Stanley Ruiz's crafty raw wood clock
Goodbye daylight saving time; hello new clock? For those who are bored with digital timekeepers, crafty industrial designer Stanley Ruiz has a more earthy alternative: clocks made from doilies and river rocks.
His raw wood clock, shown here, is an entirely different tribute to natural materials. Ruiz uses a computer-controlled milling machine, known in the design world as a CNC machine, to create a clean and precise clock face complemented by sleek aluminum hands. The 2-foot leather strap gives his modern timepiece the appearance of an old-fashioned canteen, making it suitable for a kitchen wall or a wood-paneled den.
The 10-inch-diameter clock is $250 at Fitzsu.
