1. Get wood.
2. Get clock mechanism.
3. Drill hole.
4. Install clock mechanism.
5. Enjoy your wood clock.

get a long, straight piece of wood.

Turn it on a lathe until it is round.

Sand it smooth.

Varnish or paint.












Oh. CLOCKS














never mind.

He lives on School St. The first street S. of Barrows. There is a sign in front of his house that says clocks. He build the whole thing from scratch. There are some pretty amazing clocks that he has built.
