This is a abstract junk version of the old grandfathers clock. The main body of the clock is a piece of drift wood, part of an old dock most likely, that Chelle and I found in Heritage Lake on a walk one day. The clock works is from an old clock with a broken face. The base is a wooden plate. The light is from an old clearance light off of a 50's truck. International Harvester logos with the "Scout" logo on the base. License plate for part of the face and an old Lions Club license plate topper to give the effect of ornate trim on the top of the old clocks! Its a very cool, functional piece!
