John and Mark Schlabaugh

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. collection

        Comments about 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.

              This product arrived about 6 inches smaller than expected. I laughed when I opened the box, it was like , it had to be joke how small it was compared to how it was represented in the catalog.

              My husband likes intersting wood, as do I. We prefer the modern/mid-century modern style and the clock fits into our decore beautifully.

                  I gave this item to my husband. Because he is a woodworker himself, giving this item could have been risky. However, he if very much a perfectionist when it comes to his woodworking, and he appreciates good workmanship, and unique items. This clock meets both those criteria and my husband loved it. It is quite beautiful, it is striking with its "wave" design, and is excellent quality. It does have a small clock face but I knew that from reading product description and other reviews and am totally fine with that - I did not purchase it so it would be a primary time keeper for him but instead a functional piece of art.

                        This clock was much smaller than pictured and, well, in a word....TINY for a desk piece. I had purchased 3 clocks for the 3 doctors I work for, and had to return them as they were so small that they we comical.

                            I would not buy this again. It's too small. The clock face is the size of a watch face.
