Here are the photos of some historical clocks that I’ve seen in the museum few weekends ago. Since many of you have recently posted clock projects I though you’d appreciate these as the source of inspiration. Enjoy ;)

Those are some nice clocks. Has anyone here tried to make something like that?

I like the top one most. Something like this is on my woodworking “hope to do someday” list. Thanks, Martin.

I like the top one as well… I’m still considering creating something to put my antique pocket watch in…

I like the top one too… but I don’t think that would fit in your pocket Debbie, or at least you’ll need some miniature tools to make a small enough one – perhaps make a lathe out of your Dremel, and use dental picks as chisels ;)

lol :)
I have a little collection of pocket watches, a couple from my great-grandfather’s home, a couple from other relatives and two that my first husband and I bought before we were married… gosh was that a long time ago. Actually I think we were in high school at the time so.. hm… that would make them antiques as well!! :) haha
Right now they are just sitting on a shelf. I’d love to mount them somehow to show them off. Lots of history there.
