Picture of Everyone Has to Make an Infinity Clock ,its the Law!

I wanted to make a timelaps video of the making of an infinity clock, (practice for the timelaps bookbinding) ,however the camera i used can use its battery faster than i can charge it.

it recorded until the point of getting the lights working, i only noticed it had stopped after the clock was complete.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

That tool layout with the pop up names was sensational. Never seen that done before. Well done!
