Clock Project Update

It’s been a month and four days, but I finally was notified this morning that my grandfather clock kit has shipped. I imagine they had to mill all the wood parts from scratch (which is fine, better than them being mass produced), then blow the glass and all of that.

I expect the kit to arrive in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I’ve procured all the required finishing materials (stain, clear coat, glue), clock mechanism and chime rods.

I should be able to hit the ground running when everything gets in, and for the most time intensive part of the construction I’m going to try to take a few vacation days so I can work right through it. It’ll definitely make the process easier.

Anyway, wish me luck as I embark on this project.

  1. If you can, take occasional pictures to document the process. I’d love to see it!
    Best of luck to you!πŸ€ I think you’re gonna have a blast!!

    One little suggestion… if you start getting frustrated, stop and walk away. Take a break. From experience, I can tell you, I’ve completely ruined projects that had minor glitches by forcing through.πŸ˜˜πŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
