This is my version of mroek's Ribbon Clock Time Machine trick. It is made entirely of black walnut and has a urethane finish. I decided to attempt to make a wooden one, after reading numerous posts about attaching veneer to the 3D printed version. It uses a real quartz movement, so it actually does tell time.

The performance is identical to the original, except that the ribbon in the center section disappears independent of the change of the clock's hands; the performer controls when the ribbon disappears. I'm guessing that my method is identical to the inventor's method.

The clock is 13.25" long, 3" wide and 6.5" high; the ribbon is 1.5" wide. It is large enough to be performed in a medium sized room and audience.

Beautifully done Inlver! That looks so elegant.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Very nice indeed. I do however think that the round part (with the clock face) is a bit too large compared to the rest. The overall size of your version makes it more suitable for performing for a bigger audience, which is cool.
