A velvet-voiced Australian craftsman named Chris is the Bob Ross of clock-making. He shows you how to make a skeleton clock from scratch at home on his YouTube channel, Clickspring. In this installment of a multi-part series, bask in the close-ups of brass melting away like golden velvet to make shiny washers and screws. They’ll eventually go into making a beautifully elaborate timepiece. The finished product will be as pretty as Big Ben, if even these teeny, tiny, glittering components are any indication.
