Tell us about yourself!
Yep, there are some pictures of the board and the wiring in Step 3. The caps can just be ceramic. The 10uF is just to protect any inrush of current from damaging the neopixels.
Yes, the PCB is Arduino. It has ATMEGA328 microcontroller with Arduino bootloader so its basically an Arduino UNO. You can see how its made here https://www.renaissancemakerlabs.com/2016/11/10/ul... If you just want to use an Arduino UNO in your design just wire the RTC and 7SEG display to the I2C ports of the UNO.

You bet. I've updated the Instructable and include the gerbers and the DipTrace file for the board layout in the Step 3.
You don't really need the holder, just carefully drill holes in the top of the box. Use a bit slightly smaller than the acrylic rods to keep them snug. I only used it because I split the wood when drilling the mounting holes for the acrylic rods and wanted to cover it up. If you drill the holes carefully in the wood and from the outside in it should be fine.
Hey, yep the schematic download link is in the Instructable
Absolutely. The magnet only serves to keep the lid down more securely.

Thanks!If you're interested in using a standard mains AC bulb you'll probably want to use a triac to do the dimming. Check out this post, just be careful working with mains voltage: https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-controlle...This project was effectively made with an Arduino UNO. I just programmed the ATMEGA328 with the UNO bootloader myself. The pin #'s are the same as the UNO and the code will work fine with it. Hope that helps!
Open with the latest Arduino IDE, found here https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/SoftwareYou'll also need to add the required libraries I mentioned, which can be done in the "Manage Libraries" of the "Sketch" drop down in the IDE, for it to work.Hope that helps
Very cool, looks great!
