Step 1: Make Design With Corel Draw Software
I use software Corel Draw to draw the clock with exact dimension. The sofware helps me to imagine how the clock looks before I make it.
After complete the design, I re-arrange each layer to prepare for cutting
If you like this design, you can download it here (http://bit.ly/2KPNq4K), then print out to make your own this clock
Step 2: Cut Each Layer by Laser Cnc Machine
I use MDF wood 3mm thickness to make the clock. Then using laser cnc machine to cut it as design file in step 1
Laser cnc machine will help to cut in exact dimension as drawing. If you don't have cnc machine, then you can cut it by hand with jigsaw
Step 3: Install Each Layer Together
After cutting, the MDF wood will have burnt mark at the edge, so we should clean it by wet cloths
Then, we glue each part together as in design file
Step 4: Install Clock Machine
The clock machine can be easily found on market, or you can take it from an old clock
Then, we install clock machine into frame as in step 3. And final step is to install the needles
That's it! It is easy to make a beauty and unique art clock, right? Now you can design and make your own a clock for yourself, or for others as a gift
