Carefully, says Mr.
We can't emphasize that point
enough. Carefully cut each piece and really do make use
of the straight-edge for not only cutting out the pieces, but
also for scoring the pieces along "fold" lines.
Cut out piece 1 through 22,
which will form the bars of the framework for the clock.
Cutting the "fold" lines as accurately as possible is
important: when you form the poles, any swerve or unevenness
in the folds will torque the poles and even a little torque
can make assembling the frame frustrating. Fortunately,
some twist will get corrected when the whole frame comes into
place and is glued together.

is marked, the scoring lines should be ++++ instead of ----.
out and assemble Pieces 23-26. These will make a wall
bracket. The arms on the bracket stick out and the
framework will rest in top of those arms.

At this point, you can also
assemble pieces 29-32, which will eventually become the parts
that keep the hands of the clock in place.
Also, in the instructions
here, Mr. Randolph suggests seeking out a whole series of
piece and piercing the centers with pinholes, to help you
locate the centers on both sides later. Definitely do
this!! I'm not kidding.
And tamp down that feeling of
accomplishment and euphoria. You're only at piece 32.
