212 – How to Make a Wood-Geared Clock

For the original post with additional comments, visit our website: http://www.thewoodwhisperer.com/videos/hand-made-wooden-clock/

A hand-made wooden clock is one of those projects I like to marvel at. I’m not sure I have enough patience to cut out one wooden gear let alone the multitude required to construct a fully-functional clock! Thankfully, my buddy Rick Urschel is not nearly as impatient as I am. Several years ago, he began dipping his toes into the clock-building world and filmed one of his early efforts at making his version of the Simplicity Clock designed by Clayton Boyer: http://www.lisaboyer.com/Claytonsite/simplicitypage1.htm

While the clock itself is quick complicated, the plans provided by Clayton Boyer seem to make the process approachable. And as you’ll see, you don’t need a lot in the way of tooling to get the job done. A simple scrollsaw does all of the cutting!

So let’s embark on a fun little journey into the world of clock-building!
