    My Popsicle stick clock project is finally finished. The case, made from Popsicle sticks glued together is in the style of an English Georgian bracket clock. The dial was painted by hand using acrylic paints on sheet steel while the movement is a spring-wind E. Ingraham striking movement made in 1868. Check out my article for full story (9 pages):

    The most fun part of the project was making the painted clock dial as described on page 8. Originally, I was going to decorate the dial with paintings of wolves. :)

    Thanks. And yes...it's a lot (I lost count) of Popsicle sticks, but scrap wood from other sources were also used for supports.

    That looks GREAT .

    I read some of your info on the link . but might of missed how long it took you to build this . Can you let us know how long it took ???

    So when will you start on a Floor Model Grand father Clock . that would be a Huge Job.

    Thanks. The time it took was spread out over a period of more than 12 months, on and off. At one point, I lost interest and almost tossed the whole project in the trash! I'm done with clocks for now; my next project will be an old English style (built into a wooden box with lid and lock) crystal radio receiver for AM and shortwave using a high performance circuit design. It will even have a signal strength meter. Stay tuned (no pun intended). :)
