I have a fascination with clocks. Okay, with
most mechanical devices! Over twenty years ago I purchased a
grandfather clock from Germany's Black Forest. It is like a curio cabinet. I got
an engraved pendulum, beveled glass, engraved weights, and a stained glass type
I have just completed my first wooden clock. It is all wood except for a few
metal shafts that the gears go onto. It is just really cool. to watch.
My wife has an electronic cuckoo clock, carved in the Black Forest.
My next purchase will be a Black Forest cuckoo clock - mechanical of course. I
am studying the various builders. It is amazing to me that the sounds, the
motion, the timekeeping is all mechanical - and they can be very accurate.
