Hello all, I’m wanting to make a clock similar to this clock. The kit is available at klockit but not the plans so I’m trying to figure out some dimensions. I purchased the movement and face, the face measures 9 3/4” and the finished Size: 13 1/4”H x 13 1/2”W x 5 1/2”D. Which tells me the top is 13 1/2” x 5 1/2”.

I’m guessing the case is about 10 1/2’ wide, 10 1/2’ tall and 4” deep.

So I’m asking if you think i’m off on these measurements? And any other advise is welcome.

Lew- Thanks, it’s a little different but hey I did not know of that website, could prove to be helpful.
Dave- You’re pretty quick and good with the sketchup, thanks! I may be close enough to do a mock up in MDF of the case to see if everything fits.
