By Hand: Whittled Housewares Create Sustainable Creature Comforts with Charm and Beauty
Nowadays wherever one looks for fashionable, modern furnishings, they’re lost amongst pieces made in a factory. You won’t find any crumbly, soulless particleboard in the pieces featured here. Our woodsman friend, Jack, whittles his creations in his slow evening hours with a cup of chamomile tea. “Gosh,” he starts with a reluctant reflection when asked where he draws his inspiration for his craft, “I’m not sure. It’s just something I’ve always enjoyed doing. It helps me relax after a long day of working with my squirrel rescue organization.” He says he really likes knowing the fallen tree from which he sourced material, and that it can live on in another beautiful form. He likes knowing how it came together, from his imagination to his living room. He likes working with his hands. Jack relies largely on his faithful axe and his trusty pocketknife to do most of the work.
