Cabin Life

Recycling wood into timeless pieces of art is perhaps my favorite aspect of creating these pieces.


My brother in law works in construction and had some extra fall off laying around one of his builds. When we came up to visit the site one day, I found myself in scrap- wood heaven! With an idea in mind, I filled my trunk full of fall-off that otherwise would have been on its way to the dump.

I've had an interest in wood- shop ever since I was a kid watching This Old House on PBS with my mom and dad. The idea that these guys could manufacture the skeleton of their very own home was so interesting to me. Of course in my 7 year old's mind, cutting paper into shapes and designs for a class Valentines' Day card was just a couple steps away from cutting wood into a backyard bench. The way I saw it, I was on the right track! Of course, the reality of that thought had aged a bit more maturely as I realized that table saws were much more advanced in fear for me. Either way, the interest for wood- shop craftsmanship had stood strong.

The day I got home from visiting the build was the day I picked up my very first power tool: an orbital sander, (The table saw and belt saw were still a little too intimidating for me, so I decided to start small) and it was love at first sand. For that following week, I spent every day sanding anything I could get my hands on, strictly out of excitement! After a quick trip to Home Depot and a chosen wood stain, the idea of wood affirmations was birthed.

This piece is perfect to fill in those empty corners of a reading study to get away, or to add to the cabin ambience of your newly decorated sitting room.


 

Each piece is sanded down, stained and painted in our little workshop of a home garage in California. All items are repurposed from wood left over to be trashed. This includes anything between palettes found on the road, to wood scraps on their final destination of the dump. I am committed to creating pieces under an environmentally friendly process to help conserve our world to its natural state.


"Recycle. Repurpose. Reuse.”

- The principles of my practice in Woodworking.


I recognize the potential beauty in recycled components, and have made it my passion to work with strictly recycled materials in a quest to transform "trash" into timeless pieces of art.
