Clocks are very useful. Building your own is a sort of lost art. You can once again take pride in assembling a fine time piece. The Wooden Mechanical Clock Kit is a pendulum clock that you build yourself.
This is not a project for the faint of heart. It is not something that you can put together in an hour. This is an involved process with over 100 separate pieces. It will take you some time if you choose to undertake this project. When you’re finished, you’ll have on your hands a working pendulum clock.
The whole thing is very steampunk inspired but it’s not just decorative, once complete, this bad boy actually tells time. Unfortunately you’ll have to wind it to keep the time set correctly. There’s a reason we stopped using them. That reason was we invented a better clock. The big draw of this project is the ability to say that you did it. You could buy a cool clock that keeps perfect time but it just won’t give you the same feelings of accomplishment as this one will. The Wooden Mechanical Clock Kit is $69.99.
