what it’s all about: "the excitement of the wood arriving, watching the patina appear as the planks are processed. the scent of the natural wood oils in the dust. a few sneezes in between. seeing the designs form as the wood gets a new life. giving the designs a name. the smell of the wood as the branding iron burns the logo. the relationship and respect for each other as wood lovers in production. working alongside a team of creative people. establishing meaningful relationships with our clients. working in such a beautiful part of the world.
the sheer joy of making beautiful things."
