    When I was a kid in the 80's, I saw an ad somewhere for a book that claimed the book could be cut apart, and glued together into a working clock. I wanted it BAD. I eventually forgot about it.

    I just remembered this the other day, and I did some searching. It's still in print! I've got one ordered right now! I paid $16 for it, but after some more searching I found it for as low as $6.

    I can't wait to build this stupid thing. Has anybody ever seen this before, or built one?

    Yes, but can you make paper out of a clock?

    Well yes, if the clock was originally made of paper like this one is.

    Sounds kind of nifty.

    Wouldn't it have been cheaper (and quicker) to just by a small clock?

    Yeah, what's the fun in that?

    Anyway, I'm going to scan all the pages before I cut them up, in case I make a mistake, or want to build another one.
    I've read some reviews of it, and it sounds like the project from hell, but I can't wait to try!
