working wood clock. Finally got this put together and working. I’ll eventually get around to making a cabinet for it. I wasn’t good enough to cut the gears by hand so I cheated a little ( a lot) and cut the gears with a CNC

That’s a neat clock CNC is just another extension of woodworking. That way you have good parts to start with and don’t have to change things to accommodate errors. I had to do that a few times with gears because my hand cut ones had too much clearance.

Cheers, Jim

That still takes some serious planning to knock out, even with CNC taking the load of repetitive work Tom!
It’ll be a great conversation piece when you get it into a cabinet.

I just had to peek at this project because of the cropping done for the main photo, all I saw was a sheet of wafer board 8^)

Looks like it takes patience, and it is still woodworking. Looking forward to seeing the case.

Good job. I keep watching the wooden gear guy and trying to get my nerve up to try cutting a couple of gears by hand. He makes it look easy. :)
