We all know how easy it is to make a clock so I decided to make one when I found this face of an old produce scale.  I thought it would be a hoot as a clock because the numbers on the scale are only 1 - 10 and they are counterclockwise!
A good portion of the paint was rubbed off by the hand of the scale so I hit that area with that make-it-rust stuff from the craft store.  Then I dismantled an older clock and put the works onto the scale face.
What I came up with is a clock that is near impossible to read!!!  See, when a clock face has no numbers your mind will work with the position of the hands and imagine the numbers needed to read the time.  However, when a clock face has numbers your mind goes all lazy and just reads the numbers.  Check the photo below and you'll see what I mean.

Tell me your brain didn't tell you it was about 10 minutes to 8.

I hung it above the window over the kitchen sink.  Here's a broader shot.

Thanks for looking!  You guys are the GREATEST!
