I finally finished my newest clock, this is a simulated 1830’s wood gear clock works for mounting inside my clock for an appearance similar to the original. I used pine,walnut,birch, and another unknown hardwood from China for building it. I didn’t have to get to involved in accuracy with it as it is in dark area inside the top of the clock and can only be seen through two small glass windows in the sides of the clock. I just like being a little different with what I do I guess. I’m going to put the new clock on as well with some views of this piece in place. The only thing was making sure of having room for accessing the battery when needing to replace it. Most of this item is hidden so perfection was not a necessary thing, just that it fit into it’s place. I added a photo to show this item in it’s place in the clock behind the dial.

Pictures to small to see.

So the wood-works gear train isn’t the actual clock? You have a small battery operated clock driving this clock?

Yes Charles, this is just a simulated works for authentic appeal but the clocks contains a pendulum quartz clock movement. You can only see this unit from the sides of the clock through a small 1/3/4 inch by 7 1/2 inch window on either side of the clock. Sorry for the bad pics, don’t know exactly what went wrong in downloading them.
