Custom Black Walnut Root Metronome Cabinet being tested for the first time. The movement is a donor from a 1970’s era plastic encased Seth-Thomas metronome. This walnut was given to me by my neighbor and I paid $13 for the donor metronome. Total cost less sandpaper and supplies that I already had – $13. I still need to complete the sanding and apply the finish and the Time Signature label.
The vision I had for this particular metronome was to make it a modern organic wood sculpture in the style of George Nakashima, while also showing the Industrial Age Style Mechanical movement at work.
I’m already into the planning stages of the 2nd metronome. I’m pretty excited about it as it will be made out of LEGOS!
