HOW- TO: CREATE AN LED CLOCK WITH A DESIGN

Create a wooden clock in the shape of your favourite logo or design!

STEP 1

Create a design or print an existing design template and trace this on to a piece of wood. Using a Dremel Multi- Tool such as the Dremel 3000 and the Dremel Plunge Router cut out the outline. This will give you an accurate design.

STEP 2

Trace the same design template with a marker onto a sheet of Plexiglass. With the Dremel 3000 and the Dremel Plunge Router cut out this outline which will be the exact same shape as the wood. By joining these two together you will create a stronger structure.

STEP 3

Using the Dremel 3000 and sanding accessories such as the Dremel SC407 EZ Speedclic Sanding Mandrel and Sanding Bands, sand any uneven edges to create a perfectly smooth finish.

STEP 4

You will now need to create a plastic backing support using Plexiglass to give the clock structure and support and help it to stand freely. Use the Dremel DSM20 to create clean and straight cuts.

STEP 5

Paint and decorate the wood with your design and assemble the electronic elements. Your clock is now ready to be used!
