Okay, so this is my first challenge...sorry this pics are so bad as far as color goes, but my digital camera is terrible at getting color...anyways, this clock was made only with things available at home depot, i even included 5 pennies i received as change...total cost $8.95, plus those five pennies and some stress...I am waiting to get my film back which has photos of me making it, but i wanted to get this post up before i forgot.

to access the clock workings and two of the front screws come out and the front face comes off, two of the screws are dummy screws just for looks...

here is the back

and yet another front view

my first challenge attempt... Undecided

for those who have asked i will be posting a step by step tutorial as soon as my shopping and crafting is done for the holiday, also clocks and other works by me will be in my new online gallery/shop after the holidays...www.espressopunk.com.  happy holidays to all.
