Preparing the case for the dial and clock mechanism

The dial and clock mechanism are attached to a thin plywood backing board, which in turn is screwed to cleats glued to the inside of the case. Cut two cleats to fit along the inside face of the case side panels between the top panel and the divider. Cut a third one to run along the inside face of the top panel between the side panels. To help you mark the positions of the cleats, test-fit the clock in the case, remembering to allow for the doors. Once the cleat position is certain, spread glue on the contacting surfaces between the cleats and the case, and clamp the cleats in place (above).
