Hej All, I'm trying to build my own nixie clock, similar to the clocks here: https://nixiedream.com
but with different nixie tubes, perhaps the smallest nixies - IN-12 tubes. They are just 15mm in diameter. I foresee no issues with its schematic and PCB, but a casing for the nixie clock seems to me a challenge. Should it be classical or modern, completely wooden or mixed with some brass? I would appreciate if you can share your ideas or give some examples. Thanks!

Fair warning, I'm a bit of a retro fan.
My suggestion would be to visit second hand shops, charity stores and similar sellers to find an item from the 50s or 60s that could be converted/perverted to your case - preferably something in Bakelite, enameled steel or brushed aluminum.
