Detailed Description

The Complete Guide to Making Wooden Clocks. Author, John A. Nelson

Nothing enhances a room's décor like a handsomely crafted, hand-made wooden clock. Whether your passion is stately grandfather clocks, timeless mantel clocks or modern desk clocks, you'll find all the information you need to create your own timepiece here in this book from author and clock collector John A. Nelson.
John's love for American-made clocks shines through as he introduces you to the history of clock making in America. You'll learn about Seth Thomas and other renowned craftsmen and take a closer look at America's favorite clocks, including the popular Regulator and School House clocks.
John then moves into the basics of clock making. Anyone interested in crafting his own clock will appreciate the in-depth information in the chapter on clock components. You'll learn how to incorporate authentic movements in your clock, or you can choose to make use of modern clock components.
In the comprehensive step-by-step photo chapter, see exactly how to build a replica of a Shaker coffin-style clock. Use these basic techniques - plus the plans, parts lists and specific information presented here - to create 37 different clocks.

Choose from these classic antique designs:
Tambour Shelf Clock

Mission Shelf Clock
Shaker Wall Clock

Or try your hand at these exciting contemporary clocks:
Krazy Klock
Balloon Shelf Clock
Triangular Shelf Clock
Three-Wood Pendulum Clock

Plus 27 more complete clock plans

John rounds out his book with an extensive appendix. A separate appendix includes an index of the woods used to make the 37 project clocks, including exotics such as cocobolo, purple heart and zebra wood, plus classic stand-bys like cherry, oak and figured maple.
