About

TIMBR is a handcrafted analog clock of your photo from Instagram, Facebook or library printed on wood—creating a beautiful, vibrant and lasting commemoration of your favorite memories, events, or loved ones.

  • Using 3/4" organic, sustainable plywood as our canvas, which provides a warm tone and natural grain pattern 
  • A printing process in Southern California directly printing the ink onto the light-colored wood
  • A metal sculptor in Culver City, California, uniquely etching the hands of the clock
  • We cut, assemble, and package your clock in recycled materials in Los Angeles.

And, of course, TIMBR can't exist without your captured moment as the focal point.

Once you pledge…

  • You will get a customized link that will forward you to TIMBRcraft.com 
  • Your chosen specifications of size, price, and receiving date will be ready for your photo upload
  • As soon as you upload and press submit, we will get to crafting. 

We live in a fast-paced digital world and we rarely take a moment to reflect on our favorite moments.

Perhaps in the midst of your busy-ness, you look up at your clock. Whether it’s your kids laughing as ice cream drips down their fingers, a bridge in the early morning light, or a portrait of your sleeping puppy, that memory is uniquely yours. The warmth of the wood creates another layer. The wood itself evokes earth and timeless nature. It’s the click of your camera that stopped everything and the old-school analog timepiece that suspends your moment.

Time has stopped. You come back to why you’re busy in the first place.

TIMBR is an elegant solution to the passing-time and presence issue. Here are a few ways you can use TIMBR:

  • Eye-catching wall clock. 
  • Photo of loved ones next to your bed.
  • Christmas and Hanukkah gifts.
  • Living-room design piece.
  • Desk reminder while you work.
  • Birthday, Get-well-soon, and co-worker gifts.
  • Appreciation for your staff.
  • Memorializing that trip to Greece. 
  • Come up with your own unique uses for TIMBR!

TIMBR started as an exploration to design a clock that is more than just a timepiece.

At age 15, Roy Dequina decided that he wouldn't complete his woodworking assignment. Instead, he grabbed a square piece of wood, painted it Pollack-style and created a clock. His father was so thrilled with the result that he commissioned Roy to create 15 more for client Christmas gifts. His exploration of time began and paused in high school. 

After a long career in design, Roy brought his exploration of time and woodworking back and paired it with a fascination of photography and social media. 

The result: each TIMBR clock as more than a product. Through Roy's vision, many years in the making, TIMBR is an artistic collaboration combining your unique moments, local business genius, and exceptional design with everyday functionality.

Risks and challenges

DECEMBER 06, 2014 PLEDGE DEADLINE for CHRISTMAS:
We are committed to delivering TIMBR Ornament and the 1st Batch of the MEDIUM size (8x8) in time for Christmas once we reach the $18,000 goal by December 6, 2014. Let’s all work together to make this happen.

General
Manufacturing a product presents several risks. However, we've spent a lot of time building partnerships with experienced manufacturers to mitigate as many risks as possible, but we know there will still be unexpected challenges along the way. We will always be transparent and inform our backers of potential hurdles as they arise.

Ship Date
We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.

Product
To ensure that we deliver the best quality product, we extensively tested prototypes for performance, print quality and durability. This includes manufacturing and testing different inks and clock elements. We have already made over 100 complete TIMBR units in various sizes and wood type to ensure our product is not only beautiful but something you will appreciate as time goes by.

Manufacturing
We have established relationships with experienced contract manufacturers to mitigate the risk of delays by material suppliers and to ensure quality control is implemented to the highest level. We have built test prototypes with our manufacturer and they fully understand our product, specifications and production timeline.

Finally, all our manufacturer and suppliers are located in the Southern California area within driving distance. Unforeseen issues can be discussed and quickly resolved.

Thanks for the support, Kickstarters!
