Thoughts On Wooden Wall Clocks
All Goathopper clocks are wooden. So why make a special page about "wooden" clocks? HINT: google search likes lots of descriptive categories. You'll notice wooden rustic clocks for sale online where someone has applied an image of wood grain in the form of a crude "sticker" onto a piece of plywood. This makes the Goathopper shudder. A Goathopper clock has a base of rustic rough cut pine wood that has braved the elements due to its use in pallets. Online you'll see a frequent (and inferior) substitute for wood: In the wall decor industry it’s called MDF, which stands for medium density fiberboard.
Basically it is minute particles of wooden discards glued together and essentially a more robust cousin to cardboard. Not exactly nature friendly. As evidence, try setting a large cardboard box in your yard for a week. At the end you'll find a slimy, paper mess. One design we're considering is wall clock that doubles as a kitchen timer. It's very much in the early stages though. Whether it's when to ring the dinner bell or pull out the oven casserole, nothing offers the charm and accuracy like a Goathopper.
