Step 2:

(side note:  if I were to do this again, I would next use my dremel tool and sand away the "emitter / focusing disc" portion as well as dremel in the curved lines -- on this run I did the sanding after I put the foam blocks on and had a few missteps which you'll see on the close up photos below)
<p>Fantastic idea for my nephew, a fan just like me, or members of my Garrison (Dune Sea Garrison in Phoenix, AZ) for special occasions.</p>
<p>i love it!</p>
<p>really cool</p>
great instructable. made it for my nephew
I attempted to make this by just free handing the design as I wanted to make it for free and happened to have most everything. I sacrificed an old cheap target clock and painted the hands to be like light sabors. I wish I had carved out the dish part instead of the lines but it was too late after I started.
What is this lightning &quot;factory second&quot; prostyle #1 thing? Is this the frisbee?
Yes it is the frisbee.
You should purchase a star wars x-wing and tie fighter mini, they're made of light plastic. You can find them online cheap as chips I bet, just a couple of dollars. Attach them to the ends of the hour and minute hands and they'll slowly zoom around the death star on their trench run.
I love your Death Star clock! Nice work. Great detail! Would love to see a DS II version.<br> <br> Check out the Death Star I &amp; II clocks I submitted as a LEGO Cuusoo project:<br> <br> <a href="http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/16974" rel="nofollow">http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/16974</a><br> <br> (It's a sort-of LEGO Kickstarter, where if a project receives 10,000 votes, LEGO will consider it for production as an actual set.)<br> <br> If you like my project, please vote for it!&nbsp; Thanks!
Sweet! I never would have guessed that started as a frizbee!
Hey, you should enter this into the <a href="https://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
This was a fun and easy gift for my Star Wars brother-in-law. Needless to say he absolutely loved it! Thank you for the idea and tutorial! The only tip I have for everyone is to make the arms of the clock a contrasting sheen or color; the arms i used are hard to read when the pass over the black equator.
Thanks everyone for all the wonderful feedback! I had a fun time making this and hope you will too if you decide to try it. Figured it was a good way of repurposing a Frisbee (or really any disc shaped object), and hopefully something fun you could do with your kids on a rainy day.
That is... AWESOME!! Great idea! I now know what I'm doing over xmas!
A great Idea ,Great peice for the Dark side of the Force.
Good use of a frisbee. Good instructable
Kuddos!!! Such an awsome project!
Obligatory: &quot;That's no Clock!&quot;
Semi-obligatory: &quot;I think it is time we demonstrated the full power of this station.&quot;
Next you need to make a battle damaged Death Star clock.
AWESOME! Can't wait to try this for hubby or my boys. The frugal crafter in me will purchase a super cheap wall clock instead of the kit. I would rate this EPIC.
Possibly unrelated... your office is awesome.
