Inspired by Cuckoo Clock designs from the Black Forest of Germany, Dirk Boelman has created a magnificent American version of this popular clock style. The completed clock measures 12-¾” W x 27-½” H x 7″ D. It is embellished with numerous brackets, fences with railings & posts, overlays, scalloped roof edges, and other ornate features which are further enhanced when made from various colors/species of wood. Other features include whitetail deer, squirrels, and a flock of American bird species perched on tree-like brackets, including chickadees, wrens, cardinals, nuthatches, and bluebirds, and a cuckoo bird overlay at the bottom. Pattern includes color photos, comprehensive instructions, and numerous illustrations to aid with assembly.

Another stunning clock by Dirk. All fits as drawn. Lots of detailed cutting but well worth the effort. Use a spiral blade to give a “bark” look to the edges of the tree trunks and for the leaves.
