Since almost three years now, I've been eating lunch at school using the same disposable fork. This plastic flatware people use like toilet paper is actually quite sustainable when used for a long period of time. While I keep my little polystyrene fork in my school bag, I notice that most students' desks are filled with dirty plastic spoons, plates, coffee cups and more forks. (Design education...)
I had to create a clock for an auction benefiting students in industrial design. I only had to look on five different tables to get what I needed.

Step 1: Stuff

Picture of stuff
YOU WILL NEED :

6 cleaned forks
6 cleaned soup spoons
Polystyrene sheet less than 5 mm of thickness
A clock mechanism
Gorilla or Super glue

You might want to use different colored hands for ease in use. Maybe white.

Great look. I had an idea some while back to do this with regular flatware. Yours is probably more easily doable and possibly better looking.
Brilliant idea, and it looks SO contemporary and stylish! I love it!

To make the '12:00' position stand out, you could use a knife for that position.
