I put together my first clock today. I think it looks pretty neat hanging on my parents' gray cedar siding, but it will be on its way to Alaska soon enough. I think these pictures of the clock on the house look really Alaska-ish, strangely enough.
While I'm really happy with the look of this clock, it sucked me into my usual black hole of sanding, painting, sanding, painting, etc. I always seem to prefer forms that are difficult to cut, sand, and paint. So, my next clock goal is SIMPLE. The things I make are almost never simple, but the things I buy (ok, the brand new furniture I buy) are usually pretty sleek and simple.
