I had seen these cigar box clocks on eb@y for anywhere from $25-50. I thought to myself, I want one of those!! But wasn't about to fork out that kind of money for one.
I was discussing this with one of my fellow BOTLs and he said "I want one made out of a VSG Box that he had" He said he would give me another VSG box to make me one out of and a few smokes as payment. DEAL!
So here is the finished products. I have a a few more boxes to make for a few more friends to. I'll post up pics of those soon.
If anyone is interested in one, let me know, and maybe we will work out a deal or something on one.
Very nice. I love beautiful clocks. My dad is a car collector and we took a drill press to a vintage hubcap with similar results for his father's day gift. He loved it. These look every bit as good as his did. Did you freehand them or use a drill press?

No.... thats why I have a cell phone with a digital clock on it!!! Silly!!
I think next time I will see about getting a darker colored hand for the lighter colored boxes and use the gold on a dark box I'm making (Alec Bradley Family Blend) for the B&M that gives me the boxes. Its going to be a suprize and a nice "thankyou" to them They have gave me alot of free smokes and boxes, its the least I could do beside the "Thanks a bunch" I always tell them after they say don't worry about it after i offer to pay for them.
