    Default NUD: Ukulele Clock

    I combined a cheap soprano ukulele and a 3" clock - both from Amazon - to make this clock.

    Yes. $500 plus shipping.

    I used my Amazon rebate credit, so the uke and clock cost me nothing.

    You have to be careful cutting a hole in a cheapo uke. That cheap laminate tends to spilt easily. I drilled a series of holes and then used a small saw and file to finish it off. The clock cane with a black rubber belt. I guess you would use that to hold it tight in an opening that was a bit too large.

    The clock is pretty quiet, but you can hear the ticking when you get close. As for the uke, that's very quiet.

    I don't have a recorder available, but I'll do my best.

    "Tick...tick...tick...."

    Get the idea?

    Looks great.

    I may try to do something similar, but I'd love to be able to have it chime or play the pitches for G-C-E-A on the hour, kind of like a 'Grandfather Clock' or mantle clock...

    This may be a project that requires the use of a credit-card sized Raspberry Pi mini-computer though...
