This Clock Making Day will teach you how to work with wood and various tools to make a beautiful wooden clock. You will learn about accurate marking out and will use the bandsaw and sander. Most of the parts are drawn from our templates. The clock itself runs from a small battery. Any of the woods seen in the photos can vary due to my stock levels but usually we have something similar in the workshop. At the end of the day we finish the clock with shellac or Danish oil. You'll come away with a lovely finished piece to be proud of!

My love of woodcraft was due to a meeting with a guitarist friend who had made an acoustic guitar. We talked about his guitar for many hours and I thought it would be a challenge for me to have a go! Well that was 6 years ago and now in 2023 I am in a small workshop in Stoke where I build various instruments. The Strumstick instrument build is a great way to get to grips with fine woodworking and is an ideal step towards acoustic guitar building. No experience in woodwork is needed.
