2" tall, a maximum width of 23" and depth of 13 1/2". It is made entirely of native solid walnut moldings and spindles. All of the wood is from my grandparent's farm that my grandfather cut and milled over 30 years ago. When I went to retrieve the wood, I was shocked to see how rough of shape it was in, with bark and saw mill marks from an old antique saw mill. I spent many hours milling, cutting, and planning boards down to usable lumber. I used Tong Oil for the finish. Although this project was difficult, the challenge was fun as well as educational. This project was a challenge because I had never built a clock of any sort before, I had to mill down all my own lumber, and I had to make my plans without any previous experience in clock making. Even so, I know that this grandfather clock will be a family heirloom for many generations to come.

This clock was made from cedar cut in Capitan, NM. What was just an idea before the wood was cut turned into an actual clock. The process consisted of many steps. The first step was to measure where the center of the clock was. Then a 5/16" hole was drilled for a shaft of the clock movement. Next, I used a dermal o cut the square hole for the clock movement. Then I hand carved the bark-off the edges of he clock. Next, I sanded the clock with rough sand paper and also had to use a circular sander to level the face of the clock. Then I made my own wood filler of wood glue and saw dust and used it to fill the cracks in the wood. Once I was dried, the glue was sanded to he level of the wood and also primed for a coat of clear polymer resin. hen to make each clock (I made 3) significant, each clock has the individual's initials and where the wood was cut. Next, the clock was coated with a coat of clear polymer resin. Once the clock was dry, it was then fitted with the clock movement (#10164) and clock hands (#66958 & #68079). Last, the clock was fitted with Roman numerals (#60071). Thanks to Klockit I was able to find the Roman numerals on their site and I was not able to them elsewhere.

I live in a town named after Seth Thomas, one of the most famous clockmakers in Connecticut. It was only natural that I became interested in building clocks. Being a graphic artist and cartoonist, my clock designs reflect that. I'm sending you pictures of a Monkey Clock that I built for my Godson, Tyler. The monkey and dial are carved from pine plank and the banana leaves are from luan. Tyler is 4 years old and loves everything monkey. His favorite character is Curious George. He is just beginning to learn how to tell time and I thought this would help him along. I have built several cartoon character clocks but this is my favorite. I've only been making clocks for the last few years and am so glad I found Klockit. Having your components makes it easy to concentrate on the design and you take care of the rest. Your people are the best. I just ordered some more components and can't wait to start some new clock ideas.

Somewhere along the line I became a clock collector. I'm very fond of mantle clocks. I like clocks that look as though they came from an old farm house or from a middle class family, plain and unadorned. I like the fact that these "machines", mark the time of the day. Last winter I sat at my computer, searching eBay for another clock to add to my collection. While looking around I found a seller who had a beautiful Eames era starburst clock. I thought to myself "I remember these clocks", they always seemed a little over the top, maybe even a little tacky. I found myself wanting one. As it turned out the clocks went for way more than I was willing to pay. I gave up on the clocks. I had purchased a quartz movement from Klockit to convert an old electric clock to battery. While working on this clock, I realized I could just make my own starburst clock. The wheels stated turning, I mentally gathered the materials I could use. I used the internet to find photos of Eames era clocks so I could get an idea of the variety & proportion. I began working on the clock. I purchased one of your Dcell quartz movements, with contemporary hands. The clock case is made from a nine inch cake pan. The steel rings and hardwood balls were purchased from a local craft store. The wooden rays are made of poplar. The steel supports for the wooden parts are simple, quarter inch machine bolts with the heads removed. The thin rays are made from one eight inch threaded rod with an acorn nut on the end. the clock was painted a satin gold metallix with the face being painted with a hammered gold. The hands were painted with a textured black paint. There are some things I wish I had done differently, however I am happy with the outcome. My wife even likes it. Everyone comments on how someone in their family had one like it.

Although somewhat new to woodworking I have enjoyed using Klockit components and ideas for a number of clocks. These clocks, as presents, have thrilled everyone who has received one. I needed something for my grandson who recently turned thirteen, Using the Klockit catalog I came up with a few ideas. One being the wall or desk mounted weather station. That particular design utilized four movements, which was a bit large for my purpose. The two-toned design also interested me. So using old drafting tools, I came up with the enclosed design. We're looking forward to Christmas to see the reaction on my grandson's face.

I am submitting these pictures for my dad, Bob Cole. He has been an avid woodworker for more than 40 years. In addition to the numerous clocks my dad has made over the years, he has also made a drafting able, built-in (wall of bookshelves & drawers), coffee table, end table, kitchen table, dresser, numerous picture frames, bridge for backyard Japanese garden, benches, etc. He is alive & well. My dad is pictured by the robot clock that stands in the foyer of my parents home in Derwood, Maryland. I remember when I was a young girl I watched my dad trace the outline of his hand for the robot clock. I think the concept of a robot clock is clever & unique. My husband and I have a pond with geese so my dad made us the clock with the geese face and he made shelves to display wood geese and ducks. The clock is made from a wine crate. The coke clock is my brothers. It is made from a coke crate. He made my other brother a clock from cigar boxes. (No picture) One day my dad was visiting and was telling us about how he was lifting weights (barbells) and he had lost weight. It got to be a joke about how he used to be heavy. The next time he came to visit he brought the clock with the brass frog lifting weights and had a plaque engraved "I used to be heavy". He found the frog at a local antique store. It is also made from a wine box. I love my father & his creativity. It's always fun to see what he's going to come up with next. One day I walked into his family room and had to do a double take. He had replaced the weights in his grandfather's clock with hand grenades (replica's) hanging from chains. I would like to share his creativity with others.

About the time I retired, my father-in-law, who was in his 80's, cut some oak trees, had them made into lumber. I was given some of the boards. After he passed away, I thought it would be nice to make something for all of the family members such as a nice wall clock. So, my journey into clock making began. I felt that I would need something to do rather than sit around and rust.

I have built 4 grandmother clocks over a number of years. The last one was for my wife. I gave her clock to a fundraising auction for nonprofit organization with the promise to my wife that I would build her another one. I began visited a number of stores that sold grandfathers clock and sent for a number of clock catalogs to get ideas & then I drew out my plans for a dream clock for my wife. I made a full sized drawing & then started on the project. I decided to include a number of hardwoods including: rosewood, cherry, crotch mahogany, Russian walnut burl, and birch. It took about 3 months to complete the clock case. Before I put the finish on it, my wife and I took a trip to your store & looked at all the option for works, pendulums, faces, and weights. I thought that this might be my last clock, as I am 73, so I decided to purchase a Hermle 8-day Cable Driven, 9 Tube Movement with a deluxe dial, pendulum, and weight set. I made the decision to have leaded glass on all the glass sections & took my drawings to a special glass studio & the owner said he could make them for me. I did not want someone else to make them seeing this was my creation so I asked him to teach me to lead glass. I attended a few of his evening classes & then created the glass panels for the clock. This added to the satisfaction one feels when it is all finished & you have made a heirloom for the family that will be cherished.

The picture is of a Tidal Clock I built, using your 8" Tidal Dial & Movement #35326, and your Friction Fit Glass & Bezel #27103. I had to trim the dial a small amount to fit the ID of the Bezel. Since you do not offer a kit in which to install this clock (at least I could not find one in the catalog and one of your advisors told me you didn't offer one), I built my own from 1/4 plywood sides and 1/8 tempered Masonite face (thin, so movement shaft would protrude sufficiently to attach hand), and treated with multiple coats of water-based clear polyurethane. I attached hook on back for hanging, and felt pads on bottom for standing. It is plain - not fancy, as you can see - but fits very well into the decor of a close relative's ocean-side, wood-paneled home. I contemplated adding your scroll corners - even tried them - but they looked out of place.

This clock is convertible from a wall clock to a mantle clock. Each is completely finished and drilled to hang on a wall. Each is also equipped with a base unit into which the clock fits thus converting it to a mantel unit. The base is fastened to the clock by two screws inserted from the back. The clocks, I made four of them, all utilize a large insert clock purchased from Klockit, #15344. They feature a simulated black marble insert behind the dial and are made of oak with varying finishes. As can be seen, two shelves are placed below the dial for display of memorabilia, knick-knacks, etc. The design is my own. All were completed in my home workshop.

It is the ruby anniversary. This is where your kits offer much more than the two possibilities. Enclosed you will find a photo of 10173 with red crystalline balls signifying rubies. The dies for glass are available at craft stores everywhere and work rather well for coating the glass balls in your kit. I used the gold 10173 clock but the silver 10174 might have worked better since it would not have imparted a yellow tinge to the red color.

This Vienna clock is handcrafted entirely from hardwoods. The body & door is blood wood. The door, inset, swings on two bronze hinges. Pillars, finials and the crown molding are of Walnut. The pillars were carved with a lathe and fluted for a more decorative look; were then slit with a table saw and fit over the outer edges, and the remaining pieces were glued to the rear sides. The side glasses are set up in from the inside so one can enjoy a close-up view of the beautiful movement and marvel at all the moving parts. The rich melody starts my day off on a glorious note ans is a joy throughout the entire day. Designing and making this elegant timepiece took three months, since it being a must that I create a unique home for this splendid movement. The bottom is made up of seven combined layers, each routed and fitted to create the profile. I purchased this fine movement from Klockit (the 8 day Westminster Regulator # 13037) last summer through my brother, Paul Entz, who is also much impressed with your fine movements and great service. It has been an enjoyable project and I thank you for your help and service.

Picture #1: Entire clock is hand made from top to bottom out of solid hardwoods, includes purple-heart and African Paduk. Mirrored back with hardwood stripping. Clock uses Klockit's #13055 9 tube Kieninger movement (custom dial with moving moon dial & pendulum.) (Solid brass dial) Height 90 inches, width 30 inches, depth 16.5 inches, weight 350 pounds. Clock took around 3 months to build. I'm very impressed with the #13055 movement.
Picture # 2: Clock is hand crafted from top to bottom, from solid Zebrano (zebrawood). Clock uses Klockit's #12266 movement, dial pendulum, and (marshland wings) glass. Clock is 31 inches high, 15 1/2 inches wide and 6 1/2 inches deep. Clock took about 8 days to build.
Picture #3 Wall Clock: Clock is hand crafted from top to bottom using purple-heart, cherry, and red cedar. Clock uses the same hardware as the above clock (from Klockit) except (marshland wings) glass. Clock has mirrored back which really brightens it up.
Picture #4: Clock is hand made using purple heart wood and Klockit hardware. Clock took around a week to build.
Picture #5 Mantel clock: This clock is hand crafted as well using solid wood (purple heart) and golden covered posts. Clock uses Klockit's dial & movement, looks really nice & weighs quite a bit.
Picture # 6 Caragana Grandfather clock: This clock has quite a story behind itself on how it's made. Caragana wood you cannot buy anywhere. So I went out in a big caragana brush and cut a lot of branches down, then I let it dry for 3 months then cut off the bark and somewhat made the pieces square. (Caragana branches are crooked like a snake so when cutting up the branches no piece is longer than 10 inches). Then I let it dry for another 4 months, so when I actually started making the clock the wood was finally dry enough so it wouldn't warp. (after 7 months) As you can see it is a 2 tone clock, solid walnut and Caragana. The Caragana is glued onto the walnut, there are about 2000 + pieces of Caragana all a different size and color and all cut at a different size and color and all cut at a different degree to get that round (sun-ray) look. Pillars, crown moulding, finales and leaf ornaments on top are all hand made. Clock uses klockit's movement # 13104 (very nice sound!) Side door are open so you can see movement. Making the bottom was quite a bit of work too, there were many sleepless nights and stressed out days building this clock. I think it's pretty fair to say there is probably only one of these clocks in the entire world, cause I'm probably the only person crazy enough to go through all that work. Building this clock took about a year from cutting down branches till it was finished. If I was to sell this clcok, I don't even know what I would see it for cause to me it's priceless. Well hope you enjoyed my work and really appreciate the good service and merchandise that I have bought from Klockit!

The project was made using the Wildwood Designs Roman Cathedral Clock plan. It is all solid mahogany except for the false plates which are plywood and the minor trim and clock backing which is poplar. The clock movement is a Klockit Tubular Quad Chime Movement with a long shaft to accommodate the 5/8" thickness material that it has to penetrate. Included were a pendulum and an added brass lyre. Added to the clock plan are hand painted plastic window coverings to resemble stained glass, toy doll house chandeliers on the first and second levels and purple felt for the first level floor. The chandeliers are powered with a Radio Shack 12 VDC/0.5A transformer and associated male jack and On/Off switch. The project was stained with Min Wax Sedona Red stain and covered using Min Wax clear satin water based Polycrylic finish. Since it is a hobby project, it took 4 months from start to finish (approx. 190 pieces). It was both a source of fun and frustration.

I have been buying your products for over a year now, and have seen photos of "customer clocks" in you catalogs. I am enclosing a photo here with the hope that you will consider it to be displayed in you next catalog. Although my partner & I used several of your products, stock #1556 insert is used in this clock. You may find the construction interesting, because for the most part it is all paper. The base and upper trim are chipboard (cardboard) and rolled newspaper to give the appearance of routed designs. Window panels are covered with nice paper from Thailand. Flowers, in the shadow boxes are sculpted from rolled newspaper, Q-Tips, and popsicle sticks. The lid opens to reveal a felt lined storage compartment. Thank you for this opportunity to share with you our clock made with your insert.

The body of the clock is made from a 6 inch diameter cannon ball gourd. My wife Charlotte is a well known local gourd artist and did all the artwork on the gourd and the pendulum bob. Some of the inlay is real turquoise and some is painted artificial turquoise. The clock works are Klockit parts number, 10045, 10172, 66913. The base is made of solid oak. It consists of two oval decks with mitered corners and rounded edges. The spindles are solid oak and hand turned on a lathe. The pendulum stick is solid oak with hand shaped brass collar for a hook. The pendulum bob is solid birch and hand turned on a lathe. The feet are solid brass and hand turned on a lathe. The other brass disks are also hand turned on a lathe.

I started this clock in July 2008 and finished in Jan. 2009. The clock is made of Walnut wood and veneers. The movement is #13075 - Weight Shells is #13098 - Pendulum is #20025 - the Clock Face is 15 1/2" #13125. I have done many things to make a living and for twenty years built custom furniture. Now I am doing other things. I have wanted to make a grandfather clock for thirty years and last summer I got started on this one. I saw a picture of a clock I liked and made the full size drawings for this one. The rounded parts are made with three 3/8" bending ply covered with walnut veneer. Forms were made from the full size drawings to bend and glue the parts together. Forms were made for a router to make the holes for the chimes and weights. The carvings were done on a Carvewright CNC machine.

I built this grandfather clock without using a pattern, I looked at your catalog and used the pictures of the Cheyenne and Columbia clocks to pattern it after, it has a Hermle 9 tube movement, #13088, and the deluxe dial, pendulum and weight sets. I used all red oak, the bonnet is 4 layers routed to give it depth and the top and base have oak overlays. It is 9 feet tall, 27 inches wide and 14 inches deep. I used 4 piece bevel glass set from Klockit in the 2 front doors and 2 fixed side panels, it has 3 halogen lights in the top and filigree oak cut outs on the top sides. It took me a month to build. I have received many compliments on the clock and most can not believe I built it without using a pattern, I have also built many oak furniture pieces also from my own designs, I am a self taught carpenteress!

The first clock, I patterned this case after an antique clock that I saw. I finished it off with your 12104 movement and your 66952 hands. The second clock, I wanted to build something for my grandkids. So I designed and built this case and installed your movement #12104 along with your 26001 time ring and your 27043 glass bezel and your 66952 hands.

All Clocks have your quartz movements in them. The "tennis racquet" clock is exactly 50% size of an actual tennis racquet. It measures 17 & 1/2 inches end to end. I made a collar for my veining router bit so that I could make the groove in the outer perimeter. This was necessary to recess the strings, just like a regular racquet. The numbers are half rounds to simulate tennis balls. The pictures of the other two clocks are based on your original design. What I did was to enlarge the size to accommodate the parts that I wanted to use. The bowler & golfer clocks are both 7 1/2 inches tall. If you look closely, you can see that the grain of the clock lines line up with the outer support. By very carefully cutting the circular clock part out of the same piece of wood, it's possible to do this. As a matter of fact, when I made my first clock using your design, I emailed you folks and mentioned that this was indeed possible. I have a "Cake Works" shop near me that stocks various cake toppings, which is where I buy my figurines. With the bowling clock, I cut the plastic pins so that I had a "full half", which is meant that the left over part was not a "full" half and couldn't be used. Since the pins come molded together, when I cut them apart, some couldn't be used at all, so I used three sets of "ten pins" to make this clock. The wood is maple. When I made the "golf clock", I cut some actual golf tees down in size and then cut them so that I had an actual "full half" again, which I used for the 3, 6, 9, and 12 positions. The other 'numbers' were made from hole plugs, which I 'dimpled' to simulate a 'golf ball half'. The golf ball setting on the green is a BB that I painted white. The flag stick I made from a piece of welding rod and white tape. The wood is walnut.

The Grandfather clock I built from oak wood that came from a store display cabinet. This was a challenge having to cut and plane the wood to size. But it was great to see a display cabinet turn into a magnificent Grandfathers clock. It took me about 3 months to build. The movement is your 13044 with moving moon dial face and Lyre Pendulum. I enjoy working in my woodworking shop. The two mantel clocks were made out of cherry wood. I love to work with wood and create various objects

The clock is my own design based on several models of Seth Thomas wall clocks I've observed in antique shops and an old Seth Thomas post office clock I rescued and restored years ago. The primary wood is red oak that I reclaimed from door jams I removed in a South Dakota remodel job. The house was built shortly after WWII and the door jams were original to the house. I found a similar original Seth Thomas clock that hangs in the county courthouse in Edmunds County, SD that had an etched glass design on the pendulum door. I was able to duplicate that same idea with my clock thanks to a company in Florida that creates faux etched glass decals for doors. They were willing to work with me on a design for my clock. All clock mechanism parts and accessories were purchased from Klockit & include: 12266 movement, 1009786 22" Pendulum, 20076 Lyre, 1009811 Bob, and 26089 Classic White dial. This is the latest of several clocks I've built with Klockit's help. Thanks for your varied product line and outstanding service.

I would like to submit my photos and story behind the Jeweler's Wall Clocks I crafted using the Plan #49601 from Klockit. I modified some of the plans as I wanted to keep the appearance focused on the special walnut lumber I used. I also wanted the auto night time shutoff of the chimes offered by Kieninger. I used their PS035 movement. What makes these clocks so special is the fact that the walnut lumber came from a tree planted by my father in the 1940's here on the property where I now live. We had the tree removed 6 years ago; having it milled into rough 7/8" lumber. Using this raw lumber and having it crafted to meet your plan's specifications was one of many challenges. I wanted all specifications to be exact, and I wanted to use only the family's "home grown" Black Walnut lumber. I believe the picture speaks for itself as to whether or not I accomplished my mission. I will present these to my grown children hoping they consider these a family keepsake worth preserving and then passing the clocks on to their children. I have completed two and will do an additional two as my younger children mature. Indeed, it was challenging, but I cherish the experience now that I have the first two clocks completed. Thank you Klockit, for the many excellent and detailed plans you offer. Also, a thank you Klockit for the inspiration to all of us who view your website and catalogs as you display the craftsmanship and talents of other clock makers. It is a big motivation for me to see what others can do using your plans & kits.

I was thrilled with your catalog and ideas started to flow through my mind. I have had so many clock designs to do but was stopped by lack of clock parts. Hurrah!! Now I have been kick started. I found 2 trays with holes in the center that are used to make tiered trays and some numbers. Because I had just received your catalog and everything came together as a clock!! Enclosed you will find a picture of one of the clocks. This one is now hung on a wall. The other is on a plate holder and sits on the buffet of a private home. Versatile isn't it? So with your encouragement, I am entering my clock. On to the next one after Christmas. Remember nothing is what it seems, and you imagination is the only limit on what can be a clock.

This is a picture of a 5.5 to 1 scale model of a clock that I took a picture of while in Kauai, Hawaii this past July. It's at "Joe's on the Green" restaurant at a golf course over there. The clock is made entirely out of oak that I machined myself in my shop in my garage. It's 34" tall. The base is made from marble 3/8" tile. All pieces are cut at 45 degree and glued together to look like a solid block of marble. It's painted black and brass to look like the one in Kauai.

I am a recent retiree & have returned to woodworking as a hobby now that the kids & work-life responsibilities have abated. Over the years I have used the resources of Klockit to make several of your projects from plans & components. For example, the Puzzle Clock Plan #39463 with my son when he was in Middle School or the making of a 12" dia. octagonal clock (kit #27029 or equivalent from 1997) with my daughter when she too was in middle school. These projects remain with us today, my daughters clock in her home kitchen & my sons on his bookcase. So, it was an easy transition for me to pursue this fretwork project with the assistance and advice of your staff at the Lake Geneva Store. The woodwork of this Wall Mounted 'Stained Glass' Clock was inspired by an article from the publication Scroll Saw (Spring 2008, #30, pg. 70) and completed using a Klockit 3 1/2" clock insert (#15305, Floral Arabic). The final piece measures 12"x12". Man-hour estimate of Fretwork design & cutting approximates 8 hours per quadrant; for Segmentation design & cutting approximately 3 hours per quadrant; clock insert & support frame design & cutting approximately 3 hours, Frame work design & cutting 2 hours & final painting, finishing, staining, & assembly an additional 4 hours. total labor time approximates 60 hours +/-. It should be said that the project would not have been undertaken had not the clock insert, tools, and advice of Klockit staff were not available through Klockit. Thanks for making this a very rewarding project.

This is the 1st time I have ever built and designed a clock. I am a mechanic by trade and wanted to build this for my girlfriend Caitlin. It took me four months to build without her knowing, which was quite difficult. I designed it around the clock face and pendulum that I purchased from Klockit (stock #13035). The idea of upholstered clock with drawer came to me as Caitlin loves paisley patterns. I upholstered this myself with cushion and paisley fabric. The wood is all maple. I darkened the clock with paint and glaze. I hesitated for a day and thought this is not your average clock design, so I went with the paint instead of the natural maple look. I used brick red milk paint and pitch black glaze effects and four coats of satin finish. Caitlin loves her clock especially since she has a special place to put her jewelry.

I made this clock for my daughter & son-in-law's new home. It is made of oak & walnut from a pattern called Guardian Angels, designed by Dirk Boelman. The movement is your Westminster chime pendulum movement number 12247 with a 27035 dial and a 20075 lyre. I have about 50 hours into the scrolling & assembly completing in November 2009. It is a very slow process to scroll cut all of the pieces but the assembly gets very exciting as the finished clock takes shape.

I built this clock using the Klockit Churchill plans, hardware package, and glass set. During its construction over several winters, I had very good support from your technical team. The detailed & helpful instructions in the plans were of great value in making the fluted columns and the swan neck moldings. I even learned wood turning in order to make the spindles and the finial. I am extremely gratified with the final result, and can hardly believe that I actually built this beautiful grandfather clock. It keeps time very accurately. I had previously built 4 other clocks with your plans & movements for my 3 sons and brother, which all turned out very well.

I started building toys for my grandson & for a neighbor's grandson when I retired, to keep myself busy. Now I'm into building semi trucks. I try to make them look as realistic as I can; every one comes out different, keep adding things to them. When I decided to build this truck I wanted something different. I came up with the idea of the clock, barometer & the temperature. I didn't like the idea of having plain wood sides so I decided to put siding on it. I found a trailer with smooth siding on it took measurements & came home & built it for 10 months. Out of those 10 months I doubt there was a week I didn't work on it. The truck is 43" long, 6" wide & 9 1/2" high. Everything is wood except for the chrome & I used aluminum & polish it. I use popular wood. I make everything myself except for the tires. The fuel tanks & the air cleaners are hollowed out to keep the weight down. This is the 1st model that I put the windshield & the side windows in. I used 3/4" stock on the trailer. The top & bottom frame & siding is held on with straight pins that I used to look like rivets. Thee are over 4800 straight pins in the trailer, that is a lot of holes to drill & pins to cut down. The siding & heat shield for the mufflers is newspaper-printing plate. The barometer sits in front. I drilled holes in the floor & leave the back doors ajar so that it & the temperature will function properly. I used the old barn door latch to hold them in place. a piece of wood across the back that fits into a slot on each side. I made the bezels out of aluminum. It is painted with automotive paint, & as you can see all of the lights work on it. I used your catalog #16086 clock, 32004 barometer & 32016 hygrometer/thermometer.

I was on your website looking for ideas when I stumbled across the "Create-a-Clock" contest & decided to enter a clock in the desk/mantle category. To give a bit of background information, I have been a high school manufacturing teacher for the past 18 years at Kiski Area High School & have had kids make many different types of clocks. I think that a clock is a great way to teach kids about quality & craftsmanship while they are learning many manufacturing concepts. (My parents still have the 2 clocks that I made while in high school & college.) Over the past years, my students have produced many different types of clock projects from complex mantle clocks to mass produced desk clock. The clock that I am submitting is an example of what my students currently do as an introduction to automation in my manufacturing class. Students use a variety of machines & materials in order to complete this project. The clock top & bottom are produced from 4/4 black walnut. The four spindles are made from 1/2" brass & are processed on a CNC lathe & manual lathe. The clock face is made from 1/8" brass/black plyscore. Each clock face is designed & processed using a CNC mill. The movement is the quartz movement & students then have a few different hand styles to select from. Student clocks are all self designed but must be within established size parameters. The overall size has a very clean unique look with the brass & walnut complementing each other nicely. The clock may not have some of the complex features that other desk/mantle clocks sometimes include, but the automation concepts that I can teach using this project make this a great project for my class & students. Thanks for having such a contest. Win or lose everyone is a winner by getting an opportunity to show their work to the world through your catalog & website

One day in the winter of 2004, I decided we needed a grandfather clock to fill a specific corner of our living room. My better half informed me that we could make better use of he space with a curio cabinet. Since I had just seen a combination of both in my latest Klockit Catalog, I suggested we go for it. After a look at the dimensions we decided it was too wide. I called Klockit anyway to order the plan for it, thinking I could alter it to fit our requirements. I was very disappointed when told I could not order the plan only. I did advise the person of my intentions and that I would order the movement, dial & hands once I had my plan finalized. The answer was still negative. I then set out to draw my own plan of a grandfather curio clock. Overall height 79 1/4", Depth 14", Width - Crown & waist 20", base 21 1/2", Crown Trim 23 3/4". I used a triple chime key-wind movement #13007. A light also was installed in the top of the Curio cabinet. The material chosen for this project figured Cherry. With the exception of the 2 pieces of Walnut with 3 groves running full length, one at each front corner. Finding enough figured Cherry was my greatest concern. There are 3 glass shelves, glass in both side panels & a mirror back panel. Service doors on each side of the crown, with slotted openings covered with fabric. Movement chamber is also cork lined to dampen the sound.

Let me introduce you to my 1st clock. "Majestic Rubble" I put this clock together thinking maybe I could get in to it for several thousand dollars, but the farther I got the deeper I got. At 1st I didn't have very much into it so I kept going. Eventually I was too deep to quit! By the time I got it standing, it was beautiful. To thump the side with my hand and hear the tone it carried, it was pleasing. I'm a mason & have been for 11 years & knew absolutely nothing about clocks. (I found out that this type don't plug in!). Each step & 8 months later this is what I have. One solid rock, hollowed out, natural fractures, wind & rain carved its majestic form. Tarnished copper plated metal, Hermle 8 day cable driven, grandfather movement #13075 (flagship movement, deluxe pendulum set). 102" tall x 16" deep x 36" wide & 1000 lbs. When my wife could see that it might turn out she was reading on categories & wondered why we started with Category 6! So now we have it, The NEW traditional grandfather clock.

When we received our Stimulus check this past year, we decided to make clocks for each one of our children for Christmas. My husband, George, has made several clocks using patterns and parts from your catalog in the past. Each and every one of them has been a beautiful finished project. The clocks he made for Christmas were all very different in nature and each of our children were surprised and delighted in their originality and consider them heirlooms from their parents. They are beautiful!! I made quilts to wrap each of them in so you see, it was a “mom & pop” project of love that will last more than a lifetime. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this labor of love and we look forward to completing more clocks in the future.

The movement (13049) in the case, which is Oak finished with Danish Oil and furniture wax. We are over the moon with it. I now have it regulated to the exact time with the satellite. The case is a mixture of Winthrop and Churchill plans as the Winthrop plan was too narrow for the movement.

A few clocks I made with your 1 7/16" mini inserts. The plans came from the November ’08 Wood Magazine. I went into production mode and turned out 16 of these Art Deco Desk Clocks for family and friends at Christmas last year. The nice thing is that I was able to use lots of small scraps that I had been unable to throw away. Red & white oak, spalted maple, walnut, western red cedar, lacewood, teak, & purple heart cutoffs all went into them. I wanted to let you know what your products were going into and thank you for your great products and service.

The three jewels around the top section are bright red (did not show their color). They are same as the blue three in center section. The top blue in top section, the center red in center section and green in bottom section is reflection type craft material from Wal-Mart craft dept. as well as the colored jewels. They are glued to the under-side of wood that has those openings. It helps to give the clock some extra brightness. Made with just my two hands and a carpenter square held each piece in hand till glue sets over. I guess we have worked together for near 50 years.

I believe that the people at Klockit know this all too well - but my message is simply that myself and many others, I'm sure, appreciate what Klockit has done in their approach to selling their product. They not only make it easy, but they encourage us "Wannbe woodworkers" to be creative and do as much as we can by ourselves. I would never have attempted a grandfather clock - but with a good set of plans and the incredible support from the technical staff I felt that I had a chance. For me the idea of tackling a new project where I can be creative is a lot of fun.
Thanks so much.

Before retirement I worked as a metal fabricator. After I retired I picked up on the woodworking I hadn't had the time to do while earning a living. At first I refinished some furniture for family and friends and started building simple things.
In 2006 I thought it would be nice to build something for each of my children that they could pass on to the next generation. I decided it would be a mantel clock. I looked through books, catalogues and magazines and no designs suited me so I put different ideas together and the pictures show the results.

We had a need for a large clock to sit on top of a buffet in our living room. I designed this clock around your Kingston Regulator components (Cat. No. 35137). I wanted it to be different, therefore, It has a mirror back and a 12 volt internal lighting system to accent it at night. The clock is 24”x 16” x6”. The wood is Penna, curly cherry that has been dyed with cherry rosewood aniline dye and finished with 4 coats of clear oil & urethane wiped on and wet sanded between each coat.
I have been designing and building clocks utilizing your components for many years. Thank you for your great inventory.

My wife and I have been making fused glass for many years, and many of our customers have requested that we try a clock. Glass is not quite like wood and so this took a little planning. After searching for the needed parts we discovered your company.
Fused glass pieces can be thick when you try to create a pleasing design and Klockit had just the right length of shafts for our projects. You have many different kinds of hands so we are able to create many different designs. We have made over a dozen clocks to date and they sell very well.
This clock is mad from red Godiva glass fused on clear glass. The center square is a specialty wavy clear glass and your quirky sweep hand gives this small deck clock a real Art Deco feel.

After making art for many years (I received my BFA (1986) and MFA (1988) in studio art from California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, Calif.), I began making face clocks in 2004 by essentially turning my own art into clocks – by simply adding clock mechanisms to my paintings. Then, my idea was to devalue the elevated status of art by transforming my paintings into “mere” clocks. My earliest clocks became the subject of a newspaper arts feature written by the art critic of the San Diego Union-Tribute.

These pieces were cut and allowed to dry for a period depending on the thickness of the piece. It takes a year per inch to dry a piece of this wood. The pieces used were approximately two inches thick. After they were dried, they were sanded and finished with several coats of epoxy giving them a semi-glossy finish. The backs of the clocks were then routed to enable placement of Klockit components. Lastly the hands and numbers were placed on the front of the clocks and a piece of felt was glued to the bottoms.

This clock was designed using four different kinds of wood. The wood materials are white oak, mahogany, cherry, and koa (which is native to Hawaii). There are 16 pieces to make a circle which are cut to 22 ½ degrees. They are then each hand sanded to fit perfectly so that no daylight is noticed between them. They are then glued in place, then varnished or lacquered which ever you prefer. The clock components are fitted on to the back of the wood structure and secured in place.

I have been making clocks using found objects since the late 80’s. I like the sense of fun they invoke and how people respond to the clocks and the materials I use to make them. Some I animate by attaching parts to the top of the separate pendulum units. An example is “Babatime”, the little man waves. In others I use motors like with “Time Machine III”, the top gear slowly spins moving the chain around and spinning the clock.
I like the versatility of the Quartz movements and I can usually find a size to fit most of the pieces I make. Klockit has a great selection and I go there first when I need a movement.

Look, the doors are on backwards!
Three years ago, I made my first Grandfathers clock. I did this, because my Grandfather, who really enjoyed woodworking and clock making had passed away many years earlier, and I had never had a chance to talk to him about getting one of his clocks. He and my father had taught me quite a bit about wood working and because of that, I put my mind on building my own.
My first clock was based on a Klockit designs using Klockit parts. I didn’t buy the plans because I wanted it to be “my own”.
Originally, my workshop was down in our basement, but 7 minutes after completing my first clock, my wife politely asked me to move my workshop out to the garage. This limits the time that I can do any work, but it greatly reduces all of the dust that was flowing through my house air ducts.
In the three years since I have been building clocks, I made on Grandfathers clock, six Mantel clocks and four wall clocks all using Klockit parts. I am currently in the process of completing my second Grandfather clock. Many of the clocks are still located in my house (It’s pretty noisy around here on the hour), but I’ve also given many of them away to family and friends.
You will notice that the doors are all on backwards – This started out as a mistake, but has kind of turned into my “signature”. All of my clocks are the same way.

I have been making quilted clocks for over a year now. The ones submitted are 22.5 inches in diameter. The quilt is mounted on a masonite board that is ringed with 1 x 4 pine boards so the movement is recessed in the back. The quilted clock gives the beauty of a quilt with the functionality of a clock. Most of your clock builders are men and I would like to show that a woman can create a unique clock too. I do have to admit that my husband makes the backboards and mounts the movements. The clocks are “quilted” just like a bed quilt with batting and backing. The numbers are machine embroidered on all of my clocks.

I am Jessica Poeppelman and am seventeen yeas 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 ¼” 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.

Enclosed are photos of some of the grandfather clocks I have designed and built. 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.

This a wall clock of my own design that was inspired by many other clocks that I have seen. I built it using a Hermle 14 day gong movement catalog #13016 and dial #27905 purchased from Klockit.
The clock case was made from the fork of a White Oak tree that I cut down when clearing a small area in my brother’s back yard. After a new chain saw bar to replace the one the tree bend and a lot of ribbing from the sawyer that sawed the seemingly worthless wood and a few years of airdrying I finally planed and joined the wood to size. Wanting to show my brother how proud I was at his hard work in getting his own business started after 10 years of working for a large chain store I decided to make an advertising wall clock that he could appreciate. As I mentioned the case was made from one tree but not wanting to ruin that I also made the trim and all the brackets and supports out of the same wood. The dial back and the back cover of the clock were made of ¼” Birch Plywood.

The idea of building a clock hatched during the winter months. Originally I was simply looking for a wall clock to put in the family room, but after seeing the prices for what looked to be some well constructed products, I decided to attempt to build one myself. I have built many pieces of furniture over the last 5-7 years but no clocks and didn’t think this should be too difficult. I was looking for a Chime movement and at least 7 days between winds. The clock was designed around a Klockit #13047 Hermle movement and #26411 Dial. Incidentally, it was one of the movements on your website which didn’t have mounting details available for download. I made a phone call to your service department, which provided some basic information, (friendly and helpful folks you have!) and went from there. A few weeks of sketching, and fairly satisfied with a possible design, I ordered the movement and then waited for it to arrive so I could fill in the exact dimensions. The wood was obtained from a coworker who had felled a black walnut tree in his yard and had it rough sawn and dried.

Handcrafted of hard maple, the case of this kitchen wall clocks is an original design that was completed with several wood turnings and other features that were sometimes modified as the work progressed. The light maple finish was selected to match existing maple kitchen cabinets. The clock utilizes a 14-day coil-gong movement which was modified slightly to operate with a somewhat larger coil gong. The clock keeps excellent time, and the sound is great.
Note that the movement and the dial were purchased from Klockit, and the large coil gong was scavenged from a collection of old clock parts.

I have used your kits to build all my nieces and nephews clocks for their wedding gift. I have always wanted to build a wall clock that looked like a wrist watch. When I heard that another nephew was getting married this year I figured the time was right to design my own! Once I started I received your catalog featuring exactly what I was looking for but too late for this project. I made it out of a single board of Cherry wood and is 5’ tall.
I finished it with a few coats of tung oil. I outfitted it with your (12161) 6 melody quartz chime movement and the (26915) Roman Antique Parchment 9” dial. Since a wrist would fit into the wood ring I built for it. In the links I added a Hygrometer (32127), Barometer (32128), Thermometer (32126), and a Tide Cock (15670) since the nephew lives in the Seattle area. Even the wind-up knob turns.
I truly enjoyed this project and thought I would share it with you.

My clock is a little out of the ordinary. It is a wall hanging that I named “Chasing the Years.” I used the reverse clock movement so that time seems to be running backwards. It was inspired by my own mid-life crisis, reflecting on my life as my kids grow up and move away. Clock faces are flying out of the clock. Numbers are falling off the calendar. And of course, clock baby is hanging on the door holding the keys and wearing running shoes. The background fabric has time related quotes and is quilted with the shapes of clocks and hourglasses. There is hand beading including a beaded fringe on the bottom with charms that represent different stages and interests of my life.

It’s been a real pleasure working with all the knowledgeable people at Klockit for the last 15 years. After retirement I thought life would be a bore! Not so, as Klockit found it’s way into my life. It didn’t take long to get hooked on clock making. Fortunately, I found each clock to be a new adventure. Thru the years while receiving the “Klockit” catalog I would see the picture of the “Lyre Wall clock” and wonder if I could possibly put together such a beautiful piece. Finally I took the plunge, bought the plans, and enclosed with this letter you will see a picture of the product. The only change I’ve made is a mirror replacing the scroll work at the bottom.

My wife’s (Marsha) hobby is scrapbooking and her hobby room is called a “crop shop”. So, I designed and built this wall clock for that room. I used a Klockit standard quartz movement and hands. Everything else was made from scrap wood and a little bit of gold chain from my woodworking shop.

I handcrafted this clock out of oak with my own designs. It took me a short time of three months to do all work including designing. I’ve always been fascinated by clocks. I have collected them for a while now and this was my first clock. I made it in school for a project. I saw the opportunity for some free wood and tools and took it. I ordered the movement off of Klockit.com. It has sparked another interest in clocks for me the art of making them.

I made this clock to blend in the wallpaper border in my kitchen and thought you might like to see it. It is about 7x7 inches by ¾ inch stock. I drilled 3 inch hole in the back and turned the face of it convex then covered the face with the border paper to match where I intended to mount the clock. I painted the numbers and hands white as the gold did not show up well at all. The white isn’t a lot better but will do what I intended.

We bought this farm back in 1987 (Fall) but never really did anything until the Spring of 1988. Lots of clean-up. We built our first Gift Shop in front of the Historical Colony Barn that was here in the early 1930’s. We had wolves/hybrids as pets then in 1988 till early 90’s. We built the New Log Cabin Gift Shop moved in that building October 2000. We’ve been raising wolves as a Tourist attraction and educational experience to let people know what they really are. The clocks are one of Alaska made in the USA items we make besides the beaded/porcupine earrings, oil landscape paintings, totem poles, bear carvings and much more that we do ourselves. We have been working hard since we got this farmland for the past 21 years now.

I have noticed in your catalogs some pictures that your customers have taken of some unique clocks that they have made. I am sending you a picture of the latest clock I made from your great catalog. I used a calendar movement plus the weekly date dial and movement in one wall hanging case.
We senior citizens have trouble with the day and date sometimes. This hangs in my breakfast room so I see it every morning. It’s a great help.

Enclosed is a clock that I made to mount in my shop. A long time dream! The shop has 16ft. Ceiling so you can see that the pendulum is about 14' long with an old tractor wheel weighing several hundred pounds. The top clock face is an old implement wheel. The time piece is battery operated, ordered from Klockit. Chimes are reclaimed oxygen bottles cut various lengths to get the Westminister Chimes effect. Mirrors are added to v shaped lugs and to the iron art work above wheel and it glitters as the pendulum moves back and forth. I am a John Deere fan, so the wheels are JD yellow -- other parts green -- and the chimes are painted gold. A fun project!! The sky is the limit as to how high -- how big -- what to use for chimes -- what to use for the pendulum weights, such as -- a Harley motorcycle -- a favorite car -- old tractor-- antique wood cook stove - whatever turns you on -- weight is not a limiting factor.

This is a piece of artwork I created while I was unable to work due to an illness. I am a high school art teacher and like to create in my free time. I particularly like to create functional pieces such as bowls, ladles, mirrors, birdhouses, clocks, etc. My media ranges from wood to clay to paper mache. This piece was created using the technique of paper mache. As with any functional piece, the idea of form follows function needs to be considered -- the clock is to be functional but yet the overall piece still needs to be aesthetically pleasing. How could I make a realistic head/neck of a giraffe into a clock? The clock could be placed on the ear, snout, or neck but it would disctact from the realistic element of the piece. After much research, the problem was solved. Did you know that little winged birds called "oxpeckers," or more commonly known as "tick-birds," pick and eat ticks off giraffes? It's nature at work! The birds feed off the ticks while the giraffes get rid of annoying parasites. The construction started by cutting a piece of cardboard for the area of the giraffe that would be touching the wall. A hole was placed in the cardboard so the piece could hang. Looking at a variety of photographs of giraffes, the neck and head were built up using newspaper and masking tape. The next step included dipping strips of paper towels into paper mache paste such as wallpaper paste, art paste, or diluted white glue. After 3-4 layers of paper towels, the giraffe was set to the side to dry. During this time the tick-bird was cut out of cardboard and the clock part from Klockit was ordered. After the bird was glued in place, the piece was painted. Small details were added with a small brush, false eyelashes were attached to the eyes (look closely and you will see them on the photos), and the clock was assembled. The tick-bird not only keeps the giraffe pest-free but aso keeps my family on time!

Richard is 78 and has Advanced C.O.P.D. with Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema. Richard was diagnoses with TB in 1989 and it took 5 years to cure him. Unfortunately, that disease left him unable to continue in his chosen profession which was as a heavy equipment operator in construction. He was forced to retire at age 62. He did not wish to sit and languish so he enrolled in some woodworking classes at the urging of some neighbors and thus began a new career that had brought enjoyment to not only Mr. Dirrman but countless number of others as he will not sell any of his creations but gives them away. Our home and our children & grandchildren's homes are filled with glorious pieces. I & my family are in awe of his abiities and marvel at what he now accomplishes given his new illness which was diagnosed in 2005. Woodworking is, most likely, the worst thing he could be doing at this point of his illness. He is on oxygen 24-7 and early on, the children furnished his woodshop with all the needed medical equipment to enable him to continue his work. The Beauty & the Beast clock was built off of a picture from a magazine and has a Klockit Quartz Pendulum movement/face with dual chimes and is made entirely of butternut wood. The clock stands 4 1/2' tall and is approximately 17" wide (excluding arms). Clock #2 has a Klockit Calendar Schoolhouse Regulator movement/face and is made entirely of wormy chesnut wood. The clock is approximately 6'8" tall. The base is 19" wide tapering up to the clock face which is 15" wide. It is 10" deep at its widest point tapering up to 9" at top. The clock was designed by both of us to accomodate the amount of wood acquired.The mantel clock has a Klockit movement/face with Westminister chimes. The clock is made of oak - is approximately 17 1/4" high and 14" wide at the top and 11 1/4" wide at the bottom; 2 3/4" depth. Door opens from front and back.

I purchased a Klockit #13045 movement kit and a #2694 mission style dial, with a wood pendulum. Using your detailed instructions "Sizing Tall Case Floor Clocks for specific Movements," "Mechanical Movement Dimensional Specifications" and "Assembly and Operations Instructions for the Hermle Triple Chime Grandmother Mechanical Movement" allowed me to build the intricate design of a clock case. The case was constructed of "old cherry" which was logged and rough plained in the early 1950's. It remained in the loft of a barn until I purchased 50 board foot in 2005. The combination of the movements, old wood and design allowed me to build what I believe to be a magnificent clock.

Last year I purchased from Klockit the plans for the "Churchill Grandfather Clock" and proceeded to build four of these clocks. Two were out of Mahogany, one out of cherry and one out of walnut. I also bought the "Flagship" movement and the deluxe dial, pendulum, and weight shell set for each of these clocks. The only changes or enhancements to your plans were, fluted columns rather than beaded, beveled glass for all glass and a carved "D" in the bottom panel of the door. Three of these clocks were given to my sons and their families as Christmas presents and the forh went to my wife. One of these clocks was entered in the "Alabama Woodworkers Guild Inc." annual woodworkers show. The clock not only won the 1st place ribbon in its category but it also won the overall "Best of Show". I thought you might be interested in this. Also thanks to your customer service and technical support for their help with some problems I had.

I want to say I love "I dream of Jeannie!" Love her bottle she lived in. I wanted something of hers from the show in my home. I created this Jeannie bottle floor clock. I am an artist by trade, certainly not scared of trying my hand in woodwork. So I started drawing on graft paper the shape of her bottle. Wanting it to be round I could not achieve that level of experience in wood cutting. But it had to be round someway and I wanted the inside of the bottle to be just like hers. I read books on how to build and how to use tools. I made a cardboard model and many of them trying t understand the concept of what my mind was thinking. I accomplished that. Went back to the graph paper to see how big I wanted the clock to be. I think about a small table one, No, I needed this to be life sized, big, noticeable. I made the clock 6 feet tall. I needed to make a pattern from paper then I was ready to buy the wood using Birch wood for the clock. I looked around stores to find my clock guts. Couldn't find what I wanted. I found your company online. Klockit I ordered my clock fixture but I wanted something else to go with the clock, I needed a pendulum to hand in the opening of the design form that looks like Jeannie's bottle's. I was struggling with the idea I had and how I was going to have the face of the clock at top and the pendulum needing to be 5 feet long. Well that was not going to work. I found you dummy pendulum I was so excited about that very clever idea. My Klockit came in I was so excited about getting started. I created Jeannie's living room, I installed a nightlight so you can see inside. I wanted the bottle to look like the colorful one. But I decided against that because it would not go with my decor in my living room. I painted it crackle finish reddish pink. I wanted something else on the pendulum, I designed her eyes like the intro of the show. Her eyes blink inside the botle. I used light weight wood for the eyes. They rock back & forth.

My son has always wanted a Grandfather clock so this summer when he & his future bride set a date for their wedding I immediately thought of building them a clock. I ordered a Hermle cable drive, triple chime grandfather movement #13044 with a a moving moon dial #28021 and a Lyre Pendulum #20042. After receiving the works from Klockit, I drew plans for a full size 7 1/2 ft grandfather clock to accomodate the moving moon dial, the movement, the chime rods, the weight drop and pendulum swing. I began at once to build the clock case for which I chose Maple wood. I worked on the project every evening before the wedding date. The clock works were easily installed using the well detailed instructions included. The moving moon dial complimented the clock case very nicely and the chimes have rich, resonating tones. I am a carpenter and I have built wall clocks and mantel clocks but this is my first grandfather clock. My son and his wife are enjoying the beautiful melodies and accuracy of their clock and I enjoyed the project so immensely I am planning to build another clock this winter.

The Harland Grandfather clock was built from your plans and components using oak. I made three changes to the plans which made a bigger challenge. First, I created dovetails on the door glass grids to hold it in the door frame, held by the glass, no glue. Second, I used solid wood for the glass retainers. Third, I made the side gable grills using solid wood rather than ply. I enjoyed building this clock using your plans and clear instructions. Since I am a decendant of a Harland family, it has a special meaning to my family. Thank you again for making woodworking enjoyable.

I inherited my love for woodworkng from my father. He got his passion from his father and so on and so on. My dad took his talents to the next level when he chose a career as a high school industrial arts teacher. I didn't have him in school, but I benefited from his knowledge with countless one-on-one instructional hours given in a well-equipped basement work shop. It was in this shop that I watched my father build four grandfather clocks out of walnut. He built his first in 1975, which still stands in his living room, and then three more - one for myself and one for each of my sisters after he retired in 1986. My father is now 84, slowing down and giving himself some much deserved rest after years of hard work. I had mixed emotions when last year he suggested that we move the shop to my house. Along with the equipment came the gently worn plans to build a Mason and Sullivan colonial grandfather clock. After a brief akward stage of equipment placement, the old familiar tools once again took on a comfortable feel in their new home. This clock is the product of seven months of evenings and weekends. I used the same techniques to form the moldings, fit doors, and construct this seven foot cherry clock that my father did. When it came time to purchase the mechanism, the pinched waste design of this clock posed its own challenges. Thanks to your knowledge, friendly staff at Klockit, however, I was able to select a movement that compliments the elegant design of the clock. I was very pleased with the end result, enhanced by the suggestion of one of your staff members to backlight the face. My dad commented with a smile, "You one up-ed me with the light." I hope that my children will treasure this clock as much as I treasure the one my father built for my family. My wife asked what my next project was going to be. With out hesistation, I answered another clock. She asked "What if I come up with a projects for you?" I winked at her and replied if it ticks, we'll tock about it.

I started building this beautiful clock while living in Conneticut for a short time. In January 2007, my wife & I stumbled upon Moore's Sawmill, in Bloomfield, CT. We acquired some beautiful, Connecticut-grown, quarter sawn, white oak from this 5-generation, family run sawmill. A short time after purchasing the state's oldest lumber mill had a devastating fire that destroyed the building that housed the lumber. Klockit's Harlan Floor Clock plan was a natural choice, as Thomas Harlan was an expert clockmaker from Connecticut after the revolutionary War. He was well known throughout New England and many renowned clockmakers apprenticed under him. When we moved back to Wisconsin, the almost finished clock arrived safely via PODS. I finished the clock in early 2008 with an 8-day, triple chime, chain movement. It is now a reminder of our time spent out east and a reminder of early clock making in our country.

This clock was built entirely from a 100 year old Lombardy Poplar that I had removed from my property here in Montpelier, Idaho. While sawing the tree, I noticed it had some exceptional grain quality so I had it rough sawn and stacked and air dried for three years. The clock was constructed entirely of lumber that I planed and sized from Poplar tree. I used a modified version of your Churchill model, had beveled glass cut both in the door and sides. The finish is a hard rubbed combination of teak oil and varnish. The works are the Kieninger 9 tube movement #13055. I was helped a great deal by Bobbie in your technical support department with the mechanical works.

My grandfather clock is made with Black walnut wood from trees that I have cut down. Then I took the logs to a local sawmill and had them cut into boards. I brought them home and air dried the wood for 1 year then I tool the boards and had them killdried. I designed and crafted this clock starting in early 2007 and finished in early 2008, I bought a book on how to bend wood and through trial & error taught myself how to bend the wood hat was needed for the clock, made all the molding that was required for the clock. I used Klockit movement #13044 triple chime mechanical for my clock. The top is removeable for easy cleaning and maintanance. The clock stands 81"H x 25"W x 15 1/8"D. I have designed and crafted 5 Black walnut wall clocks of different designs from the same wood I used in building my grandfather clock using Klockit Components. This is my first grandfather clock. I am looking forward to starting my next one.

In October 2007, I decided to build a grandfather clock and after some extensive research my choice was to design the project to reflect a traditional French Style architecture. The next step was to come up with dimensions to accept a cable driven triple chime grandfather movement available at Klockit. On March 19, 2008 I took a long drive from Chicago to Klockit to purchase the movement that would be used for this project. My visit to your facility was very useful in choosing the movement and received from your staff necessary infromation on building this project. The wood work project was done in 3 parts: the bottom, the middle, and the top. The top part was the most difficult to build due to the fact it has a curved top. But with some supplier of very thin and flexible wood this difficult problem was solved. The bottom and middle parts are held together with four long screws and the top part sits on the middle part using no screws at all but rest on routed guides. All the rest of the wood work is held together with glue only. The 4 hinges and door hardware are from France which I purchased on a trip there a few years ago. A note on the hinges called (Fiche a Lacet) are made so a door can be removed pushing up and pulling out with out the use of any tool. Finally the wood is all walnut purchased in Des Plaines at OWL Hardwood Lumber Co. The glass on the big door is beveled. All others are not. The movement is stock no. 13044 Hermle, decorative weight shell set 13096, Moving Moon Dial 28064, Long Lyre Pendulum 20042. This completes the grandfather clock.

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you and the customers of Klockit, a different type of clock design. This is not marquetry or inlay, but is called parquetry. It consists of putting together pieces of wood in a geometric pattern. The work is not as intricate or detailed; it is time consuming and does have its precision points. For instance, getting once piece to fit against another without any gap between them is no small task, especially when consideration must be made for the other side. Another point is the grain of the wood. Woods have different types of grain, some being more pronounce than others. The grain in some woods can be enhanced or brought out by the finished used. All the clocks are made with Klockit parts

The satisfaction I get from taking an old pallet that was thrown away and making it something beautiful out of it is tremendous. It takes a quite a bit of work to get usable wood as pallets are put together with screws and nails, but with some planning and jointing you can get some beautiful wood. With laminating and edge gluing you get useable wood. As a retiree I would not be able to buy the quantity of Oak, Maple, and poplar that I use. You will notice several clocks are from your catalogue, all have Klockit inserts, dials, and movements.

"In 2003 my wife and I decided to make six clocks from black walnut wood and give one to each of our three children for Christmas 2004. I spent two months last year cleaning and preparing the basic wood and preparing the six 12" X 72" sheets of walnut burl since a sheet is needed to trim each clock. This summer I spent four months complete the six clocks as all detail parts, moldings and sub assemblies are made from scratch. I was very pleased with Klockit’s performance in providing the movements, dials, and pendulums. I found them to be very responsive and helpful in working with me to correct a couple of minor problems and I recommended them to anyone who has an interest in clock-making. These clocks made from 135+ year old wood have ¼" thick class with 1" bevel in all openings, full mortised door locks and finished ½" thick walnut plywood backs and tops. The three extra clocks have been sold for $3,000 each to recover the cost of movements, materials, and tooling. Each clock has a brass plate inside the door giving a short history of its wood and fabrication. The same information is etched inside the lower front panel and signed."

The Klockit Triple chime movements and components with print-out instructions were superb. Construction and assembly took 3 weeks. The finish project after adjustment and readjustment finally got to tick..tock timekeeping accurate. It took a total of 12 weeks from day one. Klockit and (Deana) from technical support, thank you very much for your support. You made my day."

"P.S. This fall I will be very busy."

"We had been looking for a clock to full a particular spot; one that was not too bog nor too small, just right. When we couldn't find what we were looking for, we decided to visit your showroom and store in Lake Geneva. We were impressed with the collection of clocks, but unfortunately we still didn't find what we felt would really fit in. Since I had previously assembled one of your Atomic wall clocks I thought "Why not build one?” With the aid of your catalog I selected the dial and works, the finial, brass corner trim and the wood appliqué on the base and set to work. Since I have had some carpentry and woodworking experience it was not a difficult task and we feel the results are satisfying."

"This was an enjoyable winter project but I feel I might be getting into the clock-making business; not a bad prospect!"

Enclosed are pictures of a Tambour clock I finished around Christmas time. The clock measures 14" long by 7 1/2 high and 3" deep. The upper portion is made from 22 pieces of wood joined using cooperage. Each piece are reversed to form the outward curved extension at the sides. The front was cut from a piece of Italian crate which had been used to ship machinery to the U.S. It was 1/4 inch 5 ply and very clean dense wood. The base is 3/4” Southern pine flooring. All are pieces from my scrap bin. A piece of 1/4 plywood is glued to the top of the base in order to aid in centering the base to the upper portion of the clock, which is held in place by two screws."

"The movement is your 12012 Westminster Chimes which I was forced to mount upside down. The dial with Plexiglas and bezel are your 27008. This was my 7th clock I have finished using your parts, and I have enjoyed dealing with you.

"I had been nurturing this black walnut tree for some 20 years, hoping that it would eventually produce some fine, quality wood for a woodworking hobby, which I had always dreamed of having the time to pursue. Once cut down and sawn into planks, the challenge became to decide how to create an heirloom-type project that all 5 of my now-adult children would appreciate, have use for, AND have the incentive to preserver and hand down to future generations. Klockit's vast array of clock styles and sizes gave me the opportunity to narrow that choice down to the schoolhouse style clock as being very unique, bet yet able to fit all the kids' decors. Since it was to be my first fine woodworking attempt, I built one prototype clock first, to work out techniques and mistakes. That clock will remain mine. I have also included a sample of the certificate of Origin written for each clock."

"For many years, my dream was to own a Grandfather clock and one the first things that came to my mind when I retired from the workforce was to build my own. Over the years, I built a great amount of furniture such as a rocking chair, coffee tables and cabinets, but tackling an item like a Grandfather clock was something I was a little worried about. With the encouragement from Klockit and with some good information from them, I was able to obtain the plan and start my dream.

For some years now, I have dealt with Klockit on various small projects and at all times very satisfied with their intelligent staff in both customer and technical services."

"When my Grandson got married I told him as a Wedding present I would build something for him and his new bride. They decided they would like a Grandfather Clock, so at my request they looked through the Klockit catalog and chose the Samuel Grandfather Curio. They were very pleased with the result and it now proudly sits in their new living room.

Building This clock sparked an interest in building other smaller clocks of which I have built several. I rely on Klockit hardware and movements for reliability, and service dependability."

The cabinet itself only took a week to complete. The finish however took just as long for I gave it three coats of rubbing varnish to get the patina I wanted. It now sits in the entrance foyer of my daughter's home in Illinois."

"As a woodworking hobbyist, I have made many music boxes and clocks for family members over the years using Klockit's products, including three beautiful Grandfather floor clocks. This year I was feeling especially ambitious and decided to make clocks for my eleven grandchildren as Christmas gifts. By modifying a few of Klockit's plans, I was able to create a different clock for each one. This was a fun project for me and resulted in some special keepsake gifts for my grandchildren. I look forward to each new Klockit catalog offering so many creative ideas to work with."

"I would just like to thank everyone I dealt with at Klockit, they were all friendly and informative.

I never built a clock before. I wanted a Mission Style Grandfather clock, but I couldn't find plans with the look I wanted so I drew up some plans myself. I used all quarter saw white oak, mostly 8/4 and 5/4 thickness, it is a very heavy clock, about 160 lbs. All the joints are true mortise and tenon in traditional mission style. I used a process of darkening the wood called fuming and then protected the wood with tung oil. I selected the same movement package as the Norm Abram clock."

I would like to tell anyone that my be planning to build a clock that when you set your tools, you can cut 5 pieces of material just as easily as you can cut one. So build 5 at a time and the break that KLOCKIT gives on the purchase of 5+ is great savings."

Ernest Schmidt designed an original clock in the shape of a Monkey Wrench.

"I wanted to make something different for my Son-in-Law, and one day while he was visiting in my shop he casually picked up a 8" Monkey Wrench. He remarked as to the advances manufactures had made in hand tools over the years. I thought, now there's an idea."

The Wrench is 1½ times bigger than the 8" original. The main body is Cherry, the screw that operates the jaw is Black Walnut, and the handle is Myrtle wood. The clock is the Prestigious World Clock From Klockit.

"It occurred to me that this clock when finished would be an ideal heirloom to pass along on through the family. The completed clock represents many hours of detail sanding, routing, staining, and varnishing. Klockit's dial with glass and hinged bezel, and quartz clock motor were ideal for this project."

Currently Jim is working on musical jewelry boxes for two of his Granddaughters using Klockit's music movements.
