The original watch from wooden sticks!
You will need:
- popsicle sticks (well, or another ice cream);
- beads (color optional);
- unnecessary CD-ROM;
- plastic bottle cap;
- clock mechanism with arrows;
- strong thread (flagella);
- Super glue;
- drill (screwdriver).
1. The project uses 44 ice cream sticks and about 84 beads, but you can choose the amount of both of them at your discretion.
2 Take one stick and make 2 holes on it. One hole should be located on the edge (approximately 5 mm from the edge). The second hole should be approximately 20 mm. from the other side.
3. Use the hole wand prepared in the previous step as a template. Collect the Sticks with a pile, and place the template on top so that you can see where to drill the holes.
4. When drill all the holes, take a strong thread and beads, and then proceed to the assembly. Simply thread the thread through the hole (which is farther from the edge), plant a pair of beads, and then put on the next stick.
5. Through the bottom holes (which are closer to the edge of the wand), also thread a strong thread.
6To create a smooth circle, as well as control the required length of the structure, use a cap from a plastic bottle. Just place it in the center, and along the contour lay out the assembled structure of rods.
7. When the required length has been assembled, thread the ends of the threads through the corresponding holes of the first and last sticks (as shown in the figure).
8. Tighten well, so that the first and last sticks are tightly pressed together. All this fix a few knots. Moreover, the nodules should be located on the side of the clock, which will be back in the future.
9. Take the stopper from the plastic bottle and drill a hole in its center. The hole should correspond to (or be slightly larger) the size of the pin on the clockwork.
10. Insert a stopper with a hole in the previously assembled structure. Please note that the flat side of the cork with a hole should be on the front side. It is advisable to glue the cork to stiffen the whole structure.
11. From the back of the watch, attach the CD, as shown in the figure below. This operation is fundamental in ensuring the rigidity of the whole structure.But be careful with glue, do not blurt a lot, otherwise the watch will lose its elegant look. It would be best to glue around the circumference in the place where the sticks fit most closely together.
12. Using a super glue, glue the quartz movement to the CD. Notice that the pin for the clock should protrude from the other side.
13. Set the hour, minute and second hands.
14. Everything's ready! It remains to install the batteries and hang the clock in the right place. Now they will be pleasing to the eye and remind you of what you are skilled craftsmen and skilled workers.
Alternatively, you can use the design as a stand (without clockwork).
