Made this a while back and forgot to post it. It was based off the Clayton Boyer #6 plan and heavily modified by me. It’s an all wood geared clock that runs on gravity pulling down a 5 pound weight, it runs about 26 hours per wind up, keeps accurate time to within 2-3 minutes a day.
The frame is made of tiger maple and rosewood. the gears are made from baltic birch ply. the hands are made from bloodwood. the pendulum is rosewood and maple. the weight shell is a copper tube with 5 lbs of BBs (it’s not attached in the picture)
Here is a video link of it in action when it had a test weight on it (PVC tube) and some other test parts, but it gives you the idea how it looks while working.
