Cogworks decided to craft a tall clock in the style of Jesse Emory's because his was the finest American wooden works clock movement ever made. This opinion is shared by many leading horologists. In the early 1800's, Emory not only made the inner workings for his clocks, he also finely crafted their cases. Emory was an original thinker who had some great ideas to incorporate into his work. His gears were made in a way that made them strong and beautiful. After researching Emory's work to the full, we began to make improvements and came up with something that we are proud to put our name on. Our tall clocks are in limited production and make a sound investment.
A wooden works clock movement, if built correctly, self compensates for may of the dimension changes due to hydroscopic effects. We do not make ugly plywood gears or laminated hardwood gears, but use Emory's example in using only slow growth New Hampshire quarter sawn maple to craft our gears. Emory was a genius to figure this out!
