Look What My Dad Made!

Isn't this clock pretty cool?  My dad made it from maple and cherry and a pendulum clock kit from Klockit.

He took the circle off the pendulum that came with the kit, replaced it with the diamonds, and painted the metal black.

My only contribution was the suggestion to replace the numbers with diamonds.

I think he did a fabulous job on this mantle clock, and am happy to report that our friends love their "whimsical" clock!
