Grandfather Cuckoo Clock

Carefully selected , well - stored linden wood is used for the carving. The wood is dried an additional 2 - 3 weeks in a drier installation. The wood is then planed smooth and the pattern for the clock is drawn. The rough outlines for the carving, made by the fret saw can be seen in the photos below. Years of experience with solid wood, along with expert handcraftmanship guarantee high quality processing in every detail.

After the wood is prepared by the fret saw, it is given to the woodcarver who gives it its final shape. Each carving has its own distinct personality, because it is finished by hand.

All parts of the clock must be carved so that they fit exactly when the clock is put together. In the picture, both carved and uncarved pieces can be seen. After staining and lacquering, they will be assembled into a cuckoo grandfather clock.

The clock shown to the left is on display in our shop. There was over 200 hours of carving to manufacture this clock. There is even carving behind the leaves! Four hand painted wooden figurines rotate on the hour. Like other Grandfather clocks, this one requires rewinding every 8 days.
