Leonard Cloninger's Simplicity

Simplicity by Leonard Cloninger
Hello Clayton,

Attached are some photos of the Simplicity that I completed. Was fun to build. I tell people that kids played college basketball on that clock. The gears are made from the gym floor from the University of Montana, Missoula. I salvaged the flooring from a renovation back in 2001.

The large gears have 36, 10 degree pie shaped segments in them and the smaller gears are laminated flooring ply.

The clock face is also flooring.

I hope you like my clock and I'll keep you posted on my further projects. Thank you,


Wow, Leonard.  That is one deliciously beautiful Simplicity.  You are obviously not a newbie to woodworking and design.  The evidence is clear throughout your wonderful interpretation of the Simplicity.
So excellent to see all of your personalizations, too.  Seeing the clock mounted to your frame design with the Roman numeral dial in its full glory is really cool, and the segmented, solid wood wheels makes it a spectacular art piece.

Well done, Leonard!  That is truly one of the most beautiful Simplicity's that I've seen, and certainly one to be extremely proud of.

Thanks so much for sending the pix of your excellent interpretation of the Simplicity...now if you can just keep the basketball players off of it.  Ha.  You sure picked perfect wood for this - it's all well seasoned hardwood that makes your Simplicity an eventual heirloom that will be handed down through the generations in your family.

So excellent.
Aloha.  Clayton

Note from Clayton:  the large Roman numeral dial for Simplicity is an option that because of its size, is only available in the dxf format of the Simplicity plan.
