1 laser cut wood clock, you stitch ‘er up.

The unexpected combination of wood and embroidery creates a tactile and beautiful way to tell time. Each clock is made of birch plywood with plenty of character. Holes are laser cut into the wood. Just connect the dots with stitches.

DIY KIT INCLUDES:
• Birch Plywood Disc 8.5” x 8.5” x 1/8" (21.5 cm x 21.5 cm)
• Needle and quality thread
• Clock parts and hands (1 double AA battery not included)
• Wall hanger
• Pre laser cut holes for easy stitching
• Instructions and stitch guide

WHAT IS LASER CUTTING?:
A laser cutter is a machine that precisely cuts through wood and other materials with a high powered laser beam.

SNUG FIT STITCHING:
The holes are not too big or not too small. Each hole in the pattern has been carefully thought out and engineered based on how many passes of thread go through.

INSPIRATION:
This project was inspired by traditional Redwork embroidery from 19th century Europe. Prior to this period, silk was the only thread that would hold its color, but was too expensive for the common man. When a red, colorfast floss was introduced to the market at a reasonable price, embroidery spread like wildfire. It was no longer a craft for the elite. Redwork embroidery becomes a simple, elegant, and inexpensive way to decorate the home.

SHIPPING:
Kits are made by hand in Portland, OR. I ship items out First Class USPS on Thursday and Monday. Please take that into consideration when ordering. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please note that International First Class Mail will not estimate delivery time for packages. Please contact me if you'd like to update your shipping. UK BUYERS: This kit is subject to an import fee (VAT because it's over 15 GBP and coming from outside the EU) by your country, and seems to cost about 14 GBP including a "handling fee". The Post also won't seem to deliver your package until they've left you a note that the fees are due, and you have paid the fee. Unfortunately, we can't pay for this or charge for it in advance! If anyone knows a way to avoid these fees (legally, of course) please let us know!
