I think will be incredibly impressive.
Id love the dxf to this.
Suggestion if it can be done might be roots for legs????

Yeah we are on the same page cstroke, tree trunk/roots. I'll post the dxf of the face. I haven't done up the legs quite yet. Keep in mind the drawing will need to be changed up (hour angle and gnomon angle) for your location.

First off thank you for the share, I cut this over the weekend and added some Patina. I also changed the degrees to match my town.

This was my first try at the Steel F/X coatings. I am stoked the way it turned out.

Looks like the guys from Lincoln at Design Cut Build did a sundial with a different type of base. Although it's pretty wasteful in my opinion, I still like it because it could give someone ideas.

I think it unreasonable that your wife gets mad if you are late home from the sacrifice. With the sun down how the heck are you supposed to keep track of the time? Sundial sort of leads you to think that any thing between sundown and sunup should be free unaccounted for time!

Another question.... do I kick it clock wise or counter clockwise to adjust for daylight savings?

Can someone enlighten me,,, any reason that a sundial could not be built to put on a wall? South exposure I presume!

Just build 2 and hang a sign on the gnomon that says out of order, then you can move it back and forth for DST or regular. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If you're serious you would turn it counter clockwise. I put mine together yesterday and was like dang it's an hour behind then I realized what was going on.

And yes it can go on a wall, even west facing but it doesn't work until like 11 o'clock. Google them
