Future Wooden Clockmaker Reveals His Improved Simplicity

Ronnie Cramer's Grandson's Version of  the Simplicity Clock
Ronnie emails:  "Good Afternoon Dr Boyer. I wanted to show you the new design my 8 year old grandson came up with for a clock.

I have attached the file. This is his version of my Simplicity. :)

Was made out of scraps I sent him from my wood shop. This is priceless.

As soon as I can I am going to order the electronic plans for the Genesis clock so I can cut the gears for my 11 yr old grandson. :) 

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thank you for so many wonderful clock plans.

Ronnie Cramer

Ronnie, that is absolutely delightful!  I had such a wonderful chuckle when I opened that picture of your grandson's work of art.  You know, it reminds me of a clock designed by Thomas Edison for his shop.  I've included a picture of Thomas Edison's wooden movement.  It is similar in style and just confirms the comparative genius of your grandson.

Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year.

Enjoy!  Clayton

Ronnie emails back:  "Thank you. When I saw my grandsons picture, I had to smile as I was very proud. I will pass your picture and comments along that to my grandson.

I am encouraging all my grand kids to be creative and how to make stuff with their own hands. Your clocks help me do just that. I very much appreciate all you have done for the wooden clock community.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All!
