Because of the large sections, we recommend you make this clock out of plywood 1/4 inch thick for the sides and 1/2 inch thick for each horizontal floor. For the exterior, 10 packs of plywood are required. For the interior box structure (excluding the floors), 10 more packs are required. To make the floors, we recommend using one 4 inch x 4 inch sheet of 1/2 inch thick quality grade plywood.
