Have made this woodworker tribute video to Charles A Smith for his mechanic ability and his ability to create the wooden works and case in a wooden pendulum clock in the 1930s and 40s. The video tells about his progress in making his first clock and follows the creation of an additional 613 clocks over the next 16 years of his retirement. The video can be found at
