Mechanical Lumber. Plock: Art Student Creates Wooden Clock With Over 400 Moving Pieces. Suzuki making adjustments to his 407-piece wooden automaton clock Kango Suzuki is an art student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design majoring in product design.
For his senior thesis exhibition this month he decided to create an automaton, a moving mechanical device that performs a certain task. Kango had seen automaton’s write messages, such as the one made popular in Hugo. But instead of words, Kango thought it would be fun to create a device that wrote out the time. But even Kango himself didn’t know what he was getting himself into. All photos by Kango Suzuki and Tohoku University of Art and Design The contraption is set into motion by a series of weights that push and pull on the wooden parts – an astounding 407 in total.
Kango posted the above video to twitter on February 7th, which has since racked up over 170K retweets. Kango hand-carved every single one of the wooden pieces, an impossibly daunting task that probably resulted in numerous sleepless nights. O’Clock: Wood & Cork Clocks by Okum Made.

After developing the design of the Woodenclocks Gravity escapement to the point where it was working quite accurately I had started to think if there might be something else I could do with the clock design to improve the the overall efficiency of the clocks.
I had always had problems with the gear train working smoothly and consistently, so this seemed a reasonable area to look at more carefully. By the nature of a clock the gear train is going to have to start and stop with each action of the escapement, so when the escapement is engaged, the gear train stops moving and when it releases it will start moving again, this happens with every tick of the clock. The problem here is that each engagement of the escapement involves a certain amount of friction, and two types of friction at that. Remontoire action One the ways to reduce the static friction in the drive train is to introduce a remontoire , the simplest type of remontoire invented by Robert Robin in 1772. Conclusion. Home.

Barn Owl Next Box Plan. Build a Barn Owl Nest Box. Notice: Please read all directions before beginning any new woodworking project!
Construction The important elements of a barn owl nest box are roominess (to accommodate the species's large broods) and seclusion from predation. Although barn owls have used oddest of designs, the style shown here has proven successful when placed in a variety of situations. If placed up beneath the barn's roof, there is no need to put a roof on the box.
If placed lower in the barn or in an open-topped silo or tree, a roof must be installed to provide the necessary seclusion and protection from weather. Construction is simple. Installation.
