You know those clocks that synchronize with the Greenwich world clock for accuracy? This one doesn't do that. It is handmade though and joins gum grey, smoky beige and surf blue with auras of a summer house porch at dusk. Its' rustic complexion comes from a 10 step, 2 day distressing process created through years of trial and error.
We select pallet wood from Fiji to France that's accumulated a lifetime of nicks and bruises. A wooden clock with this much charm and rusticity would otherwise take decades using store bought wood. Constructed for permanence, Goathopper wall clocks are to be passed down for generations.
The Shasta is a member of our Beach collection where sun-battered coloring and subdued distressing make for a beach clock that's both mirthful and rustic. Whether it's urban modern, coastal or rustic farmhouse design Goathopper clocks have proven adaptable to any wall in the house including the den, kitchen or on an outdoor porch.
NOTE: We could make you a clock in a day, but it would show. The real deal takes 1 to 2 weeks. Only then does it earn the famous Goathopper seal and logo on the face. We've been told it's well worth the wait.

Will my wall clock look just like the one pictured?
Years of pallet duty in the elements impart each plank with its own unique grain, coloring and topography. Your Goathopper will not be identical to the one shown, nor should it. It is made and meant only for you.
How quickly will I receive my clock?
We could make you a clock in a day, but it would show. The real deal takes 1 to 2 weeks. Only then does it earn the famous Goathopper seal and logo on the face. We've been told it’s well worth the wait.
How should I care for my Goathopper wall clock?
The tough pallet wood from your clock has been battered by forklifts, rain and abuse so it’s not especially needy. While we don’t recommend leaving it in the elements without cover, a Goathopper presently works just fine on a screened porch where last year it ranged from a bitter 5 to a humid 104 degrees.
Why do you use old pallet wood?
CONSERVATION We give new life to battered and old pallets. All of our wood is 100% re-purposed so no trees are sacrificed. Moreover, we involve our customers in the effort. When you buy a clock, we plant a tree. We've been called tree huggers on more than one occasion and we're proud of it.
RESILIENCE It's tough. The blue collar of wood. Otherwise it would not have been selected for pallet duty. Right?
CHARACTER Our wood is worldly and comes from places like Poland, Argentina, Thailand and more. In a previous life it delivered everything from olive oil to umbrellas so each plank has a story to tell. Every bump and nick along the way adds up to a handsome, weathered complexion.
What is a Goathopper?
Legend is in many Caribbean villages there used to exist a man called the Goathopper. He would collect from your land all the dried goat dung, prized for its use as a fuel and in making coffee. As payment for his service he would keep 1/2 of the day's dung collection and offer it for sale on his route. Goathoppers were a cheerful and happy go lucky sort and were quick with an amusing joke or story. Our mission is to infuse the Goathopper's spirit into every handmade clock.
