a photo frame clock

clocks are turning out to be one of the favourite items to hack. joyce sent me her rusch wall clock that doubles up as photo frame.

“i dismantled the clock and traced the outside of its insert on a 8×10 photo. cut the photo into a circle with a hole in the middle and reassembled my clock. now i have a great bathroom clock that frames a pleasant memory from a trip to Japan. a new way to showcase your favorite photos!”

    Is it a real clock? It’s really gorgeous. I learned a lot from the comments.

    I wasn’t sure how to dismantle the clock either at first. Hold it in your hands with the clock-face facing you and wiggle the edges until the plastic cover pops out.

    Cool photo choice!

    I’ve made wall clocks using many different brands, and the majority of them open from the front by removing the plastic/glass face shield. You can usually do this with a small flat tool or screwdriver. Just take your time so you don’t scratch the plastic.

    The latest clocks I’m making are all desktop, if anyone wants to see them:
