I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Geek Extraordinaire. Yeh, I said it.

CRT Clock Case

With the electronics complete, the frame 3D-printed, and the code complete, it was time to design the laser-cut acrylic case.

I jumped into Inkscape and put something together.

Ponoko was on the money this time. I submitted my order on Sunday, they made it on Monday and shipped it out the same day. I had it in-hand on Wednesday. That's the fastest turnaround I've seen yet.


It came out awesome, and I nailed all the holes for the feet, the buttons, and the power jack.


It all went together perfectly.


I'm really proud of this one. I learned a lot from this project, and it was a lot of fun. It has a little bit of everything: PCBs, coding, 3D-printing, laser cutting. I put a lot of work into it, and I think it came out great. It's probably my most unique clock yet.

I can't wait to see what's next! Maybe an arcade?
