Clayton Boyer Clock Designs


Floating Wheel

I call this one the "Floating Wheel" clock because it has no front framework, and the wheels appear to be floating in space. This clock has solid wood wheels made of a local hardwood called Kamani. Kamani is a dream to work with and has a warm, deep luminescent quality. The plans show how to make these solid wood wheels, however, Baltic Birch ply can be substituted. The Floating Wheel clockworks measures 10 inches high and 11 inches wide. Overall, with the pendulum, it is 24 inches high. She has a 5415 beat per hour mechanism and will run a couple days on a winding.

Thank you to Rick Broby, who sent us a video link of his beautiful "Floating Wheel" clock on YouTube:
