Make This Sundial

Late in Sept. 2009

Time to Carve: 0 hours
Metal work: 1.5 hours
Finishing: 1 hours
Coming off a personal victory with the Brass Pipe Tomahawk, I decided to try another brass project (since I still had some brass left). The Make This Sundial project looked like just the ticket. A scrap piece of wood for the back  and attached the brass to the wood. I laid a enlarged copy of the pattern on the brass and traced the lines using a ball point pen pressing down hard as I went. The center piece was cut to the right angle for my area and glued in place.

This will indeed tell time (as well as any sundial will) but my only regret is I  cant seem to find the right combination to darken the lines.
