Marble Gate. The wire gates allow one marble at a time to roll down and drop onto the lever which releases another marble until all the marbles have rolled down. It is made of poplar and has a lacquer finish. The kids enjoy playing with this game.

Charles North


This Clock is a kit made of precut mdf which Charles stained with red mahogany dye stain. Spray lacquer is on the face, but he didn't think spraying the gears would be a good idea. It is based on design from 17th to 18th century. The kit comes with a rather incomplete DVD and written instructions. Between the two he was able to assemble it and, after 3 weeks of running and adjusting, it is accurate within 4 minutes for 12 hours when it needs to be rewound!
It is good way to learn basics about clocks. He had originally hoped to use it as project with his grandsons, but it is way beyond their attention span and nearly so his own!
