This clock has a special story behind it.Several years a go i was visiting the local home depot.An old guy walked up to me and started a conversation with me about the way that i was looking at the wood.He said that most people did not know what they were looking at.About 2 weeks later we met again at his house and i ended up getting a real nice fence job from him.Everyday that i was working on the fence he would pull up his stool and watch me.Yes it made me very nervous to have someone watching over me.Everything went real well and the fence came out real nice.Ended up getting a lot of work from his friends and family.They would all say if you can make Mr Gaddini happy you can make anyone happy. About 2 years later he called me up and asked if I could come by.I dropped by and he told me he had some things to fix on the house.He had just found out that he had terminal cancer and wanted to get everything on the house fixed before he passed.I worked on his list for several months when i finished all that he wanted done at that time he gave me a list of things that need to be done after he had passed.
He died shortly after and no one called for a month after.His wife called and said that her husband had left me something and she wanted it out of the house.I went over there and she brought me to a room that was filled with boxes.Mr Gaddini had been a clock maker at one time in his life and he wanted me to have it all.The family did not think that i would want all that junk as the family put it.He made 32 different kind of clocks and had parts of all of them in that room.There were 6 truckloads of clock parts and other tools and things of his life that his family did not want.This is the first of his clocks that i have put together with the help of Mr.Gaddini.Now i only have 31 more styles to figure out.
This clock is made out of walnut and it has Westminster chimes in it.I hope that i did not bore you to much but i wanted to tell the story to people that would appreciate it .
