...because he looks so happy “
The dancing clock is finished and a wonderful girl is a happy ticker.
Woods are purpleheart and rock maple. I used linseed oil and beeswax polish as finishes and glad I did….kids are all over stuff like this and will go hand to mouth or mouth on wood so the less toxic the better and less volatiles to be stinky in her room. The purpleheart really glows nicely, fun to finish this wood.
The clock kit mechanism is really rinky-dink so this is a toy rather than a real clock…so much slop in the pendulum mechanism I can’t get it to track correctly. But not expensive and fun to make.
I wrote a blog on this if interested
