Grandfather Clock

I have a grandfather clock and a cuckoo clock on my to-do list. A sundial too. I’m retro that way.

Really sad to see clocks and watches disappear due to mobile phones.

I’m posting Joan’s clock as inspiration for myself. I tend to start smaller images than this and then find it difficult to get all the trimmings in. I do have a good clock face already. So I could build the clock around it. Not for the cuckoo clock maybe. That would be smaller. Will see whenever I get them done.
