I made this from Clayton Boyer plans. The wheels, pulleys, hands and pendulum bob are made from baltic birch ply. The frame, pendulum rod and clock face are made from poplar. The hour markings are pieces of 1/8” poplar dowels that I sanded flush with the face then stained then glued in place. The weights are made from 1 1/2” copper plumbing.
I cut the gear teeth with a bandsaw and used a scroll saw for the cut outs. The necessary tools were a band saw, scroll saw, 1” vertical belt and 5” disk sander, a bench top drill press and a good set of brad point drill bits. A Dremel rotary tool was very handy too.
It was fairly easy and straight forward to make from Clayton’s plans. I highly recommend this clock for a first time builder.
