Functional, E-Z to Build DIY Wood Sundial Kit
In tribute to five millennia of suntanned, time-obsessed civilizations, we are pleased to present a modern take on a classic design. With accurately laser cut wood parts and clear, full color instructions this 34-piece kit is easy to build. No special tools or building skills are required, only sandpaper, glue and a razor cutter. The result is a beautiful conversation piece for the patio, cottage, or desk that can be easily set to tell time accurately for almost any location on earth. Measures approx. 9"L x 9"W x 12"H.
The kit includes:18 laser cut pieces, 1 style, 10 short alignment pins (including 2 spares), 4 long alignment pins (including 1 spare) and 1 eight page instruction booklet.
Review the instruction manual in the DOCUMENTS file above for complete details.
An equatorial sundial is beautiful in its simplicity. It has only two main parts, a dial plate and a style.
The style is a rod that passes through the center of the dial plate, extending above and below it. The style is perpendicular to the dial plate, and casts a shadow onto it. The dial plate has an upper and lower dial face, both of which are marked off in hours.
Each hour is exactly 15 degrees wide. The location of the style’s shadow indicates the time. In summer months, the shadow falls on the upper face, and during the winter it falls on the lower face.
