Digital Clock #1: A Clockwork Mahogany: Making a digital clock

1075 days ago by Wes Grimes | 9 comments »

I don’t know what time it is!!! If only I had a clock!But not just any clock. A four foot long digital clock made out of antique mahogany wood. Guess it is time to make some sawdust! I bought a board of reclaimed mahogany from woodcraft: Then I created a pattern for the led segments: I used a scroll saw to cut the segments out of the wood, and a plunge router to hollow out the back side of the wood: Add some wood varnish to the top side: I used little pieces of brass supe...

Traffic Light Project #4: Assembly test (video)

1292 days ago by souichiro | 1 comment »

Well, today was a great day for this project :) I was able to get the lenses and hoods mounted, and the entire circuit mounted on a temporary base for testing. It all works! One change is that I will make the base “box” as a light controller only for now. I am afraid that I won’t be able to complete it by his birthday (a week away from delivery). So what I plan on doing is making a box for the base that has the light control circuit in it. And then I can make a ̶...

Here is the final (as of this point) wiring on the light controller circuit. I’ll get the power controller for this part added shortly. This is a really simple circuit with only two IC’s. One is a 555 timer chip that will create a pulse at an interval determined by adjusting a potentiometer (from about 2 a second all the way to about 4 or 5 seconds). This pulse is sent to a 4017 decade counter chip that will cycle outputs after each pulse received. So it basically counts fro...

Traffic Light Project #2: Finally some progress....

1296 days ago by souichiro | 1 comment »

Today marked two days in a row of progress on my light project. This, after over a week of beating my head on the bench with the electronics on the lighting. But….. finally I have the basic light circuit wired and working, and tested with the actual lights that will be mounted in when it’s complete. Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...
