Okay. To set this straight, I am aware that this has been done before. But I thought, 'I'd like to make somthing with my Cavendish & Harvey Cola Drops tin' and I decided on this. Thus, in the spirit of sharing I decided to make a guide for my creation, however unoriginal it may be.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials (And Tools)
To make the Lid-clock, you will need the following:
ONE Cheap-o clock mechanism w/appropriate washers, spacers and (of course) clock hands.
FOUR Plastic drinks bottle tops, or appropriate diameter equiv.
ONE Pillar drill w/9mm, or appropriate size, drill bit (depending on the clock mechanism of your choosing).
ONE Hammer and awl.
SOME E-poxy resin if required.
AND ONE Set of pliers to tighten said clock mechanism.
Got them? Good, then let us begin.
