"You light up my clock"

Picture of
 This what a guy does when he sees a contest about light and a light bulb goes off in his head. I had some rope lighting laying around and I saw the contest for a lighting challenge. I looked around the room I was in and the obvious slapped me in the face! Something told me, "light the clock"... and a plan was hatched.

 So, I got me some rope lights, hot glue gun, drill with a 5/8 forstner bit. ( I like forstner bits because they leave a nice clean hole).

Step 3: Run and glue lights.

I hooked three strings of rope light together end to end, ran the lights through  the holes I drilled (refer to step 2) ............
After I had the lights where I wanted them I used a hot glue gun with wood glue sticks. Ive found the wood glue seems to work better when gluing on wood.............. Anyway, don't over do it with the glue you don't need much. I used about six spots to hold in my lights.
