History of Wall clocks

Early clocks were natural progression from Huge Sundial which had a totally natural technology of telling the time of the day based on the shadows that the sun’s rays cast on the marked surfaces. Most wall clocks were then evolved from sundials – in fact, some wall clocks were purposely designed to look like old sundials. As technology changed from natural to analog, mechanical, they became large and expensive and were usually only on large public places like churches and other public buildings. Domestic wall clocks began to appear in British houses in about 1600. These early clocks, called ‘chamber clocks’, were of the ‘lantern’ type or its easier meaning, brass type because of its make from Brass. They were hung from a hook on the wall and weights hung down below them on ropes, later chains which than evolved into the most popular pendulums. There were up to three weights – for the time, the striking and sometimes also an alarm. The first clocks were made of iron; later brass became the preferred metal, often with thickly gilded dials. It took craftsmen several months to finish one. Only the kings and queens would afford the luxuries of these brass dials in their mansions and palaces. Then history saw the second revolution of large scale changes. Great Britain was the first to revamp the traditional brass dials and introduce the modern clock dials that we have today. Painted dials, heavy work wooden wall clocks soon grew in popularity and were produced for the use of the masses. During this era, wall clocks started to be used not only for timekeeping but also as decorative and commemorative pieces. British industrialist and imperialist started to use them to mark and celebrate various religious and cultural events and even famous sports and war victories. Thomas Kent wall clocks right from the famous Paddington Station Wall Clock today symbolizes the significance of these celebrations in our life.

home theater wall question?

– I need something to serve as a divider between my work-in-progress home theater room and a playroom. Both are really made out of one large room. The ceiling is 8′ and the width of the room is 13′. I need something that would go well with chocolate walls and white carpet. It has to be removable, there cannot be any kind of permanent wall between the home theater and playroom. It also must be below $500.00. Any recommendations?

There are pieces of furnature that are finished on both sides, often in the form of a book shelf, they are called room dividers and are specifically for that purpose. You could also look into an acordian folding wall, i think those are pretty tacky however.

Another thing you could do, is build a stud wall that ‘clamps’ into position by pushing upward from the floor to ceiling, cut each 2×4 just a hair long and wedge it into place. Then cover each side with panelling.
