Welcome to A.C.D.C. Designs

Hello, I am Alan Calvert and I handmake wooden clocks and boxes just for you

My name is Alan Calvert and I am a retired Design and Technology teacher. I have always enjoyed making wooden items ranging from pieces of furniture for the home to more personal items for friends and family. When I retired, I focused on designing a series of clocks, boxes and other small items based on my knowledge and love of the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.


Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Arts and Crafts movements are other influences on my work and I often combine several ideas into the items I make


I hope you will enjoy looking at my designs in the catalogue and if you do decide to order any items, please contact me directly and I will make the item you require to order.


My Work

I have a limited number of ready-made items in local galleries and exhibitions, but most of the items I make are made to order in wood so please contact me and specify your needs. I will then be able to make your personal clock or box in the wood you choose and the size and design that suits your needs.

I can usually manage to make your item within a month of finalising the order but please allow a little longer for the busy period such as for Christmas.


If you are in a hurry, however, I may have the item you like in stock, in which case I can ship it to you within a few days. Please click on the image of the item you would like and see if it is available.

The cost of shipping has been added to the price of the goods for your convenience but I now only ship items within Great Britain due to the restrictions on the import of solid wooden items some countries impose and import duties.


Sorry for any inconvienience this may cause.

Thank you Alan
