I wrote up my progress here: http://www.jcopro.net/2013/03/04/building-a-clock-from-design-to-not-quite-working-prototype/
with several videos. Starting from scratch on a clock is an interesting experiment, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have the patience for it without a CNC machine.
It may prove that I don't have the patience with one. I'd invite you to check out the article, and if anyone has done anything similar, I'd love feedback. I already see some possible issues, so maybe there's some things I've missed.
