Once again a big thank you to the LJ that gave me info on clock mechanisms. This is for our RV and has a clock for each time zone in the continental USA. Had a major oops when I realized the face board was thicker than the clock shafts. I had thought I understood how to install but somehow overlooked the way the mechanism needed to be mounted before the hands are installed. Had to run dados up the back in order to get the thickness correct as I already had the back support bars glued in place. The arrow is movable and will mark our current time zone when traveling. Face front is myrtlewood and then a bit of walnut for the back and the arrow.

Nice and simple design. Great idea to have them all on one board. I like it without numbers.

Thanks. Had some discussion on adding numbers or adding some dashes with wood burning, but decided to keep it simple. It will fit between two windows.

Jim – you guessed it. Klockit had a good selection and a friend had a coupon so bought 5 movements so I would have an extra if I messed one of them up. All went ok after I did my “fix” for the wood thickness so I can make another clock at some point.

What a clever idea … great job. The myrtle wood is beautiful. I like the absence of numbers … causes a double take before one realizes it’s a clock!
