I’ve always loved these open framework wooden clocks. They seem like ideal CNC projects, especially if you are set up with a CNC router. Friends are constantly asking me what I make with all the machines in my shop and when I answer that I mostly make more tools, they’re always disappointed or at least puzzled. One of these would be an ideal thing for a non-CNC person to relate to.
Check out some of Clayton Boyer’s designs:
This one is called “Space Time Continuum“…
“Celestial Mechanics” can track many astronomical events…
“Simplicity” is the easiest design Boyer offers…
I haven’t actually seen the drawings you can order, but the clocks sure look like great projects. The plans are not expensive–“Simplicity” lists for $37. If anyone reading has experience with Clayton’s plans, drop us a note and let us know what you thought.
And, if you like gear work, be sure to also check out Georotic Gear Design Software. It’s great for designing projects like these.
