The Art of time management is give
enthusiasm to make our live more
Start with simple thing, we know what we
have should do tomorrow and what we
have done today review it if our mission
today, if not done yet so we need to
sticky the plan to the left day we have
whatever we are, if we are student we
can organize lesson schedule, if we are
worker we can manage our time become
more effectively, day by day will be full of
work no time for trivial chat and our bos
will see how good we organize our work.
The last is if we are inside the group of
work, even every person have a own task
and responsibility, by means of
information board, everybody will know
about progress of works or somebody
need some backup from the other
person. With that way enthusiasm of
communication in teamwork will
inventive for finish the project
There is a lot of media information to
keep us on the time, say that sticky
notes, magnetic white board, and classic
cork board.
Step 1: Start from Idea
This Time let us re-design Classic Cork
Board become more interactive board
Before we get started, let us collect the
idea of main function :
As Public board or information board
everybody can see and follow up
Easy and free to Pin , what ever the paper
we can pin on that board
Every paper that pinned have own alarm
How to make every pin have own alarm ?
why not if we make cork board as
electronic circuit board
Step 2: Main Board
Tools : Jigsaw, Double Tape
Material : Cork Board, Allumunium Foil
In this instructable we will create cut cork
board in size 10 cm x 40 cm and 4,4x 40
cm (Will describe in the next step), this
size is not fix we can create different size
depend of the needs
This Cork Board have two layer, so we
stick double tape to first layer full and
second layer only top and bottom part.
Stick it Allumunium foil to the first layer
with full size and then stick Allumunium
foil with size 7cmx40cm stick it on the
center second layer
The function of Alumunium foil is Ground
layer in electrical environment, but this
time we want to hide it between two
layer of the board so now make a
sandwich of cork board
Step 3: Special Pin
Tools : Jigsaw. Soldering tool
Material : 4 pcs Mini Led, 2 Pcs Buzzer, 6
pcs Cork Pin, Wire Cable (15 cm x 6 pcs )
Cut head of cork pin, and make a little
path carved for put the foot of led and
Solder it, one into pin crock and one to
the wire cable
Dont forget to test it
Step 4: Title Board
We have cut cork board size 4x40 cm in
the previous step
Tools : Drill, Screwdriver, small brush
Material : 7 pair of Nut,bolt and ring 4mm
x10mm, textile tape
For the best making a hole by use drill,
but is not necessary we have made by
screw and push it by screwdriver.
Put screw nut and bolt as 5 volt Terminal
alarm, use screw make alarm pin more
have flexibility to plug or unlplug.
Make a sketch of font title and paint it
Assembly two part of cork board and glue
together with textile tape
Step 5: Electronic time
Tools : Solder
Material :
1. Seven Segment Display : 1 Pcs
2. Resistor 220 Ohm : 1 Pcs
3. PCB board 15x40 mm
4. RTC 1302 : 1 pcs
5. Battery holder + coin battery 3v : 1 pcs
6. Crystal : 1 pcs
7. Wire cable : appropriate number pcs of
8. Arduino Nano : 1 pcs
Follow Wiring picture and there is .ino file
on attached for upload the program into
micro controller (Arduino nano), we use
timeAlarm library for run daily alarm, and
the display only show the date and
With use small micro controller in the end
we can hide on the backside of cork board
Step 6: Board Assembly
Tool : Solder, Screwdriver, Scissor
Material : 1 pcs Screw, 7 pcs Led, Paper
Tape, Wire cable
Make a hole near text "day" by solder for
put the led inside cork board, wrap
positive foot from led with paper tape to
prevent short voltage.
Connect positive foot of the led to the
screw from the backside with wire cable,
place one by each days.
For the ground foot of leds we wrap with
Allumunium foil and joint every ground
Digital date and month display assembly
to the front title board and screw it for
make on position
Step 7: Cut Frame
Tool : Jigsaw, Sender, Wood Glue
Material : Small Nail
Lets make wood frame followed cork
board size, and we can design it for hang
it to the wall or for personal working
calendar we can design to sit on the desk.
Assembly with the final cork board with
the frame and lock i with small nail,
retouch some graphic on board it is time
to experiment our art imagination
Step 8: User Manual
This board need external power 5V from
USB connector same like charging the
mobile phone
and finally ......
