Long haul flights

Amongst the many framing orders that were sent my way this festive season, came a last minute request for a custom box-frame. A customer and her son, popped in a couple of days before Christmas day and requested my help in creating a gift with a difference.

The boys Daddy, had just completed flying a plane long-haul to many destinations around the world, and to mark the event, Mum and son had devised a unique gift idea. They brought in six, identical small clocks and wanted them framed together to show the different time-zones of each flight destination.

Sounds like fun and I always like a framing challenge, so I set to work on the frame.

The customer requested that the clock faces should all be behind glass and also required access to the back of each clock, so that the correct times could be set and changed as needed. I used a mount to place and display each clock and an aperture underneath each clock to indentify the destination of each clock time.

With only a few hours before closing for the Christmas break, the frame was collected by a happy Mum and son, and hopefully was a nice surprise for one Daddy this Christmas.
