If this is your first Grandfather clock building project Frank recommends you have a look at our Clocks Built By Others page for inspiration, especially the clock by Pieter van Vliet of Canada - visit his web site and you will find a complete set of plans and fully illustrated guide to building a clock in the style of our Hampshire & Winchester with photos of each stage of construction.


There is also lots of interesting information on the Kieninger Manuals & Interesting Links page.

Plan 025 -- Grand Daughter Clock


American Grand Daughter Clock. Circa 1750. Height 1510mm Width 362mm, Depth 212mm

This design is based on a clock by Thomas Claggett, Newport, USA circa 1725/1750.

The plan consist of only two sheets.

Sheet one is an outline drawing showing only the principal dimensions so a builder will need to decide how to size all panels and jointing methods but we think biscuit jointing would be perfect.

Sheet two shows all sections and mouldings with dimensions.

We have a Kieninger Dial that fits the RWS movement; it is 200mm square with a moon arch 75mm radius at that top making the total heath 275mm. The original dial door will need to be modified to accommodate this dial.

As the cabinet is very narrow, please order pendulum 083 and we will supply a carbon fibre pendulum shaft with a brass cylindrical bob.

All of the Movement, Dial and Pendulum Sets listed on this web page can be installed in a clock cabinet built to the selected plan, however you must compare the dimensions stated on the Kieninger movement instalation drawing we provide and decide if you need to make changes to any of the plans cabinet dimensions prior to constructing the cabinet.
