Filling the Time - Rolf

Home » Articles » Filling the Time - Rolf

With time on our hands, and the sun shining, I went into my shed this morning and made myself a sundial. It only has hour marks, from 7am to 7pm because we tend not to be out before 7am, the minutes do not matter, the hours are a vague guide, and by 7pm we dont care what the time is (we've had our tea, and are in evening mode)

The sundial has to be level and therefore it has a pendulum type level finder, it also has to face north and the little compass finds that. It was made entirely from little scraps I took from the firewood box; Beech, Cherry and some very dark brown/black foreign stuff.
