The tube wood finds its origin in how the tube project started off. The initial idea was to create a clock that you could build and modify yourself. But we found the existing clock so beautiful that we developed it further, rather than making it a DIY clock. It just goes to show how an idea can snowball and turn into something quite different from what was originally intended. This clock would never have existed without the original DIY idea. What is so great about the end result is that the circular shape is exactly the same size as a standard drill size, so the clock can be integrated anywhere and the DIY element is still maintained to some extent. To show what’s possible with the tube clocks we have made the tube wood, these are beams of black ash, natural hevea and brown oak that make great table clocks when combined with the tube clock. If you put the tube audio on top of it, it becomes an even more beautiful and functional setting.
