Hi Frank,

Happy to report I´ve finished my clock and am delighted with it. Many thanks indeed for your advice which I was very pleased to follow. The vhb tape was wonderful and allayed all my concerns over the joints on the door. I wanted to use laminated glass but that only came in 6mm and I didn´t want to risk the weight. I used 4mm toughened instead and that was still a quite heavy, but using the tape helped no end. I followed your suggestion to connect the gong rods directly to the back panel rather than make a sounding board. I had always intended to make the back panel thicker after seeing what had been done on some antique models. Your suggestion looks good and the sound is terrific.

 The most trouble I had was with bending the ply for the top panel. I had hoped to laminate this but I had very poor results with my attempts at gluing veneer. Some practice needed there.  I eventually bent some 4mm walnut faced ply over a jig whilst steaming it from below. I thought the crown moulding would be challenging but it was quite straightforward in the end. I made it in three three quarter inch layers, and cut the mitres on a custom made jig.

I´m very happy with the colour and the finish. I used a weak solution of walnut dye to colour up the sapwood, followed by two coats of Danish oil to bring out the grain, two coats of shellac sanding sealer, and two coats of French polish applied with a mop, and then the whole rubbed out with wax and 0000 wire wool. I didn´t want a piano finish.

Thanks again Frank, and my very best wishes,

Kind Regards

A wall clock in salvaged ship yard Mahogany

Phil Smith - Bradford on Avon - England.

Hello again Frank

I designed this clock using a rudimentary CAD package and I incorporated ideas on proportion and techniques from my first clock which was constructed using (mostly) one of your sets of plans.

It is fitted with a PS 055 Vienna movement set with a 65cm pendulum.

The case is made from rejected mahogany from a boat restorer and I´m quite pleased with the slimline look. The case is 970mm high by 280mm wide and very heavy. I was surprised by the weight of the 4mm thick glass. The finish is water based satin varnish.

The case would take a 72cm pendulum which appeals to me as I like the slower tick-tocks.

The chime is deep and sonorous which I guess is due to the longer case favouring longer wavelength standing waves. Yes I was once upon a time a physics teacher!

Best regards,

Phil Smith,

Bradford on Avon

The Grandfather Head Table Clock

karl_stone_gfh_table_clock_1.jpg karl_stone_gfh_table_clock_2.jpg

Karl Stone - Medina - Ohio - USA

The movement of this clock is the Kieninger REC004, nine-bell Mozart Limited Edition. Two of the chime melodies are Mozart, and the third is Westminster.

The dial is the Kieninger 200 x 275 mm Special Calendar Dial (moon and date) with brass Roman numerals on a silver chapter ring and a subsidiary seconds dial.

Chime melody selection and strike silencing is performed with two rotary levers on the front of the dial.

The dimensions of the case are 17.5”(h) x 12.5”(w) x 12.5”(d). The case is red oak stained red chestnut. The glass door is 1/4" thick, while the sides and top are 3/32” thick. The hardest part of the assembly for me was installation of the glass in confined quarters. In a second build of this clock, I would make the top glass frame easily removable from the rest of the case for easier regulation and access to the movement. Still, a special bent-coat-hanger tool allows adjusting speed without removing the movement, but you have to bend it just right!

One Curvaceous Wall Clock

Karl Stone Medina, Ohio, USA

As the name explicitly states, this is one curvaceous wall clock! I just about always show folks my mistakes, because I relish getting myself out of problems of my own creation. Well, this clock is one big mistake!

When I ordered the Kieninger TS-002 movement (65 cm pendulum), I assumed that, in changing the pendulum length from 116 to 65 cm, Kieninger had re-proportioned (shortened) the drive weight drop to approximate the shorter pendulum length. So I threw in a few extra inches, over the pendulum length, for the weight drop and specified a 33” tall curved display glass. Wrong!! It turns out that the drive weight drop is a full 14” longer than the pendulum length. So, I decided to employ a fix, a version of which I proudly displayed on an earlier “arched floor clock” lower on this page. That fix was a pendulum well, as I needed to add 2” for a pendulum that turned out to be longer than I planned. The current fix is a weight well, which is a prominent feature of this curvy clock.

The weight well is 3” in diameter to accommodate the 2”-diameter weight. Once I decided that the weight well would be circular to match the curved display glass, it was easy to decide that I would use (abuse?) circular curves everywhere else.

The wall clock stands 53”(h) x 12”(w) x 8”(d). It is red oak stained medium golden oak. For better or worse, you’ll never see another clock like this one!

Curved-Glass Wall Clock

karl_stone_curved_1.jpg karl_stone_curved_2.jpg

Karl Stone - Medina - Ohio - USA

The movement in this wall clock is the Kieninger NS003 precision miniature weight-driven movement. It has several ruby bushings and adjustable escapement pallets—quite impressive at such a small size. This movement, along with the carbon-fiber-rod pendulum, should be quite accurate: We’ll see with time! The wood is cherry stained light walnut.

The dimensions of the case are 25”(h) x 8”(w) x 5”(d). The hardest part about making this clock is finding a glass bender who will supply the tight 3-1/2” radius bend in the 1/8”-thick glass. It seems that the glass suppliers are afraid of optical distortions at tight radii. I finally found a bender in Vancouver, BC, Canada who did the bending confidently and beautifully.

Glass Dome Rose Mantel Clock

karl_stone_rose_1.jpg karl_stone_rose_2.jpg

Karl Stone - Medina - Ohio - USA

This clock is more a crafter’s delight than it is a clock cabinetmaker’s pride and joy! However, the end result of this beautiful, little craft project is a seriously accurate mantel clock with a miniature spring-driven movement.

The clock is 10-1/2”(h) x 10”(w) x 6”(d). The glass dome, which is supplied off the shelf from a home decorators’ supply, is 8”(h) x 8”(w) x 4”(d).

The movement is the Kieninger NE004 miniature, featuring a full-jewel Swiss chronometer escapement—very accurate. The dial is intended for the NS003, which is the weight-driven cousin of the NE004. So, the dial required two modifications: First, I epoxied in/across the seconds-hole and smoothed it over with fine abrasive. Two layered, semi-transparent rose appliques cover up the seconds-time-ring beautifully. Second, the keyhole needed to be drilled out for a 4 mm key, since the NS003 is 3 mm, while the NE004 is 4 mm.

The brass knob on top is a standard drawer pull epoxied to the glass, and the brass bun feet come from a small-furniture supplier.

The only parts left to be made of wood are the base and a mounting bracket: The wood is red oak stained red. Centering the 6”-diameter dial and positioning the fully assembled thickness within the constraints of the dome were challenges, but it all came out right, first time, just as the paper layout said it should!

Karl Stone

A table clock fitted with the Kieninger J0221C movement and multifunction dial.

karl_stone_multi_1.jpg karl_stone_multi_2.jpg

Karl Stone - Medina - Ohio - USA

The obvious highlight of this clock is the Kieninger J0221C movement with its beautiful multifunction dial, including seconds, date, day, month, and lunar calendar.

The three separate chimes are fast, soft and unique in sound. The spring power goes through a fully jeweled Swiss chronometer escapement: It’s as accurate as a spring-driven movement comes. Nothing left to do but display the movement prominently in a simple case!

The wood is red oak stained light orange-brown. The one-piece top lifts off and has 3 panes of glass and a back mirror, all 3/32” thick. The dimensions of the case are 12”(h) x 8-1/2”(w) x 7”(d). The frame pieces are 3/4” x 3/4”, making the mortise-and-tenon joints, as well as staining/finishing (with glass), a bit of a challenge.

It is not as slick as the Kieninger clock it is modelled after, but it’s all mine!

Donald Wyllie - Bedford - Canada

So, it is a Kieninger RWS 39 - 116cm movement and accessories from Oakside´s Set 29. The case is Honduran mahogany and based loosely on the design in Greville´s catalogue. The top and bottom doors are hinged while the middle door is lift and remove. The back is birch ply with Honduran veneer inside and out. I cheated and used vacuum bagging rather than animal glue as I should. All the mouldings are home made. It is finished in shellac and wax to give it a used look.

Frank - Attached are some jpg´s of one of the two nearly identical wall clocks I made to house the RWS movements you provided. The wood is all walnut with the back and top panels of walnut faced plywood. Glass is all beveled and tempered. The case is 48 inches tall, 8 -1/4 inches deep (back to front of arch moldings) and 13-3/8" across the top moldings. Thanks for all your help. Bob Gilmore

Gerald Hutton - Yallingup - Perth - Western Australia

Hi Frank,

Firstly thanks for your help on this clock. It is made from one plank of Jarrah (Swan River mahogany) which was milled about 20 years ago, so it is all one bit of wood.

The feature panel is Curly Jarrah. The finish is 4 coats of wipe on poly satin. I would have liked to have had the cut out face that I originally wanted as it would show the brass work better on the mechanism. If I make another, and I probably will, I will use glass on the side as well. I didn´t do it because I thought that it would be too narrow. 

I originally set the mechanism up on a board and hung it which enabled me to sort everything while I could get at it. The alignment of the chimes took a bit of work and when I moved it to the clock case I found that the screw on one side caught the chime rod, so I moved it up about 20mm, which solved the problem and made the chimes more melodious. 

I am very pleased with the results, cheers

Wall Clock in Oak by Rob Cheetham


Rob Cheetham - Kenilworth - Warwickshire - England

Frank, I have completed the clock. Attached are three photos.

It has taken a bit of time to adjust the gongs. Also the night off setting was 3 1/2 hours out & so it took a bit of working out how to get it correct.  This is now done.

Case construction was from a single plank of oak - 22mm thick. I used a circular saw, a crosscut saw & hand drill, hence the ´rustic´ construction. I glued the pieces of oak together with wooden dowels. I used 6mm strip wood to fit the 2mm glass to the sides, using screws. The Oak was finished with 4 coats of Bestwood Danish oil and then a few coats of Mylands wax polish.

.A couple of points for novice clock making customers;

a) advise them to read the Kieninger instruction manual on the Oaksider web site before ´starting´ the clock.

b) advise them of the adjustment proccedure for setting the hammers so that they alloign correctly with the gong rods.

c) set up the movement on a dummy back board to establish the exact clock case dimerntional requirements and to make adjustments to the gongs prior to fitting into the finish cabinet.

Thanks for your help. The clock is going nicely on the wall - looking exactly as I had planned & imagined it.

Regards, Rob.

Wall Clock in Ash by Graham Smith


Graham Smith - Alresford - Hampshire - England

Prior to making this clock I had made various others including couple of bracket clocks, a Venetian wall clock and a Grandmother clock, the latter two being specifically dedicated to close relatives.

About 20 years ago I planned to make a more contemporary wall clock and obtained a drawing and the necessary ash wood but somehow or another never got around to making it.

Over the years I re-visited the drawing and the prepared wood several times but never made a start on the cabinet construction.

During recent months there had been a lot of events national and international events commemorating those who had served in the last two world wars.

As my Grandfather had been killed in the Battle of the Somme in 1916 it seemed appropriate to have something dedicated to him which could be passed down through the generations.

I therefore contacted Frank and asked for advice about a movement which would fit the drawing. It turned out there was only one LRS movement which fitted the cabinet and so I ordered it and with Frank’s on going advice built the cabinet and fitted the movement.

The construction is all Walnut with a clear satin polyurethane finish.

The design is based on a several clocks I´ve seen on line and modified to my own taste. Fitted with the Kieninger HTU Set supplied by Frank at Oakside Classic Clocks - England.

Not quite satisfied with the look of the finial, so when I finish my current wall clock build, I expect to turn an improved version. Thanks for all your help - Bob G

Karl Stone - Medina - Ohio - USA

Laterndluhr Movement: Set 32 RSB 5-Bell Movement Dial: 089 Kieninger 203 mm Special Multifunction Dial Pendulum: 116 Special Carbon Fiber Pendulum with Fine-Adjust Bob Wood: Red Oak Color: Walnut Dimensions: 69” (h) x 19” (w) x 11” (d) Glass: 9 Panes; Front 3 Beveled 3/16” (t) This is, by far, the largest wall clock I have made, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to build a very accurate Kieninger-movement wall clock. I’m looking for 1-2 seconds per week accuracy, and this movement-pendulum combination should get me there. I have collected 12 antique clocks, 6 of which are Alt Deutsch style Vienna Regulators. Being partial to Vienna Regulators, I was drawn to the early Laterndluhr style and Frank’s comment on the website that the RSB is a good choice for that.

Excelent ´first clock build´ in reclaimed Mahogany.

phil_smith_1.jpg phil_smith_2.jpg

Phil Smith - Bradford on Avon - Wiltshire - England

Hello Frank

This is my first attempt at precision cabinet making let alone making a clock case! I´ve really enjoyed doing it and will be coming back to you for another mechanism and face set.

My clock was designed to accomodate Set 11 from your web page using the LSR 02 movement. The case is made from reclaimed Mahogany and is 850mm high by 350 wide by 195 deep. It has a satin varnish finish. The pendulum has a pleasingly slow movement compared to a 100 year old wall clock I´ve had for 35 years.

The clock is to go to my elder son but only when I´ve made another one.

I´ve learned a lot and made many mistakes.

One thing I´ve learned is to be more selective with the starting timber. The mahogany was from an old staircase and about 35mm thick. To get this to a usable size was hard going with my tools which were more geared to kitchen and bathroom renewal!

Regards, Phil Smith.

Terry Richardson - Christchurch - New Zealand

Frank,   As promised i attach pictures of my finished clock.   This incorporates the HTU movement which I am very happy with.   I used Heart Rimu (a rare native timber to New Zealand). My 30 year desire to build from this timber is now realised. I like the colour and grain, although it is difficult timber to work with. It is a hardwood – hard on tools, and has a tendancy to move from day to day and to split. For example, I bought the new kiln dried timber a year ago and it sat in my workshop for 9 months. By this time half of it was unusable due to warpage. Getting things straight and square was a challenge (among the many). The cabinet took 3 1/2 months to build (a good winter project given the sun reaches the workshop at 10.30 to 11 am)   I mainly used the plan by Pieter Van Vliet which was accurate and comprehensive. There was no way i could complete the project without this guidance. I am very grateful to him for the guidance of the plan. Like some others I made the hood roof from laminated Ply veneered in Rimu. It is finished with satin polyurethane.   I really want to thank you for your help and advice in the early stages of construction.   I would particularly like Pieter to know how grateful i am for his excellent plan, but unfortunately i cannot find his email address. I would be grateful if you could forward this to him or better – send me his email if acceptable so i can thank him myself.   I wish you all the best for your family and business. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and your company.   Kindest regards   Terry Richardson

Hi Frank You mentioned some time ago that when clock was finished you would like some pictures of it, so here are a few, showing it in its new home. It was a pleasure to build, I altered a few things the main one being that the hood is fixed to the top and not removable as it is easy to remove the movement from the front if need be. The swan necks were made using carving software on my cnc mill.

An excelent ´First Build´ Vienna Regulater by John Steward using Plan 016.


John Steward - Bishop´s Stortford - England

Hi Frank

Please find attached photo of my Vienna Regulator with a PS 055 Vienna movement. The case is the first that I have made and is from Oak. The finish is with fine sanding and polished with a bees wax, turpentine and linseed oil mixture. It is hanging in our lounge and looks very good. Time keeping is very good, it only needed slight adjustment. Also I must congratulate you on the way in which the movement and associated parts were packaged. Many thanks for you help.

Hi Frank,

Attached is the image of my completed clock, this is the first clock that I have constructed and would appreciate your professional opinion.

Constructed with North American white Oak, which came out a little darker than I first expected. Fitted with the Oakside Set 12 featuring the Kieninger PS 055 Vienna movement.

The clock is now running perfectly having established the correct positions for the chiming lever.

Very pleased with the out come, only wish I,d gone for the RWS movement with the Westminster chime.

Thanks for your help and advice. all the best John

Superb Grandfather Clock with the HTU 06 movement and built by Allan Gough


Allan Gough - South Wales - UK

Dear Frank The clock was crafted for my daughter and her family, to replace a similar clock that I made for them 10 years ago, which they subsequently shipped to their new home in California – keeping their home In Scotland as a UK base for visits. Due to the noticeable gap left by the removal of the clock, I undertook the construction of a replacement, albeit on a slightly larger scale. The design of the clock was based on a photograph, and drawn up on a drawing board (i will have to learn cad, maybe tommorrow !!. It is 239cm (94”) tall, 74cm (29.1/4” wide and 40cm (15/3/4”) deep, using a Keininger HTU tubular movement. I made the main structure of American Walnut, the back and top of 8mm thick ply veneered both sides. The ‘planted’ decoration is faced with Burr Walnut. It was sprayed with water based varnish and waxed. I trust the above will prove to be of interest to you and feel free to modify as you see fit. Photographs attached. Yours sincerely ALLAN R GOUGH

A superb floor clock in Tasmanian Blackwood


Trevor Jones - Tasmania


Pleased to provide information and an image of my newest creation. It is fitted with the Kieninger HTU 06 Tubular Bell Movement, Set 54.

It has been a long time coming, but is quite beautiful. I made it out of highly figured Tasmanian Blackwood with the face in Huon Pine and Ebony. The backboard is made of King William Pine which is a lovely, resonating musical timber.

I have not yet lacquered it nor fitted the glass, but it´s easier to taker a photo without glass, I think.

It is probably the most complex case I have made and is quite precise in the measurements to accommodate the large face and the tubes. I have tried to continue the art deco detailing throughout the fittings. I still need to put a small board on the sides of the movement to hide the brass works and to fit nickelled door hinges. That way everything will be bright nickel and chrome.

It has a few special features including a set of sturdy wheels at the back and adjustable feet at the front. The feet adjust from within the lower cabinet. There´s also a hinged lid on top to facilitate the fitting of the tubes from their hangers.

I´ll send another photo once I get time to finish it.

Grandfather Clock in reclaimed 19thC Australian cedar by John Clark.


John Clark - Wentworth Falls - Australia

Hi Frank, As promised, here´s a picture of the finished clock, constructed with reclaimed 19thC Australian cedar, comes up a bit like European Mahogany when french polished but perhaps a little darker. Wonderful wood that is now unobtainable. Most of this clock started life as door frames, skirting boards and the like!

Thank you so much for your help, prompt answers to questions and the timely supply of an excellent clock movement. I´m not sure it would all have happened without you.

With my good wishes,


PS I trust your son settles happily in Perth, it´s a thriving city.

Vienna Regulator in Walnut by Paschalis Zaimis


Paschalis Zaimis - Kavala - Greece

This is the case I made of American walnut. I bought Set 14 from Oakside Classic Clocks comprising the Kieninger RWS13 -65cm and the Vienna 20cm dial and following your dimensions for the case I have no problem for the installation. Finally I decided to change the original Vienna hands with Breguet Hands because with the Vienna we had a meeting every time to decide the time. Once again I would like to thank you for your help and advices.

Dempsey´s design Grandfather Clock with HTU 06 Movement


Chris Redfearn - Halifax - England

Chris Redfearn from Halifax in the north of England sent Pieter the following email.

I came across your site via Oakside Classic Clocks whilst researching where to buy a mechanism. I have harboured a desire to build a grandfather for more than 30 years but children, work and barn renovations have got in the way till this year. I was very impressed with the comprehensive detail you put on the site which enabled me to build the clock with relative ease. There are a few small differences but these are not substantial e.g my hood roof is made from several sheets of kerf-cut cherry-faced MDF laminated into the required curve. As you can see from the pictures I used cherry which I have not worked with before, but the result is pleasing and the clock is a great addition to our house. I know from talking to Frank at Oakside (where I bought the mechanism) that he wished me to send you some pictures of the finished clock and I had in any case intended to do so because your site is a great resource.

In my reply to Chris I said, "Your grandfather clock looks great and looks like a carbon copy of mine, which is of course not surprising as you used my drawings. I have never used cherry, but your clock has a nice warm look." Chris also allowed me to publish pictures of his perfect looking grandfather clock. Thanks Chris.

New England Windsor style floor clock by Douglas Kuntze


Douglas Kuntze - Ottawa - Canada

Hi Frank -- I bought a Kieninger PS055 kit from Oakside in 2009. The attached link is on my Picasa website and contains some pic´s of the finished clock (minus the glass for the case which I´ll get next week). The design is based on some previous clocks I´ve made, but a floor standing model this time and with a bit of a New England windsor style. Had to get some other projects out of the way to get to the clock, but I´m pleased with the outcome and the Kieninger mechanism is beautiful.

Wanduhr von David Moore


David Moore - Birmingham - England

Arts and Crafts Wall Clock built by myself from Plan 021 and incorporating Set 10a from the Oakside range. I constructed this clock from White Oak, and modified the original drawing to match the style of the other furniture. The face is brass sheet, cleaned with 0000 wire wool then I used a blacking agent that I use to back lead on stain glass windows. I drilled the hole with a brad point drill, normal twist drills tend to drill egg shaped holes in thin sheet. The buttons on the face were made form Purple Heart shaped on a shooting board then glued to the face with Araldite.

A fine Columbia style grandfather clock from a kit purchased from a U.S. clockmaker supplier.

For this clock I selected the very finest mechanical movement available - the Kieninger HTU 06 with 9 brass chime tubes - this was purchased as a comprehenesive Set from Oakside Classic Clocks. I also used the Oakside 070 Special Reproduction Silver Plated Moon Phase Dial which greatly compliments the case and chimes. I placed a back light at the top of the movement which allows for the beautiful pendulum and chime tubes to be viewed and accents the true beauty of the entire clock. Thanks Oakside for helping me create another heirloom. Bruce Peterson

Sean McGarry - Portglenone - Co.Antrim - Northern Ireland

From an early age I have always loved working with wood making all types of items as a hobby. Most recenty I have developed a passion for Grandfather clocks. I decided to make a clock some years ago and have not had the opportunity to make anymore since. Now that most of my family have moved on and settled down I wanted to make them something that they could look back on and remind them of me in years to come. 3 clocks later they all have their new time pieces in their family homes. Each of the clocks were made from white Oak, with some of them stained and some natural. I kept the same design for all 3 clocks, and the movements were Kieninger SK 012. I want to thank Frank at Oakside Classic Clocks for his patience, advice and helpfulness whilst building the clocks.

Ich möchte zur Weitergabe an jedem meiner Kinder ein Erbstück und ich glaube, dass handgemachte mechanischen Uhren ist eine gute Möglichkeit, dies zu tun. Die Walnuss Holz stammt vom Baum ihres Großvaters in den 1930er Jahren auf dem Gelände unserer Heimat hier in Illinois, USA gepflanzt.

Wir gehobelt das Holz zu 3/4" (2cm) Dicke und verwendet einen Plan von einem US-Takt Zulieferer Ich fühlte, dass das Erbstück würde mehr sentimentalen Wert haben, wenn ich den Fall einfach gehalten, ohne Knöpfe und Unordnung Das Nussbaumholz und. seinen Ursprung waren meine höchste Priorität, mit einer schönen Uhr und Bewegung, dass der Fall ein Kompliment. ich die Nacht Abschalt-Funktion und eine Bewegung, die von höchster Qualität sein würde wollte, war die Kieninger PS 037 eine perfekte Lösung. Mit der Hilfe und Führung von Oakside Klassische Uhren, fand ich das beste Spiel für meinen Fällen.

Danke Oakside!

Ich sah zuerst diese Uhr in einer Möbel-Magazin, war es geplant und gebaut von Tom Kealy einem zeitgenössischen Möbelbauer aus Somerset. Ich sah dann das Original in einer Möbelausstellung und wurde von der Eleganz des Designs und der Qualität der Konstruktion fasziniert. Es inspirierte mich dazu, eine Kopie für mich selbst machen. Ich bin ein pensionierter Ingenieur Automobil-Design bis unter die Holzbearbeitung auf meiner Pensionierung vor 10 Jahren getroffen, so bedeutete dies eine ziemliche Herausforderung für mich. Ich habe Tom Kealy Design allerdings etwas kleiner und weniger kurvig, aber meine eigene Methode der Konstruktion. Es amerikanischer weißer Eiche mit einem Grat ist aus Eiche furniert Gesicht Einbeziehung Ebenholz Einsätze für die Ziffer Marker. Die Oberfläche ist 3 Schichten der dänischen Öl-und eine endgültige Wachsschicht. Ich konnte niemanden finden, der zeitgenössischen Händen gemacht, damit ich meine eigene aus amerikanischem Nussbaum gebeizt Ebenholz und hielt sich an die ursprünglichen (leicht modifizierten) traditionelle Händen. Nachdem recherchiert mechanische Uhr Mechanismen, ich schließlich auf die gute Qualität Keininger RWS13 Bewegung unter Einbeziehung einer 8 Stabgong Westminsterschlag. Ich baute ein Streifen von LED´s in den oberen Teil der Uhr, die automatisch auf, wenn die Seite geöffnet wird zu beleuchten und markieren Sie das prächtig entwickelt Bewegung geschaltet werden. Ich wusste nicht halten eine genaue Aufzeichnung der Bauzeit aber ich schätze es auf ca. 300 Stunden über 8 Wochen, viel von jener Zeit war verbrachte Bau Muster und Jigs und dachte, wie auf der Erde zu machen. Es hat wohl meine schwierigste Projekt, sondern auch meine lohnendsten.

Ich bin im Ruhestand und ein ernsthaftes Hobby Schreiner während der langen Wintermonate in Westkanada. Von einem frühen Alter bewunderte ich und wollte eine Großvater Standuhr haben.

Mit einem arabischen Mondscheibe und eine Lyra Pendel mit 10½" Durchmesser Messing poliert bob mit einem 14" Swing Ich wurde auf die Clock-Design beginnen.

Ich entschied, dass die Winchester Großvater Standuhr von Oakside Classic Clocks der Stil, den ich wollte. Also habe ich "ausgeliehen" das große Winchester Bild aus Oakside und mit Kieninger HTU 06 Uhrwerk als gegeben, habe ich die Uhr und zog die 2-dimensionalen und 3-dimensionale Pläne zu meiner eigenen Großvater Standuhr bauen. Wie die Zeichnung Tool, das ich verwendet DesignCAD 3D MAX V20.0.

Das Uhrengehäuse ist aus massivem roten Eiche gebaut, gebeizt in Eiche mittel, und beschichtet mit drei Schichten Clear Satin Acrylurethan Lack. Die Kapuze ist abnehmbar. Die Taille und Kapuze verfügt abgeschrägtem Glas an den Seiten. Die Abmessungen der Standuhr sind: Höhe 83¾", Breite 24¾", Tiefe 14¼".

Es dauerte 205 Stunden auf die Uhr Fall bauen. Um die detaillierte Projektbeschreibung mit Zeichnungen, Material-Liste, Bilder, und "Was ist schief gelaufen", besuchen Sie meine Website.
