Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Queen Elizabeth’s Buzzer Bell!

Adam has recently been binging and enjoying Netflix’s The Crown, and builds a prop he imagines would fit in the show’s portrayal of Buckingham Palace. In the show, Queen Elizabeth makes use of a buzzer to ring in guests and heads of state for meetings, so today’s prop build is Adam’s take on what that instrument would look like if he made it for the palace using technology from 100 years ago!
