The Bielefeld Clock

 

 

 This is a clock for those who really like challenges. It is a large clock full of lavish gothic elements, including tracery windows, balconies and spires.  Once finished you only need to install the clock mechanism with chime and the hands. In spite of being so elaborate, the Bielefeld clock has no particular difficulty in its construction. During the design it was a priority not to include any unnecessary difficulty for the scroller. The clock is designed for 1/4 and 1/8 inches thick wood or 6 and 3 mm. wood, but of course it can be resized at will using other wood thickness. The back of the clock can be left closed or used for compartments. The many windows and fretwork can be covered with contrasting linen or even better with stained glass and illuminated. 

The patterns have been designed to use 1/4 and 1/8 inches wood or 5 and 2.5 mm wood. Even so, the design would look terrific in larger size. This can be attained easily by scaling the patterns appropriately. These are the measures of the clock depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Clock height Base height Clock width Base width Clock depth Base depth
1/4 and 1/8 in. wood 41,2 in 3,7 in 30,5 in 36 in 13,5 in 17,2 in
8 and 4 mm. wood 130,8 cm 11,7 cm 96,7 cm 114,6 cm 42,7 cm 54,5 cm
5 and 2,5 mm. wood 81,7 cm 7,3 cm 60,4 cm 71,6 cm 26,7 cm 34 cm
6 and 3 mm. wood 98 cm 8,8 cm 72,5 cm 85,9 cm 32 cm 40,8 cm

 This picture has kindly been sent by Ira Lund from Pennsylvania, USA: ¨The stained glass are actually real photos of stained glass printed on plain paper. The light still shines through them. I had experimented with different kinds of clear plastic, thin papers and ended up finding that plain 20 pound paper worked best. But I did have to correctly size, crop, mix different pictures to get all to fit correctly¨.
