Whimsical Wall Clock

The exposed gears you’ll make for this mechanical clock are so fun to watch, you’ll forget to check the time.

This clock is one of the more unique projects that have graced the pages of Woodsmith. There are several reasons for this. First, obviously, it’s a working clock made out of wood. Second, you have two options in how to build it: download the CNC files, or the full-size patterns for your scroll saw. The next thing that stands out about this clock is — holy moly, all them gears and wheels. Not to worry, you don’t have to be a horologist to make this clock. It’s more like a fancy puzzle that moves and makes a charming sound once you’ve put it together.
