I would like to make one of these.
They look really great.

I love it! I’m going to make these as Christmas Gifts. They will get a blast out of it :-). Pun shamelessly intended

Just when you thought they ran out of ideas for novelty clocks. Actually, I really like these. For the busy executive who has everything.

Just be careful if you send them through the mail. You might give some poor Clerk a heart attack not to mention a polite knock on your door from the FBI if your packages are ever x-rayed on their trip which is Highly likely.

Other wise I think they are cool.

I have made several of these in the past and have given all of them away, with one exception. I did keep one for myself. These little gifts have been very much appreciated by the recipients. I gave one to my former secretary, who now keeps it on a front corner of her desk…. just as a warning! However, she tells me that she has had a lot of inquiries as to where she got it. I did mail a couple of them and did not have any problems with that. Nevertheless, I was a bit apprehensive about sending them via USPS.

LOL——-Scotty, I think this style of clock that you and VillageWood have made is destined to be a classic. Wasn’t it Wile E.Coyote… no, no it was the ACME Co. that originally made these… LOL

Love it, and I think one day, I’ll make my own.
Thanks for posting.

Love this! What a great idea..the only thing it’s missing is the black binding straps around the sticks of dynamite…you could probubly use large shrink tubing cut into bands..I want to “borrow” this idea!

These are Great! I have had it on my list for some time. There is another fellow Lumberjock that made one as well. I don’t know if you saw this one, so I thought I would share it with you. Thx for the post.
