Back in the good old days, people didn’t have the luxury of easily buying a radio due to cost. Also unlike today, the manufacturers were not as rampant. But thanks to some courses, people were able to come up with radios on their own, assembling them using discarded wood and putting their electronic engineering to good use just to be able to listen to news and/or music.
Today this may be a rarity but for some people, the practice lives on. And such has produced this Steampunk Cigar Box Digital Alarm clock with a lamp as well, all made from repurposed materials, including a cigar box. Other features include a 40W bulb which are controlled by a full-range center-mounted dimmer control, allowing you to use this as either a soft night-time reading lamp or a nightlight at your bedside.
The digital alarm clock is embedded and are operated by controls you will find on top of it. The clock controls are acorn nuts, used to set the time/alarm minutes and seconds, and a toggle switch to enable/disable the alarm. Instructions for use come with the piece.
The Steampunk Cigar Box Digital Alarm Clock with Lamp is available over at Etsy for about $100.
