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 1: Disassemble clock
To be on the safe side and to prevent any damage I removed the clock top, weights and pendulum.
