Here’s one for the fans of Wile E. Coyote. This time bomb clock is made with 3/4” dowel, red paint, a 3” x 4.5” base, and a 2” x 2” clock base. A bit of wire, some brass screws, nuts and knurled knobs and you’re done. It never fails to get a laugh and a comment.

Jim’s advice is good…and try not to make too many for people you hardly know. Hopefully, the alarm isn’t a “boom.”
