This is a large non-mounted free standing clock, but given the piece of wood I had to work with it couldn’t have been anything else.
Burr Oak has a very distinct character like a bubbles forming throughout, and because it’s non-uniform you don’t often find it in mass produced goods. This clock looks like something that came out the dark ages. I love it.
W x H x D – 40cm x 30cm x 5.5cm
All my clocks are hand made by cutting two two single pieces of wood exposing the cross grain, face grain and end grains of the wood. Then treated with Osmo wood treatments to ensure they last a long time. And each product is unique, these pictures are exactly the product you will get, there’s only ever one of them.
I’m Richie. I was born in the UK and have lived in Hampshire on the south coast all my life. I had a good upbringing with 3 brothers, 2 sisters and parents who taught us that life and family were worth more than money or material things. I’m now 41. I’ve been happily married for coming up to 8 years, still living in Hampshire, but now with 4 very talented kids and a less than talented dog! Over the past 20 odd years I’ve worked in IT and I’m pretty good at it, building teams, creating solutions, keeping customers happy, mentoring juniors, and generally being a happy upbeat kind of guy. I’ve worked on some major projects both in the UK and Australia for the police and fire services, and really enjoy my work when it has purpose. Most recently I’ve quit the rat race and started working on short contracts instead which gives me a little bit more free time to try work out what I want to do with the rest of my life.
