The Floating Hand April 19 MANUFACTURE!  The time is here and we are finally staring the manufacturing process. Although the case for the clock would normally be made out of cast metal ( precision aluminium unibody enclosure) or injected plastic, lacking the budget we decided to do an interesting walk around. After cutting many layers of mdf, we started to glue them together into a single piece. In order to save some material, we sectioned the circles into two half and then glued them together (as seen in the picture). Now are just waiting for it to dry to start sanding, depending on the size of irregularities we will probably have to do some extra work with a wood filler or some bondo, like the one used in car repairs.  In a matter of days, you won’t be able to tell how with did this… in its place a beautiful stainless steel casted part will shine!
