Last year for Christmas I made a Harry Potter Gingerbread House
, which was a lot of fun. Over the past year I have been brainstorming about what I would do this year and what I am came up with was a Gingerbread Cuckoo clock with working gears.
I couldn't get this idea out of my head and so I went forward and began planning and figuring this out!
I have never actually made anything with gears before, so I will talk about how I tried to figure this out and my trials and tribulations in the process.
I did a lot of clock research and amalgamated several clocks that I had seen online to create this clock. It's actually pretty big for a cuckoo clock but it kind of had to be to get all of the detail in.
I hope you enjoy the instructable, I had a lot of fun making this clock and I hope you like it too!
