I built a clock like this for our home but when two of my good friends announced their wedding I decided to give them the clock. It took me several years to get around to make another but here it is. I have also built one for my daughter and her husband. It’s made of cherry with the pendulum and a date feature (on the face).

Well done! How does the date feature work on months less than 31 days? Hand adjust?

Beautiful job!!!

I love the clock. I will need to practice a little bit before my skills are good enough to produce a piece as nice as your clock.

I’ve always wanted to build one of these schoolhouse Regulator clocks. Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to it.

Nice job on the clock! Was this the kit or did you get the plan and movement/hardware? Looks great!

Cool clock.

Do you have one of your own. Or are they all given away.
