Step 3: Setting Up & Assembly
How are we going to make this clock stand, you ask? The answer is simple - we're going to utilize every part of the game...including the packaging! Take the Connect 4 game board and place it on its side and set it square to the bottom of the Connect 4 game box (we set the board on its side because that allows us to create a symmetrical face - if you use the board in its original setup, you would have to offset the clock to the left or right because there is an odd number of vertical columns). Ensuring that the game board is squared up to the game box, mark the center of the 13 holes noted in the second image in this step - If you don't understand why we marked the holes in this specific orientation, please refer back to the previous step that explains how to read a binary clock.
You will next want to find a drill bit that most closely matches the threaded part of the LED holder. Keep in mind that you can always re-drill a hole with a larger bit so err on the side of caution.
Now get that drill! Insert the bit and drill holes in the marks you previously made on the Connect 4 box. Make sure you go completely through the box so that the LED holders will have no problem fitting flush to the box.
