Another thing that I've done in my previous life is make clocks, out of Fimo, plaster and wood....
Once again I started looking thru craigslist and found one. It looked like it was from the 50's or so, it was electric, nice form...all wood, but the cables were cut. I loved the look of it and knew I could buy a new mechani.
I looked around and I should have no problem getting a new mechanism for the clock and no problem to swap it out.
So looking forward to making this baby shine and tic toc again~
