I've always liked atomic-era clocks but have never been able to afford them (either vintage or reproduction).
I made this similar-looking clock using eggbeaters that were collecting dust at my local thrift store. The center is made from a cheese board, minus the glass dome that usually comes with them.
A full tutorial for this project originally appeared in The Satellite magazine. Now I offer these clocks for sale in my Etsy shop. Check my Flickr profile for the link.
Update: This clock was a winner in the Craft and Hobby Association's Indie Craft Contest and was featured at the 2009 CHA Winter Show.
