I built this Patience Clock to remind myself that “Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.” Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805), dramatist, essayist and poet.
The symbol is a Kanji character that represents patience, among other meanings. I know because I Googled it, and it must be true if it’s on the Internet. (I hope it doesn’t mean something rude…I’m just glad I glued it on the right way.)
It’s made from a scrap piece of white spruce 2×4. I like how the wood grain sweeps with the curves. The 2-3/4” clock insert is from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for looking at my clock project. If you make one please send me a picture. Have a great day and be patient! Steve :)
