I made this for my daughter. It is from Clayton Boyers plans #6 clock and tall case. It took about a year mainly because I hate repetitive tasks and nothing is more repetitive than cutting out clock gear teeth. It keeps pretty good time and doesn’t look to bad either. May end up getting a commercial weight.
