Just finished my first Kinetic sculpture. Fun project and already spoken for by one of my sons. The sculpture was designed by Clayton Boyer. He sells the design plans @ http://www.lisaboyer.com/Claytonsite/Claytonsite1.htm if you have an interest in this type of work.
I am currently building another of his designs – will post when finished. There are several people on the internet that design, build and sell Kinetic sculptures as well as wooden gear clock plans.
I painted this unit to match the décor of my guest bedroom…my next unit will be stained & have a lacquer finish to better match another room.
I have uploaded a video to YouTube if you would like to see the sculpture run…. available at https://youtu.be/dyuWL0A7qQs

Plenty cool and a great job. I have been looking at his clock plans for some time now. Fact I just at his site two days ago. Really want to get brave enough to try one.
