    "The Jetson's Clock"

    About a month ago, I saw a post on FB from another woodworker who does a weekly project and video. This particular week was a retro wall clock the he called "The Jetson's Clock". I loved it and couldn't wait to build one for myself. Well yesterday morning I rounded up what I needed and got busy yesterday afternoon. About 24 hours later and it's finished.

    I LOVE IT!

    Dang,

    Why didn't I see that during the Art Decco craze? That clock is perfect for the Jetsons and for Art Decco. I wonder what profound observation I should make from that bit of information.

    GREAT clock. I assume you had a lot of fun with the project.

    Enjoy,

    Yep, it was a very easy and fun project. I'm going to start playing around with some other designs and see what I can come up with. I'm gonna put some of them on Etsy and see what happens.

    That's one of the coolest clocks I've seen in a long time. Very cool, John!

    That's just out of this world! Where did you get the clock parts? Spacely sprockets?
