I’ll admit that I’m a total sucker for these kind of articles. I actually keep a search out on Google to find them. Why? They remind me of why I got interested in making things in the first place. Listen to Cadillac Michigan High School freshman Curtis Baum:
“I was looking at magazines and found a clock that looked cool, but it broke. I tried it again and it broke,” he said. “So I decided to make my own design. I like fire and flames and thought if I liked it I would build it.”
Not only did he build a flame clock, he entered it in the Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society regional show — and won second place.
So, Curtis, here’s a message from your (new) friends at Toolmonger: fire and flames rock, and so do you.
