Time Warped

This desk clock defies the very nature of hardwood with its sinuous design: a sleek ribbon of richly-striped, laminated zebrawood displays the clock face, wrapping around itself to flow seamlessly into a stand. Woodworking brothersJohn and Mark Schlabaugh have created a handmade, modern design with organic materials that will complement the decor of any desk or shelf. Handmade in the USA.

Brothers John and Mark Schlabaugh began making oak cutting boards and serving trays from left over stair tread scraps from their father's home construction business—a business that helped them learn their way around the tools and art of woodworking. Thirty some years later, their work has evolved and has most recently been sold in the Renwick Gallery and National Gallery of Art at the Smithsonian, the Gamble House in Pasadena, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Mark's style of choice is more contemporary in nature, while John enjoys designing work that is Arts & Crafts and Greene & Greene-inspired. Together, they combine their aesthetics to create pieces that are known for top-quality workmanship while maintaining prices that make the work affordable.

My Father loved it!!

Comments about UncommonGoods Zebrawood Ribbon Clock:

Purchased this for my dad's Fathers Day gift. He says it is beautiful but a bit small. He said that it was made with quality wood and did not feel cheaply made. He was happy with it so I am happy with it.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Zebrawood Ribbon Clock:

    I bought this as an office clock. Shame on me for not looking at all of the pictures of the product, or looking at the dimensions. It is hardly larger than a men's watch. Not sure what anyone would use such a tiny clock for - you can't see the hands from very far away, and it is completely impractical. Although it is fairly cute, it feels cheaply made and does not keep particularly reliable time. A total waste of money for me. I got this as a replacement for a gift I returned, so it was not worth paying the shipping charges twice (once on the gift return and again to return this) to try to get something better. Very disappointing.

    Clock is best for a desktop as the face is too small to read from a distance. The wood is beautiful though.

        Pretty but small

        By 

        from Alabama

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about UncommonGoods Zebrawood Ribbon Clock:

        I bought this for my husband's desk. It is as beautiful as the picture looks but it is tiny. I read all the other reviews and assumed it was just the clock face that was small, but no, the whole thing is tiny. I am pleased with it because it is pretty but I wish it was a bit larger. For the price I thought it was too small.
