Announcement   Hello and welcome to my shop on Etsy.

Ever since I can remember, I have been taking things apart. Trying to figure out what makes them tick. One day I was tinkering around and created a clock from a old computer hard drive. I showed a few people and they were impressed so I kept tinkering! My life has not been the same since!!
From old computer hard drives, I moved onto old mother boards and other cool, interesting parts of old computers. Then, while repairing my own road bike, I had the idea to recycle bicycle parts and make clocks out of them. Records and record players came next. Anything I can get my hands on I consider for a clock idea.
What I love most about this work is that … it’s not work! I love what I do! I love that I am, not only able to be creative, but I am also helping the environment by recycling old junk that would likely end up in some land fill.
In 2007, I quit my “real job” to make my clocks full time. It has been a great adventure! I have met some incredible people who eagerly donate materials that they would typically throw in the trash and I have seen the inside of more dumpsters than I could have ever imagined! Every clock I make is an original with a history that we can only imagine. Every ding and dent tells a story. My clocks are not just time pieces but story tellers.
Re-purposing old stuff into cool new stuff is what my craft is all about. Thanks for stopping by. I also have another etsy store at stuffmadefromstuff.

The clock looks really cool! Just a few things to note: 1. It's pretty hefty and requires very sturdy mounting on the wall. I use a masonry hook to mount it up. 2. The footings for this particular design is spring loaded. It only has 3 feet placed according to the turntable centre weight when placed horizontally. It is not in equal distance to keep the turntable in balance...But when placed vertically against the wall, not all feet will rest on the wall nicely since the centre of gravity of the turntable has shifted and require support feet to keep the clock balance well. 3. The packaging for international shipment could be better particularly at the corners. It was dented at the top left corner and I wasn't successful in fixing the corner. Lastly, the clock mechanism used is really quiet and good quality.
