Wooden Nixie Clock: Where Nature Meets Technology

by Paul Strauss

I don’t know what it is, but I’m a real sucker for Nixie tube clocks. There’s something about the soothing orange glow tubes that offer a simple, yet elegant way to display any numeric information. I hadn’t seen a design that really caught my eye in a while, when I stumbled onto this wooden beauty.

The clock features a set of dramatic surface-mounted Nixie tubes which peek through the front of the warm reddish African Sapele wood case.

The only thing keeping me from putting one of these clocks on my mantle is the fact that it’s only sold as a kit. And between writing this blog, a day job (yes, I have one of those too), and trying to retain some semblance of a life, it’s almost impossible to envision having the time to build this sucker.

Nixie Clock Kit Circuit

For those of you with more free time (and are more adept with your soldering skills than I), the kit comes with everything you need to build the clock, including pre-cut wood case parts, 6 Nixie tubes, a couple of bright neon bulbs for the hour:minute separator, and all the electronic parts you need. In all, there are 115 parts you’ll need to put the clock together.

If you’ve got the time on your hands to build your own clock, you can find this kit (along with a variety of other Nixie kits) from eBay seller Neonixie.
