Hello everyone. My nephew will be off to school soon so I made him a wall clock, footlocker, and wastebasket to take with him. It was sort of a rush job but they came out alright. Thanks for looking.

That’s great. Tell him no matter what time the clock says, it’s time to STUDY!

I think what you made are great. I just didn’t care for the “devil” as the school’s image!

Everybody should have at least one UNCLE like you Leith. I hope he treasures both the gift and you. You’ll probably be getting a few request for more of those.

Pretty sharp looking clock and it’s finished nicely.

If that’s a rush job, I’ll look forward to seeing what you can do, when you’re NOT rushed.

Great projects !
