Fluid Time

Time as they say is fluid. You can’t stop it or control it, all you can do is measure it and try not to let it get away from you. When Martin proposed the challenge to “create a project that portrays fluidity and/or movement” I didn’t want to just portray it, I wanted to have actual fluid movement. This clock was made from various thicknesses of plywood cut with a scroll saw and a Dremel. It is not as quiet as a digital clock and it loses about 2 min. every 24 hours, much like myself. (I am not quiet and have lost a lot of hours working wood) There are 66 pieces in this clock and it took aprox. 80 hours to build. This is the first challenge I have entered, and appreciate any votes and/ or comments.

Thanks Dennis, the plans came from Scrollsaw magazine. I believe that Marc Tovar was the contributor

Great Job! I have an all wood clock in the making but have been stumped for a few months so have set it aside for awhile. I hope it will turn out half as nice as yours.

That is awesome. I mean really awesome. I have a friend who repairs clocks, and he does woodwork. I will have to show him this. He will $h!t his pants.
