    I have had these pins and this in my head for quite a long time. Seemed lime a no brainer what with 12 crest pins and all LOL

    Finally, had the time to put it together. Wood is cherry milled from my friends property and is about 20” in diameter. Holes drilled in wood for pin shaft and each pin is affixed a couple dabs of silicone in case they need to be removed ... :)

    My friend is already hinting that he wants to make a similar one for his daughter

    Very nice! Does it actually work as a clock?

    Oh cool! I've made button clocks but never a pin one. You've given me an idea...

    And I LOVE this! Thanks for sharing!

    Can't imagine anything larger :) not a fan of the blanket space ... Needs something to fill the center space, Disney quote or something ...

    I love a good Disney quote and any excuse to say or write them. Here are some of my faves about time.

    "Even miracles take a little time." Fairy Godmother from Cinderella

    "If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead." Ratatouille's Gusteau

    "Today is a good day to try." Quasimodo

    "You're never too old to be young." Happy from Snow White

    "Today's special moments are tomorrow's memories." Genie

    My thoughts exactly. I was thinking jumbo pins and smaller clock hands :p I'm sure you'll think of something great to fill in the middle space!

    Oh wow, this is so cool!! What a neat idea, and well done! It's going to look even cooler when you get a quote in there or something.

    I can just imagine her going "it's Ariel o'clock", haha- I know I would do that lol.

    Anyway, that's a fantastic display, especially since it's an actual clock! Then there's the fact that I love both this pin set and neat-looking analog clocks, so this is just beyond amazing for me. Great job!
