The 5 to 9 clock demonstrates the fleeting time available each day and symbolically represents the counterbalance of modern life.
The funding of this project will go towards a large production run of the 5 to 9 clock and development of Lamplabs' forthcoming lighting line. Your support will be vital to this new creative endeavor. The goal here is to raise enough funds to produce a large production run in order to validate the economics of the product. Any profits will be invested in extra clock inventory to introduce the product to brick an mortar stores as well as business startup costs. You can learn more about Lamplabs here.
Let’s face it; most of us enjoy about 8 hours a day where we aren’t at work or asleep. The 5 to 9 clock seeks to remind us of the value of these fleeting times and symbolically represents the counterbalance required to achieve a measured life.

Here is more info regarding the $50 level reward:
While working on a one-of-a-kind chair, I was inspired to use yardsticks to make a table trivet. Three layers of yardsticks are bent together with glue to hold a curve. After further cutting and gluing, they are finished with a Danish oil treatment.
Here is more info regarding the $100 level reward:
Backers at the $100 level have the option of choosing a custom clock face material. The available choices are Cherry veneered MDF, 3 ply amber bamboo or Maple plywood. Color and grain swatches are below...
