I'll let the clock speak for itself, but I think spelling out the numbers is crucial and I also like how they are randomly placed around the game board.   



Here's how to make it:
First drill a hole through the center star, when you look at the board, you'll notice it's off center, but I think the star is the place to drill!



In order for the board not to fold over onto itself, the back should be braced with a two small wooden rulers.  Use wood glue to attach the two pieces, so they cross the middle fold


See the fold:  You want to prevent this from moving. 


Now use the same wood glue to attach the tiles, use the glue sparingly and quickly remove any glue that seeps from underneath the tile.



Place several heavy books over the top of the tiles, to weight them in place, allow the tiles to dry in place for several hours and perhaps overnight. 



Once dry, insert the clock mechanism, assemble the clock and hang that baby! 



Finished project, I guess you could also use different words in place of the numbers, as long as they are in the same location. 


Happy National Craft Month!

This is sooo awesome!

I would have nver thought of giving up scrabble for a clock, but it's just so unique that it's bound to stand out and bring lots of compliments. Quite the discussion piece, I'm sure Smiley

I love it!  Kiss

Thanks for all of the compliments.  I actually got this board at the thrift store, I too wouldn't want to give up a game for the clock, but if it only cost $2.00 I'm game (pardon the pun) Grin

This is so clever and just...awesome. I've never felt the desire to make a clock before, but now I think I need to go buy an extra scrabble board (I will not sacrifice my actual game)! Thanks for the excellent tutorial and the great idea!
