a brief synopsis of why we do what we do, to create products , that we love,for others...........
The excitement of the the wood arriving.
Watching the patina appearing, as the dull planks get processed.
Seeing the wood get a new life as the designs form. Giving the designs a new name.
The smell of the different natural wood oils as we work with the wood.
The smell when the wood is branded.
The relationships with each other from different backgrounds.
The respect for each other. Working alongside a team of creative people.
The joy on the customers faces. Establishing meaningful relationships.
Working in such a beautiful part of the world & the sheer joy of making beautiful things.
