Here are most of the tools I used. There are some things that I would suggest you use which were not available to me at the time. Such as a compass and a protractor, to make the clock face round.

Step 2:

Make a frame to hold your clock, I made a box. If you want to add a pendulum you will want to make it longer than mine.

Step 3:

well, what a fun project! I may have to just make one this evening. Ive been wanting to begin making clocks, but dont exactly have alot of $$$ for clock parts and housing. thank you!

I cannibalized an old broken clock my mom didn't want any more for the clock mechanism, so I didn't spend a nickle. When you make one please post pictures, I would love to see them.
