Rick's Wood Gear Clocks

Featuring The "Wagon Wheel" Clock Plans

 

                                           

The "Wagon Wheel" clock is a definite departure from traditional clock designs.  It is unique, and it is sure to "charm" any room it is displayed in.

The clock in picture #1 above is shown without the pendulum and weight, just to give perspective.  The pendulum is 44-1/2"s long and the clock needs 4 pounds of weight to run.

 

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!
