>>11692513>it draws you in with a cool home craft to do
Lol. Most of my home crafts usually involve power tools, but I've been known to have fun with food.
Case in point: >Dinner Roll Kitchen Clock.
The next time you've begun dinner & someone yells out: "Hey! Where's the biscuits?"
return to kitchen & remove well-cooked biscuits from oven. Set aside to dry out further overnight.>CONSTRUCTING CLOCK
Fix yourself drink.
Invert pan. Release thrKraken.
Employing high school geometry or 3 lengths of string, say a quick prayer to Wolfgang of Regensberg, the patron saint of carpenters & biscuit carvers, then drill hole dead-center through middle biscuit using 1/16 bit or one just shy of the diameter of your clockwork's hand mechanism.>Take a sip of your drink & smile; so far so good.
Now turn the biscuit circle bottom-side up.
Place battery-operated clockworks on it & outline frame carving out a shallow depth as perfectly as possible, invoking Wolfgang & drink again if needed.
Test drive it by inserting the clockworks to insure it fits. If not, employing wolfgang & drink method 1st, make necessary adjustments. >Once you're certain this Just Might Work, apply handy glue to carved-out area making sure not to glue the drilled hole or your entire project will be moot.
Insert clockworks. Let dry.
While you're waiting, maybe have some friends over to play cards or watch movie. Erhhaps read a book>FINISHING THE CLOCK
Really, all that needs to be done at this point is to read the instructions for putting the hands and seconds arm on place without hopelessly bending them...although, SHOULD THIS HAPPEN, see Plan B.
Insert battery, set clock, affix a nail or someone to the wall of your choice, hang our new clock! Voila!
You Da Man!>PLAN B
Simply put, forget the clock idea & just hang the dried biscuits on a wall for some cool kitchen art
Lacquer, paint or decorate if wanted.
Just be certain to arrange your biscuits in contact with each other, even jamming them in if need be
