    If you can handcraft one of these together without any help then you are a master craftsman IMHO.

        The last line of the clock tour indicates that the choice of case is up to the purchaser. If I had one, the clock case would be made of glass so all the movements would be visible. What craftsmanship.

            My dad started out an apprentice in the shop in the skilled trades department. He worked his way up like the trend goes .He always had higher ups comeing to him to ask , how do i do this or do that. My dad was is a simple man overall. He has shown me lots of neat tricks that most people dont see. If my dad didnt have the tool for the project he useually made it. I have seen many weird looking things in his shop lol. He dont have any paperwork saying he is anything as i dont have any paperwork either. He did his 36 years and i consider him a master of all. He always read instructions before doing anything else. He has a knack for thinking of how to do stuff that i envy. Now take me , i have 14 years of drywall exp under my belt. I never worked for any union and the union is the only place you will see paperwork . We do have terms like journeyman and master also outside the union but we laugh at those names.I know without a doubt in mind i can teach anyone to play in the mud the proper way. I can only think of two kinds of masters .....the ones with many years who know what they are talking about and the ones like my dad. He just seemed to " know" , how to do stuff and did it very well . I have never been a paperwork kinda person but in these day and ages no one will look at you without the paperwork. It makes me sick to think that bosses will pass up the ones who " know ". against the paperwork of a fresh out of college, educated person.
