You can choose from an extensive range of clock kits available from some quite reputable, online kit sources. Most of these clocks are constructed of beautiful hardwoods like oak or cherry. Skill to complete varies from beginner to somewhat advanced since a great variety is offered. One of the most popular kits is a "floor clock" - often called a Grandfather clock.
Most Grandfather clock kits have beautiful woodwork – carved bases, crowns and doors. Many kits also include brass hardware such as hinges, polished brass key plates and doorknobs. You can even get optional beveled glass with many models.
The movements, dials, and hands are part of the package – in some instances you have a variety of choices. Most clock kits come with everything you need to complete the assembly including glue, sandpaper, etc. Some manufacturers offer beveled glass.
Take the time to accent your clockwork with a variety of handcrafted accessories!
If you would like to consider a less complicated clock to start, a great selection of other unique clock kits is available:
Desk & Mantel – including some with mirrors, chimes, and figures like football players and golfers. Wooden anniversary clocks are listed too.
Wall – including Cuckoo, Jeweler, Shaker, Schoolhouse and Regulator models.
Specialty – like a combination wall/mirror or wooden gear clock.
