There are 12 months in a year and 12 hours on a clock. I built this for my father to keep track of birthdays and anniversaries for children and grandchildren. The hands are from Lee Valley. My wife used a Sharpie for the names. Maple walnut is my father’s favourite ice cream.

Nice design, looks like a shop clock with those hands. I’m sure your father will enjoy this gift.

We used hearts for anniversaries. We thought it would be too cluttered to include dates as well.

Great idea and a great way to remember each special occasion. Father will appreciate the unique timepiece.
