Step 4:

then spray painted the whole thing in semi gloss black (but any black will work I think) - paint was still wet in this image.  The textural difference between the foam blocks and the frisbee was quite nice once the paint was on.
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 "factory second" 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="http://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.
