How To Make A Hand In Hand Skelton Clock #ArtTuesday
How to make the uniquely beautiful hand in hand skeleton clock using trinket. via instructables
A hand in hand clock is a clock where the minute hand is mounted on the tip of the hour hand (and second on minute). This gives a clock that looks quirky and unique, but still very readable and clock like.
This clock is a skeleton edition of a hand in hand clock. This means that all gears of the clock are visible. The idea behind skeleton clocks is not to hide how it works by covering it up, but to show it off. While this is not something everything likes, it is something that I as an engineer really appreciate. For the color scheme of this clock I wanted something almost like steampunk. This left only one possible color scheme. Black and glorious gold, with brass screws. I think the result is really stunning.
