This handsome school clock is typical of clocks manufactured by Seth Thomas and Ansonia, which have become valuable collector’s items. The 36" × 48" plan is complemented with a detailed and well-written instruction book that contains a bill of materials, a cutting list, jig and fixture plans (where necessary), alternative construction notes and suggested finishing techniques.
The plan details both the short drop and the more traditional long drop for longer pendulums, and lists suppliers for the movement and the bezel. When complete, the clock measures 32" high (long drop) or 22" high (short drop) by 18" and 5 1/2" deep.
Skill level – Beginner.
