Bill Ding Clock
Vintage Bill Ding (get it??) man blocks. You’re probably
familiar with these guys – you stack them on top of one another and make
wonderful buildings, sculptures, etc. I used my stash of really old and loved
guys and built a clock facing. For the back structure, I used an old piece of teak wood off of a Lazy
Susan and attached the clock mechanism to it. It measures about 1.5 feet across.
You can find these happy little guys on eBay (new and used) or Google Bill Ding and find other resources.
I think this one is going to our
pals Heather and Barry for their new little boy’s room.
We made it the goal this year to create as many Christmas
gifts as possible and who doesn’t need a new clock? Plus the mechanisms are
really affordable and you can create one from darn near everything. So, I got busy
this weekend and started checking folks off the list. Take a look:
