Faceted designs give a certain grace to the things especially if they are the DIY ones. This is why we came upon the idea of making a DIY faceted wooden alarm clock. To make this faceted wooden alarm clock, all you need to do is to make a faceted wood cover for the clock to fit inside it. The template for this DIY faceted alarm clock is a little bit tough but don’t worry as we have placed the template here you can follow.
Supplies required for making the DIY faceted wooden alarm clock are as follows.
- Plywood sheets; 2 sheets of 5 * 10 inches
- Alarm clock
- X-Acto knife
- Cutting mat
- Low temperature glue gun
- Clock template
- Spray adhesive
The first step to making the DIY faceted wooden alarm clock is to measure the size of your alarm clock and size the template for fitting with its specifications. You can use the print below for fitting with your clock’s specifications.
In case you are making use of the paper for shape, then you need to sue the spray adhesive for gluing the paper to the sheet of template. Glue your template on the paper’s backside. And if you are using the wood for shape, then print one more copy of the template for use as a reference.
Cut the shapes out for your alarm clock’s button, clock face and its plug before assembling it. An advise here to be exact in cutting this template or the facet will both fit with it perfectly.
If you make use of the wood, start with cutting of the wood in shapes of the template you have printed. When all of them are cut out, start gluing those pieces with each other with the glue gun. And in the case of using paper, fold your template sheet along the fold lines and then use either glue or tape for attaching the cut points with each other.
Once the piece is assembled, match it with the clock to see if it fits. You can also paint this faceted clock frame if you choose to. Now attach the clock with the wooden frame with the glue on its back and front.
Plug the clock inside this wooden faceted and set your alarm clock. Buttons can be accessed easily from the wood or paper as both of them are really thin as the pressure is placed over them.
