I finally finished the outer case of my clock. Only 19 layers of 3mm acrylic stacked on top of each other.

I built a finger slot into the back of the clock so it’s easier to carry, but also to house the barrel jack for mounting the clock flush to the wall, allowong me to hide the power cord in the wall (oneday)

pile of acrylic sheets neetly lined up
This is the pile of acrylic I had to cut out of the inside of the clock.

That pile on the left was cut out to make the cavity in the case.
