This is a wooden gear clock I designed and built.  The clock was inspired by the work of James Borden.  It is a spring driven clock with a 6s compound pendulum.  I used a combination of maple and walnut finished with tung oil and varnish.  The clock hands are driven by a daisy wheel mechanism.

Here is a video on Youtube
