The concept was online, but I had the most fun getting material, making and giving this to The Boyfriend of my daughter. He seemed to like it in the kindness it was intended.

A gift that can leave a resounding mark OLE... is the time (am/pm) of significance?

Yours turned out great. Daughter’s boyfriend…....ehhh? (in the voice of a mobster) Here’s a gift for you… good to my daughter or you might just find a real one in your bed someday.

They are fun weekend project to make and you do get all sorts of fun comments when someone sees it. After a few months on display at my work, someone offered me $35 for mine so she could give it to her brother as a birthday present. I didn’t make a whole lot of money on it but that was never my idea.
I may just make another one this weekend.
Well done.

Great clock! I’m thinking about how I could make a puzzle version for my son in law that he could disarm, IF he disconnected the wires in just the right order…It would be perfect, given the woman he married…; )

It’s a “drunkards clock” – time to get bombed!

Don’t try taking it on an airplane ...
