I made a balancing clock for a friend last year (Balancing Clock) and decided to make a few more with some design changes. These were made from Oak and Walnut finished with Danish Oil. Again the challenge was determining the dimensions: trial and error was the best way to figure out how long to make the horizontal bar and where to mount the clock housing and the counterbalance so the clocks were stable. I also made a fixture to sand the circles to the desired diameters (see the last photograph).
