Flying Pendulum Clock you can build from wood

Check out this nifty flying pendulum clock designed by Brian Law of I have owned two of the reproduction clocks designed after the New Haven antiques.

Full sized plans along with instructions showing how to build the this spring-driven mantle clock will appear in Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Issue 56, Fall 2014. The clock employs the novel and entertaining 'flying pendulum' escapement. The patterns and instructions provided by the magazine are excellent and will enable you to cut out all of the components to build the clock.

Here are Brian Law's original plans for the Clock 17 Flying Pendulum with wind up spring on which the one in the magazine is based.
