John & Jane Schlabaugh

We have been handcrafted clocks and other creative wood products since 1980. Much of our woodworking knowledge has been passed down from John's father (Kara's grandfather), also a woodworker in our studio. The studio is located in Kalona, IA, the heart of Amish country. Our styles range from Arts & Crafts/Mission, Greene & Greene to contemporary designs.

All of the wooden parts our our work are designed and created by Schlabaugh & Sons Woodworking in Kalona, IA. We have been in business for over 35 years and sell our work to many of the major galleries in the country.  

All parts are crafted from native and imported hardwoods. Clock movements come with a 2 year guarantee. 

Kara Lynn Design: All products are cut and sanded into unique shapes. The three patterns were design and then carved out of linoleum. The lin-cut patterns are then inked and hand-pressed onto the wood. They are sealed with acrylic lacquer for a smooth long-lasting finish.

The only parts of our work that are not completed by us are the clock movements and tile. We use both US made movements and movements from other countries. Having worked in the clock business for 35 years, we have personally visited our vendors at a clock trade show in Basil, Switzerland to assure that each vendor meets our expectations for quality and reliability.
