I really like how the numbers on the boxes are all justified differently. I would have probably just centered all the numbers on the boxes... B-O-R-I-N-G-!

I centered them first, but it seemed like an ordinary clock numbers... So I decided to play around with numbers!

Thank you :D

Could you imagine if each number lit up when the hand went by? That is a cool idea, I think I will make it when I get the time.

That looks smaller in the pictures than what I am guessing it is, you said the faces of the boxes are 8cmX8cm? that is a good effort!

How complicate would it be if you added minutes an seconds...

ErmanosMedia (author)JM19992014-09-20

Actually back (side on wall) and face side of each box is 10cmx10cm and all the other sides are 8cmx8cm. Yeah good effort :D...Making boxes took me a few days, but was worth it. Right now I'm editing the video. Check it out tomorrow. Cuz in the video U can better see the actual size of the box. Thank you for comment!
