I build copper and brass starburst clocks that glow in the dark. I know that does not seem like too horribly manly of a pursuit, but it has many manly elements. I get cut a lot, I solder, drill holes in stuff, and measure a lot. I also can make a lot of the stuff I give for Christmas...

Thanks. I made other ones along the same lines. I make lamps and incense burners too. Here is one of the other clocks.
