Wet, one side of the clock, clamp it to one of those nice straight 2×4’s from the BORG and place it in the sun..

If that doesn’t work you’ll have to rip it in half and re-glue it

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it

Build the next one to match this and let it warp itself straight!
