These clocks by Mark Dabelstein remind you that it’s always a good time for a good beer. Using salvaged materials and expert woodworking skills, he creates clocks that replace numbers with bottle caps from your favorite beverages. Choose from micro-brews, imports, domestic, soda pop, grab-bag or regional favorites from Vermont, Colorado or California. All clocks are made with a “AA” battery quartz clock movement and can be either wall hung or stand alone on a desk or table.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
