One project finished -- LOTS to go!

I finished one of my waiting projects (admittedly, it was probably one of the easiest) but then picked up another one last Friday.

I bought a child's clock puzzle a few months ago and was very proud of the great deal I got -- until I got home and saw that it only had one hand! Since I've been making clocks out of kids' records, I decided to turn the clock puzzle into...a clock. Here's how it turned out:
You might remember, though, that I still have this waiting for me:and this

I can't decide if I should keep the slate inserts or put wood in those places. Any opinions? I also bought this great cabinet on Friday for a great price -- it looks like it began life as a hoosier, but someone (some old man somewhere) replaced the drawer fronts and doors and added lovely plastic handles & pulls. I see it as totally different, though -- painted depression green with glass pulls to bring out the glass doors. I can't wait to get to it.

It looks like I'll have a busy summer!

LOVE the cabinet! Can't wait to see it finished-sounds like a great plan! I'd keep the slate on the table and show it off with a new paint job around it.

That puzzle clock is super cute :)

I can't wait to see what you do with your other projects
