So it's time to begin looking forward to my next piece which will be a "moondial." I made this little bear cub a week or so ago and decided to use him as the pointer on a moondial. He'll be standing on a circle and the outside ring will have the phases of the moon. The inside will turn with 28 clicks completing a full circle.
It would be fantastic to find a brass gear with 28 cogs that's the right size, but it's hard to imagine that the stars would align quite that well!
