Just in time for Christmas....

My grandson is interested in space ships. He believes airplanes with contrails are actually spaceships headed into space. Who am I to tell him differently.

Michael Tyler to my rescue... I decided to make his Project of the Month, Rocket Clock for him for Christmas present. Not sure he can read an analog clock, but he can learn :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fun project, thanks Michael!!! Only one issue. When cutting out the Back Rocket Panel I didn't notice that it was actually tapered. After cutting out the panel and noticing the taper I started trying to figure out why my machine was cutting at an angle... :oops: :oops: :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I decided to give him his very own secret galaxy on the backside. What to do with the hole for the clock? Turn it into a black hole.... :D :D

Nice work and no doubt he will love it. A great way to introduce him to an analog clock too and help him learn to tell time.
