Various hardwoods. This clock was an experimental project to understand the clock mechanics and how the various hardwoods work together. Learned a lot and developed many jigs as a result.

Great clock, definetely need a better set of pictures so we can see the great details. The M4 clock shows great so maybe repost these pictures.

very cool clock. how long did it take to build? did you have plans and how well does it keep time?

Mike H, Thanks for your kind comments. M2 took 6 months to figure out a jig for every important cut (the gears) and about 1 month to do the cut, build, finish. I hand draw all of my own plans but, I am in the process of learning CAD and writing a book about how to build a similar clock (including the jigs I created). This M2 version runs +/-3 per day. Max
