Why do you work in wood?
Wood is natural, beautiful and durable. It is also challenging as it is a living medium as it is constantly in a state of movement. Because no two grain patterns are the same it is impossible to create two identical pieces, this ensures that every object is a true original. not to mention the fact that we love it.
How to you stain the wood to make it that color?
None of the woods are stained. All the wood used is its natural color, the only finishing treatment used is oil, polyurethane and wax.
What wood species do you use?
Some of the woods used are Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Purple Heart, Yellow Heart, Paduak, Oak, and Ash. Only sustainable wood species that are not threatened are used, and all are purchased from reputable environmentally sound vendors. Much of the wood comes from domestic sources where possible.
