I have always wanted to build a wall clock. I also learned how to cut glass on this project.

Beautifully done! Did you design this or did you buy plans somewhere? where is the best place to get clock mechanisms in general? I’m a new wood worker so thanks for any help.

Thank you.
I designed it myself. I just used elements from stuff I like.
All of the clockwork came from

Good start in clock case building. Maybe you next one will be a Grandfather?? It will run a lot better oriented this way.

For lamairepr: Clockworks is a basic source but I prefer Merritts (merritts.com) for mechanical clock works. They also have the quartz movements and many, many parts for clocks from dials to springs.

I have no idea why the pic went sideways. It’s not like that on my end.
Grandfather is out of my price range. If I did one, I’d have to use an actual movement and those are out of my price range.

One way to correct the picture is to make an editing adjustment with a picture editing software program. Any program will do it. I just drug a copy of your pict to my desk top, opened it with an editing program (on a Mac I use Preview), rotated the picture and saved the change.

Yes, Grandfather movements are expensive, from a few hundred to a few thousand for those with tubes for the chimes. Other pendulum wall clock mechanical movements can vary from around $70 to $400+ for weight driven models. The longer the pendulum the more accurate time they keep with 39” being optimum.
