Default 'Bird Clocks Made to Order by Leroy Eckert

Shown below are photos of prototypes of Blue Bird reproduction clocks I made. These are very similar to the 'Bird clocks that were found in some of the vintage 'Birds that are very hard to find, or the 'Bird owners that now have them are not willing to part with them.

Now you can order one that I will custom make for you. I made them from red oak with either golden oak, special walnut, or dark walnut stain or North American Black Walnut with my stain. I will make them to order, $99 shipped either UPS or FedEx ground. I have ordered several movements to arrive sometime next week. The clocks measure approx. 19.75" long, 5.75" high and 13/16" thick. the clocks mount with Velcro or hang. They use a Quartz clock movement that takes one AA battery.

To place an order, or for more information email Leroy at;
jwasnewski@yahoo.com

Leroy, I'd love to have one. My pick is the walnut stain picture 104. That would check another thing off my to do list.

No, I have not run into him here. The camp is about 8 miles from my home in the mountains. I see them training (running) in the area from time to time. When up in the rough terrain I see them out of uniform frequently. The camp is up there in Deliverance Ville. lol
