Our Latest Creation....
I love it when sundial buyers send me photos of their installation. Here's what T.S. of Tucson, AZ did with his: "Hey Chet, I have placed the sundial with correct level and true North orientation. It’s really nice and I’m very happy with my purchase! As you might have noticed, I did some copper enamel paint on the surface, but I think it turned out well."
Click the below video to see a short television interview with me on WKYC-TV's "Golden Opportunities":

(They make a wonderful gift for that special person or occasion!)
And unlike generic dials sold in garden stores and big box outlets, ANCR uses your exact latitude, longitude, and time zone to plot the hour lines of your personalized sundial.
Please Note: Our website is featured on the North American Sundial Society's Artisan's web page:
Each sundial pattern is cut on a dedicated CNC router using over 40,000 lines of machine code, and takes over 5-1/2 hours to complete!
(a short video of the process can be seen
below -- just click the arrow in the center.)
After completely cooling from its pour temperature of 1400 degrees Fahrenheit, the sundial is machined and polished.
