Step 3: The Case
For the case, you can use pretty much anything. I used Rimu, a native timber to New Zealand. I used a mill to cut out tracks and recesses for the "Sandwich" of the board, reflector, diffuser and window to sit in and the whole assembly slides in from the bottom. There is also a thin recess for the rear of the clock to sit in, this is made from a thin sheet of plastic. Buttons to press the switches were turned up on a lathe.
