Hi all, this is my first Instructable, the first thing I've to say is ....

sorry about my English , I'm from Spain and i speak a little but, I'm not an englishman.

with a old bedroom clock, some cardboard recycled from a cereal box, an few tools iv'e made this "curious" clock

Step 1: Gather materials

Simple and cheap:

List of materials:

- A little clock
- some cardboard ( from a cereal box better, the one I've used is too thick)
- a ruler
- x-acto and cutter
- heavy paper, one picture... anything you want to the front of the clock
- superglue
- adhesive paper
- a template counterclockwise for hours , mins, and secs.( The mine is attached)

Please put the PDF version of the template. BTW, you have good English!
Pdf file attached.<br><br>Thanks!
Can you save the face you did for the clock in a diffrent file format? Cause I cant open a eps file.
Yeah, please save in like bmp or pdf. i cannot open it either.
what about using pdf format? (porque no lo pusiste en pdf, es mejor)
For rescaling pursposes, i think than the EPS is more estandard to edit in all platforms, if you want a PDF file I'll attach it easily. ( resumiendo, que el EPS me parece mas comun para editarlo en todas las plataformas, si necesitas un PDF lo pongo sin problema)
You can open an EPS file on Illustrator.<br />
I thought a more universal format would be .svg
WELL I THOUGHT THE UNIVERSAL FORMAT WOULD BE... It doesn't mater too much, someone convert, thats whats the communities for! Anyways... Nice ible. Love it! -Nice man... Nice, Chris
PDFs are more universal, and can be scaled on a photocopier if required.
I agree. I cant download the file...but the instructable looks awesome.
Made this with a $2 IKEA clock, and it now hangs in our planetarium office. Thanks for the great instructable!
Nice work, tH0RiN! I might try something like this at some point. Keep up the great work!
This definitely reminds me of my favorite watch. <br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.stauer.com/item/Stauer-1930-Dashtronic-Watch/15457">http://www.stauer.com/item/Stauer-1930-Dashtronic-Watch/15457</a><br/>
Great job! your English is good enough to get the point across. I am into weird clocks and just built a Nixie clock. I am thinking of making a small one of these and making it look like an aircraft's instrument panel.
Very nice Job!!!!! Me encanta, puede que lo haga me encanta tambien que haya españoles por aqui saludos

thats quite a good idea :)
Whats with the dp?
I never thought about making this type of clock in watch form, but i do have a wristwatch made by Nixon called The Murf. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.nixonnow.com/watches/mens/the-murf-A074_401.html">http://www.nixonnow.com/watches/mens/the-murf-A074_401.html</a>. Great idea, i think i may try to make this but in a square version like my watch.<br/>
Wow this is awesome and creative =D and your english is pretty good.<br/>
I really want to make one, but I'm never close to electronics, so I don't know how to make it. I don't see the second hand and the minute hand?
Thanks for the great idea. I wasn't reading too properly but I'm going to ask, why do you need the template things?
Oh wow this is really ingenius
Don't worry about your skills with the English language, there are just a few commas out of place on occasion by what I can tell, and that's better than hte majority of people I speak to where I live in America. Also, brilliantly thorough job.
How does it work? Does the disk spin, showing the number and time?
yes , it's it. the disk spins instead the hands.
I like it!
Cool! Yours looks like some sort of a nuclear era device. I like it. fav.
Good idea.
I used <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/VHS_Cassette_Clock/">something similar</a> - but this is much more accurate. Nice job!<br/><br/>L <br/>
awesome coffee table decoration
