What’s new in the 2013 Fall catalog?

It’s that time of  year! Who’s ready to head to the mailbox for their new Klockit catalog?

The new fall catalog started mailing last week and should be in your mailbox this week! So a lot of customers are asking what can they expect? What’s new? Good news, my friends! Here’s your sneak peek:

1) Buy It

Don’t want to start a new project? Need a gift to give? The new catalog features all-new finished products sure to fit your need. Our favorites include the Galaxy Wall Clock, the Infinity Lights Wall Clock, and the new men’s talking watch.


2) Build It

Open your new catalog and flip to the inside front and back covers. Here you’ll find our newest clock kits and woodworking plans. Our product designer recommends adding the new Set & Forget Plan, Sterling Kit and Slide-Top Chest Plan to your project list!


3) Restore It

Last but not least, we have some new items for the beginner and experienced clockmaker looking to do some repairs. Check out pages 16-24 for mechanical clock movements and 35-43 for quartz clock movements. Need a new set of hands? A new dial? Flip through pages 44-51 to find what you’re looking for.

New Prairie Series Furniture Plan

We’ve got BIG news for Klockit customers interested in the Prairie Series furniture plans! Since we’ve had numerous requests for additional similar furniture plans, our design team has been “Burning The Midnight Oil” working on new and exclusive plan ideas.

One of the pieces is a beautiful coffee table that will feature a split/slid table top and will provide easy access to a storage compartment for magazines, books and other items. This upcoming piece will also feature a lower floor panel for display of decorative items.

I am projecting that the typical time required for most woodworkers will be somewhere between 20-30 hours for wood machining, assembly and finishing. Get ready to make this your 2014 winter project! Upon completion, this new Prairie Coffee Table will be the perfect addition to your home or can be a wonderful gift to give to family or friends too.

Keep your eyes open for this beautiful, exclusive coffee table plan from Klockit. Coming Fall 2013!
