Another Edge Lit Clock

Postby olf20 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 12:07 pm

Made this for my Grand Daughter. She is moving into
her first apartment after graduating from nurses school.
It's not fully assembled, I just wanted to see how everthing
looked.

Those led multi colored lights sure make it
easy to light things up.
I was very impressed with the price and how much
you can control these strips.
Thanks for the reply.

Turned out nice.

Nit picker that I am, dot array is obviously off center and/or not sized large enough, causing some numbers to run into them.
Is there plexi dust on it or plastic still on, or just the wood showing through ?

Used to do alot of clocks haven't done one in a while, often used Roman numerals as well as standard.

Yea, the dots needed to be in a larger circle.
They are centered, I didn't see that till I finished
engraving and wasn't going to scrap it.
I'm going to make a couple more with different
frames one of which I think I will do the roman
numerals.
It was dirt on the plexi. I was so impressed with the
lighting I took a picture and posted.
I was worried about the clock movement showing
thru so I painted the back cover black and it really
hides it well.
I ordered some thin black plastic sheets to put
directly behind the plexi if needed.
Thanks for the reply!

You'll want to try plexi mirror too, looks great lit or unlit and completely hides the movement.

I also use corian for clocks, no light of course but very attractive and holds details great.
This one I left out numbers all together to make the design larger.

Great looking! I really like using corian. I've done
several litho's that turned out great.
I'll have to order some mirror plexi, sounds interesting.
