This is how I remade a dull, shelf alarm clock, and made it into an interesting mantle clock.
- A small, quartz clock (quartz meaning = electric)
- Hot glue (gun and sticks)
- Carvey (mini CNC machine)

Step 1: Find a Clock
Find a clock in your house. A clock that is preferably small and expendable.
Step 2: Deconstruction
Deconstruct the clock until you only have the main clock functions intact. (as seen in the picture)
Step 3: Digital Fabrication
Design the product on a CAD program. (such as Tinkercad)
(The design can be anything. I changed my design many times.)
Step 4: Carve the Parts
Carve the MDF into parts for building the housing for the clock.
Step 5: Construct Final Piece
Construct your product using the materials you carved and the hot glue.
