Every Village needs a Clock!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Spent most of today working on the next building in the Village series. Here is the Clock Tower! Made to hold a bottle of Scotch or Whiskey, but can definitely hold a wine bottle as well.

The secret is the clock…Set the hands to 4:00 (Happy Hour) and the lid comes off. Set it to 1:45 (last call) and the lid locks in place.

14.25" H x 4.75" Square. Took 4 Boards of 1/8" MDF.

I plan on doing a painted version but I needed to make sure the lock would work. Glad I did, had to change a couple of measurements. !

I hope everyone has a great night! Time to go paint boards! LOL

Thanks! I was going to 5:00, but then thought…“I’d rather be drinking at 4:00” LOL

That has to account for at least half the satisfaction of that effort.

That is pretty amazing. what are you drinking? You could wire in one of those electric trick gum zapper’s into the hands for when the clock is adjusted in the wrong direction.

That lock is the cleverest thing! I see more puzzle boxes in your future.

Clever locking concept. Are there 2 clock faces that both need to be set or did you link the front & back locks via some linkages in the roof?

You have to set both :slight_smile: Although that would have been cool to do.

HAHA, I do not think so. It really is just a simple turn lock. Nothing to outrageous.

Very cool design. You’ll have to post more pics when you get it painted.
