I took my old iHome apart. The speakers didn’t work and the some of the buttons were malfunctioning. So I got rid of all the unnecessary components.
I traced the clock screen onto the back of the cork top and cut it out with an Xacto knife, then hot glued it to the cork. The cork flaked a bit in some areas so if I redo it I might try another technique.
I positioned the circuit board and hot glued the button and nobs components directly to the inside of the box.
The top is held on by magnets which were hot glued as well.
