A versatile accent that will look great both in your home or in a lodge, the River City Clocks 810-12 Man Chopping Wood Cottage Cuckoo Clock will also impress you with its lasting function. At the top of each hour the man chops away at his log in front of the Black Forest cuckoo clock cottage. He is surrounded by hand-carved trees and wildlife, including two fawns and a cuckoo bird perched on a log. The cuckoo clock house has an elaborately hand-carved roof. On every hour the man chops the log with his axe as the cuckoo bird cuckoos the hour. There is also a manual night shut off switch that allows you to mute the cuckoo sound and stop the wood chopper. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continuously swings back and forth, controlling the timing of the clock. The eight-day brass mechanical regular movement is wound once per eight days by pulling the chains which raises the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time and the other weight powers the cuckoo, cuckoo call, and the wood chopper.
