So I really like these George Nelson clocks
http://www.lumens.com/lumens/product.asp?s_id=0&prod_name=Ball+Clock+by+George+Nelson&pf_id=PAAAIAMJOEHLKHCI&dept_id=4023

But there is no way that I would pay $300 for a clock, so I decided to make my own version of the Starburst clock. Not exactly like the original, but the best part about mine is that it costs me only about $20 to make and I was able to get all the supplies I needed to make it from my local craft store.





Thanks for looking  Smiley

Awesome!!! Smiley Smiley Your version looks like it's definitely worth more than $20 & is just as cool as the 'original'!

There is really nothing to it. It is made up of a pre-cut wooden circle for the base, wooden dowels, and wooden beads.

I spray painted all of the pieces and then measured out the placement of the holes for the dowels so that they would be evenly spaced and then drilled the holes.

I used wood glue to attach the beads to the end of the dowels and then also glued them to the base of the clock.

I drilled a hole in the back of the base and then popped in the clock guts.

I hope that helps  Smiley

If you end of making one I would love to see it.

Ok, this is just too cool.  I looked at the original clock, and I def like yours better.

It looks like it should be easy enough to make one.  Maybe I'll give it a try.

wow, that looks great!  It would look great in my kitchen too.  I am looking at a spot on the wall now where I could picture something like that!

Nifty!  I definitely like your version better than the original one, it's much more elegant and classy.
