Bits arrived, the project happened :-)
Boxes were bought from the Range, I think they are meant for découpage or something but work well as little wooden project boxes it seems.
Also, add extra magnets in addition to the 'clasp' magnet.
Cut hole for Arduino Nano to poke through (Power and programming):
A bit messy but the wood is softer than I thought, will be filled with something (probably hot-melt glue) and will be unseen.
Filled with glue making it flush:
Measure twice, and cut hole for bubble display:
Mount and solder the bits. including plug for front which allows the thing to separate into 2 parts, making it easier to work on just one bit.
The 6th wire (clear) is in place for future use with a light sensor, but it dims itself at 10pm and brightens at 7am so its not a problem at the moment.
I wish the camera would focus on LED's properly, but hey ho.
