I have always loved wooden gear clocks. So for my birthday my wife gave me a Dremel and a copy of Scroll Saw Magazine that had a pattern for a wooden gear clock. This is my entry for the clock contest and 4th Epilog Challenge, it is also my first Instructable. So fair warned. I have had thoughts on making gear clocks to sell. If I had a Zing laser cutter then cutting out the gears would be much more precise and need much less sanding and fine tuning.
Step 1: Get a pattern
My pattern came from Scroll saw magazine spring 2011 Issue 42. You don't have to get this one It just had a good pattern and instructions.
