Build your own heirloom from this Grandfather Clock Kit. Shown here in solid cherry, it has a cable-driven Kieninger movement, etched bronze dial, German lyre pendulum and a rotating moon wheel (so you'll be forewarned when it's a full moon).

The 3/4" hardwood case is topped with a broken pediment and finial. The kit includes full instructions, beveled glass and finishing materials.

For those who are mechanically disinclined, it's also sold as a fully-assembled piece.
