Jim Williams style Digital Clock

Cody Shaw made this crazy looking clock inspired by Jim Williams.

While I was working on my clock project, I had the idea of creating a clock cube that would be encased in epoxy resin. Not only would it be functional, but it would look cool as you would be able to see the innards of the clock.

As I worked on the skeleton of the clock, I noticed that it looked similar to something that you would see in a Jim Williams datasheet! I decided to continue the project under that motif.

I have yet to encase the clock in epoxy resin, as I am afraid that it won’t go well. Putting the clock together took a day and a half of work, and I wouldn’t want that to go to waste. I will hopefully get a chance to test some resin casts on small items sometime soon.
