For this clock i'm not going to use a donor clock, instead i'm going to build it from aluminium profile and cover it with plywood. This will give it a nice industrial look.

Ordered aluminium profiles and 90 degree connectors from Misumi and m3 x 8mm hex screws. And after 10 minutes fiddling it looked like this. Just a quick pre-assembly so the alignment is still a bit off.
