Shawn Blake, a Covington carpenter, enjoys tinkering.
Blake was busy showing his creation, a handmade brass and steel clock he named the “Ben Franklin Movement,” at the NAWCC (National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors) Pacific Northwest Regional at Kent Commons last Sunday.
Clocks of all makes and descriptions – as far back as the Civil War era – were on display for sale at the event, which attracted 75 vendors from throughout the Western States and Canada.
Blake’s creation of his pendulum-driven clock commanded considerable time and devotion.
“I Iearned a lot of patience,” he said of the intricate work.
