Made very simply from oak, this mantle clock is a great addition to my fireplace. And the pendulum is just fun to watch!

Very nice, do you have any shop drawings or measurements you wouldn’t mind sharing? I’d love to build one of these little guys for my mantle :-) Where is the face/movement from?

Nice work David.
Where did you get the clock mechanism, Klockit?

Nice design David. Great workmanship too.

Bought the mechanism at my local Rockler store. About $10. Amazing. Klockit probably would have offered something more refined, but the concept was about approachability, so the price seemed just right. Thanks!
