I'm planning to have a go at making my own clock from a milk glass plate. I may quickly come unstuck, but my friend Bridget reckons that if I take a plate to a mirror/glass cutting shop, they should be able to cut a hole in the middle for me? Then, I just need to add the clock mechanism, which I am sure I should be able to find online. A quick one-minute search found these mechanisms for making a CD clock (same principle), and I'm sure I can find something which is better quality.
This conversation came about because we saw some plate clocks in Liberty on Saturday, but they ranged from £60 - £80. I'm certain the total cost to make your own should be more like £5. Watch this space.
