Back in February a buddy of mine from MI mentioned that he had fallen into a funk due to his rheumatoid arthritis, bad reactions to the medicine that was supposed to help it and other unfortunate “stuff” that was going on in his life. I asked if he was spending any time in his woodshop and when he said no I said something like “I should issue you a throwdown”. He said “Yeah, maybe you should and after a night to think on it I called him back and did just that.
In the month of March he and I went into our shops and we each built a shop clock of our own personal design. We took drastically different approaches but in the end we both wound up with the clock we wanted. We are now in the voting stage and have posted reveal videos on Youtube and love to have you take a look at our work and cast your vote for the clock you think shold win the throwdown. During the build I blogged about it here on LumberJocks. Win or lose I feel like I have won, because my buddy seems to have been shaken from his funk, and if nothing else he was distracted from some of his pain.
Here are links to my buddy Jay’s video and to two videos from me. If you happen to catch this post before 9pm EST 4/8/15 feel free to cast a vote in the throwdown by visiting the link that is contained in each of the video descriptions on Youtube.
Finally, here’s a pic pic of my clock from my blog here on LJ.
