Oiling Boards

There is a lot of work preparing these wooden boards, then about 3 hours under the laser, but you still don’t really know what you’ve got until the oil goes on. Perry Bond Just watch this Golden retriever board Each board is a one-off, and they sell quite quickly, so we’re keeping a record of our boards over at Pinterest If there’s an image you would like to see on a board, just leave a…

Later, I made gunpowder to defend or overthrow our people.  How strange, then, that I am best and far most widely known for defending not your heads from pain, or your bellies…

In our quest for unusual and original wooden products, we think we’ve hit gold with this one… This Walnut book-light is not what is seems: Open the book to turn it on, leave ajar for a directional light, or open to 360° and magnets snap it into place for a full glow. Made from walnut plywood with a living wooden hinged spine. Recharged via a usb cable Walnut with a warm white lightor maple with…
