From the bench of Brittany N. Cox:

David and I stayed pretty busy during the winter visit. Although, I think he’s been busy his entire life. Given that he completed his first clock at 27 years of age, just after completing a home he built from scratch. By 25, David had built parts for over 650 clocks and finished about 500 of them while working under master clockmaker Gerhard Hartwigs, who taught him the trade.

While gathering materials in the workshop, we found a stack of old photos. This one was hiding in the pile and shows David and his daughter Ashley next to the first clock he built after the passing of Mr. Hartwigs.
