Trained as a mechanical engineer, I am interested in the creation of clocks with wooden clockworks since about ten years.

Through relentless research, readings, and several trials, I came to conceive and manufacture a wooden movement coupling many improvements and simplifications over the existing clockworks. Among others, I devised an escape wheel with cycloidal tooth offering ease of manufacture, movement precision and minimal friction because of contact between curved surfaces as opposed to sharp edges normally seen in the modern clockwork escape wheels. Another example: the chain wheels to wind up the weights, inspired by the conventional clockwork.

In short, since ten years, a fascinating activity, a discovery of the wooden clockwork techniques.
I have found the satisfaction and pleasure of high precision machining of this wonderful material: wood.
