A very cool light up clock made by using a Scroll Saw. 

Step 1: Materials/Tools

1 analog clock
1 large piece of plywood
Spray adhesive glue
Scroll Saw or try the Dremel Trio
Hot glue
Movable lamp

Step 2: Trace

Trace the outside of the clock on thin plywood.

Step 3: Cut

Cut with a scroll saw the outside of the clock. 

Step 4: Glue

Step 5: Drilling and Cutting

Drill a hole at the end of each number. Put the round saw in through each hole and cut it out.

Put it all together with the clock movment the clear plastic piece and the frame.

    What is the name of that blade? That's awesome.

    Im not really sure, sorry but its a round one, im pretty sure any one would do.

    there should be some way to make the hour light up only.

    Yup I have a way and if you want me to make it just ask what I could do is add a flat piece of tin cut a hole in it and have it move with the time movement. so that the hour is the only one moving. Don't forget to vote I put lots of hard work into this.

    I like the idea, but i think there should be light up hands too somehow.

    Yea i am going to paint glow inm the dark pint on them so you can see them.

    That is pretty cool. nice idea. ... do you have to worry about the light behind the clock getting too hot?

    I am also thinking of putting glow in the dark paint on the hands so you can see them too.

    No you could use LED or CFL light bulb
