Last week’s best sellers are up and showing on our web pages today. Our mini box is always a popular item especially with soon-to-be-married couples who use the box for holding their rings. It makes you feel good that you are helping someone make their special day that little bit extra special. That’s why we take great care when producing each and every item.
We’ve had a great summer here in the UK and Eeva and I have enjoyed our holiday in Finland again this year though, if the truth be told, the weather in Finland in July was not that great! Finland is famed for it’s wood – particularly pine – and it seems as though every inch of available space is used for growing pine trees. So it’s no surprise that there are a lot of woodworkers in Finland producing a host of quality goods. We have a bread cutting board made from pine which still releases the heady aroma of pine whenever we use it. Reindeer antlers are also in good supply in Finland and so it is not unusual to see the merging of wood and antler to very good effect. Keep an eye on our website as we will shortly be adding new products, one of which utilises antler.
You probably all know what I’m talking about. It was some years ago when I had my first real experience of wood warping as it came off my table saw. I was making a grandmother clock out of walnut and had some beautiful pieces of wood to use. So it was with some surprise and disappointment that when cutting strips with a small cross-section for the door frame from the main body of wood they came off with a substantial bend in them. There wasn’t much I could do with them however other than select another piece of wood and hope for the best!
Have a good week.
