When I took wood working in high school one of my projects was to make a clock which was a great experience, but it really just focussed on making the wood frame surrounding the mechanical components. My son has always been interested in gears, and mechanical things, so i looked on the internet and found a site that sold kits to make clocks that were %100 made from wood. Here are a few pics of the final product. My son doesnt collect clocks, but watches. He even has a watch that is a miniature Stonehenge. You place this little pole in it, direct it north , and the shadow tells you what time it is.

then it is true? Seek and you will find! Good for you! Sure is unique. Clocks are one thing every person needs. Except for my family, t hey tell me they don't have to wear a watch as they have time on would you believe cell phone? I like things when they were simple. Doesn't require anything to look at a watch. I do appreciate I can still tell what time it is without turning something on. Happy for you Maidrite!

Your clocks are beautiful!
I love clocks and watches. I have a small collection of watches, a grandfather clock (it's beautiful with beveled glass). My mom has a couple of clocks on her wall that I will get someday, but no hurry.
