This is a weight driven all wooden clock I used pommele sapele, birch ply and a bit of curly maple, took me roughly 40 or so hours to make, I didnt design this, I ordered the plans from a man named Clayton boyer.

Great clock it seem like 40 hours for a project like this is a relatively short time to build such a detailed work.
