    That looks great!

    What is a bell hanger and where would I find one? How does it connect the clock to the frame? Would Command Hooks work?

    Oh and the sand in the base is a great idea. Kudos.

    Good question and thanks for bringing the lack of clarity to my attention. A bell hanger is a piece of plumbing hardware (most hardware or plumbing supplies would have them) used for hanging copper piping, typically when it is ran outside of the wall. The bell hanger is glued to the back of the clock, and then mounted to the PVC pipe the cool thing about this application is that it allows you to swivel the clock up/down. (Picture to follow)

    I did not mention cost, the build can be done for about $65 that includes purchasing tools and material.
