Very nice, and it is something that I’ve been thinking of making. How long did it take to build.

Thanks for the comments. It took about 3 days for building and another 3 days for applying 3 coats of polyurethane.

Over the past couple of years I’ve made a few clocks from plans that I ordered from Klockit and a few others of my own design. I really enjoy making them and have sold a few in Arts and Crafts shows in my area. I’ll post a few in the next day or two.

Have your say...
