Build this clock from dumpster salvage.
I have this crazy quirk. I like to build stuff from things people throw away. In this case I cut a digital clockworks out of a plastic cigarette advertizing sign that was chucked in a dumpster. I have had this sitting in a box for 15 years. I finally decided it was time for a rebirth.
Right: I masked off the face before spraying the plastic surround flat black. I also replaced the black 1 foot cord with a more practical length.
The columns are hand painted plastic pipe.
The bases for the columns are made from MDF
Ready for assembly.
No problem seeing the time now!
