Got these done in the nick of time for X-mas. These are the first ones I used a pattern cutting deal for the panels and the inserts for the top with the toggle switches. I use to do them freehand and it took forever. I use a pattern for the insert and the plunged recess to receive them.

I like the 50’s retro sci-fi look.

Where do you get your clock pieces (escutcheon, bezel)?

The clockworks are Quartz AA battery powered. For these clocks they have to be made of transparent Plastic and have the longest shaft available so the light will go through. They are hard to find. These are also the first ones I used a 3D Printed Clock work light enclosure inside with a special reflective material. ALSO I am having hard time getting WORKING products from of course CHINA. The last shipment of those 4 flicker bulbs the bulb caps pop off with as little pressure as screwing them into the sockets! I now have to take all of them apart and hot glue them together
