Some ex­per­i­men­tal laser-cut MDF gears. Plans are afoot to build an MDF pen­du­lum clock. Lots of things to learn, in­clud­ing the art of mak­ing high-pre­ci­sion gears. These ex­am­ples were de­signed us­ing Matthias Wan­del’s soft­ware Gear Tem­plate Gen­er­a­tor (see woodgears.ca/), and sam­ples were cut from 4.8mm ma­te­rial. The top piece was cut from a de­sign sup­plier by Brian Law’s Wooden Clocks (see wood­en­clocks.co.uk). This prom­ises to be quite an in­ter­est­ing, if not slightly ridicu­lous, project (more for its ap­peal)
