I really want to build one for this year. It's on my "to-do" list.
I'd love to have a spooky ominous grandfather clock to greet the guests in the dining room/living room.
I'm playing around with a couple ideas. I want to go with a simple frame to save on costs, but also add some detailed wood work to it. I'm going to have a hanging pendulum with maybe a eerie green glow to it. As for the face, it'll be 13 hours. My plan is to paint/draw the face on an acrylic round sheet that will be spray painted tan/yellow. I want to back light it and possibly have the shadow of a skeleton hand swiping it every now and then. The clock will be spinning around non-stop as if haunted.
