Jeff Evans’ Wooden Clocks – Welcome!
Wooden Clocks: Hand-crafted clocks with hand-crafted wooden gears by Jeff Evans
I love Machines. I find them fascinating and beautiful. The clock is one of the first of man's mechanical creations of real genius. A machine that will run by itself at a pace so accurate, it will monitor time. Building them out of wood, to me, brings out that beauty even more. I think that because wood used to be a living thing, it has an inherent beauty which compliments and adds life to the mechanism. This art has a force and beauty in its process that has given me interest and joy for 25 years and still does. In this site you will find examples of my work from the beginning to present.

Navigating this site is fairly simple and straight forward. Among all the choices (some info about me, FAQs, purchasing info, contact info, etc) there is also a page where you can see pictures of all my clocks in one place. In addition, there are other pages where I have divided the clocks into "Galleries", including pictures of clocks I have made in the past and some that are currently in progress. From these galleries you can then go to other pages to get specific information about individual clocks (wood types, prices, and some of my rambling thoughts about that particular clock). If you wish to see my clocks in the flesh at a brick and mortar gallery, click on links for locations.
For pricing and information on this page: If you see something you like, you can also click on the name below the clock and you will be taken to the page that focuses on that particular piece.
To see additional clocks and/or to get more information about the clocks you see here, please see the "Gallery" pages.
