Rick's Wood Gear Clocks

Featuring The "Oak" Clock Plans

 

                                                            

The "Oak" Clock features a squirrel that "flies through the tree-tops" as the second hand moves!  It is not only unique and interesting, but it also keeps perfect time, just like all of our clocks! Please note that the "oak theme" is prevalent throughout the clock -- the "hands" are oak branches, the "face" is a leaf pattern, and there is an acorn on the end of the second hand, opposite the squirrel!

This clock is more detailed than the trainer clock plans and requires finer, more precision cutting skills, especially when it comes to cutting the gears.    

The plans are "full-scale," ready to use as cutting templates, so you only need to tack-glue the templates to wood and cut them out!  It's that simple!
