DOMINO CLOCK No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

I liked the idea of a clock that was numbered by dominoes that I decided to make it for myself. 410mm square, oregon back ground and ebonised oregon frame. The cost is less than $10 but priceless when you make it by yourself.

Very clever! The dominoes give it a modern flavor in a traditional clock setting.

A very “rich” looking clock. I always look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to Sam

Great use of dominos – many other commercially available numbers are often kind of “tacky”.

Topa, no I did not. I went to Hot Dollar shop and found a pack of 1 set of domino, 2 sets of playing card and 5 dices for $2.50 only. Thank you all for your comments.
