What is wood - from the tree seed to the product
Trees can live up to several thousand years. The oldest tree, a spruce called Old Tjikko , is in Sweden and is over 10,000 years old, according to researchers. In our native forests, however, trees rarely get that old, since most trees are already ready for harvest between 60 and 200 years. It therefore stands to reason that the tree deserves to be processed into a beautiful and timeless product. A cutting board, which should not be missing in any kitchen, is a worthy product. With careful care of our products, they can bring joy for generations.

Where do we get our wood from - we trust local partners
We source our solid wood directly from local suppliers. This simplifies the control of our wood products so that we can meet our quality standards. Our specialty lies in the processing of hardwoods such as maple, beech, oak and walnut to create our works of art. Solid wood is mostly sourced directly from sawmills, foresters or even forest owners to create our unique pieces. Whenever possible, we purchase residual wood/cuttings to improve our ecological footprint.

Handwork is our focus
The art of designing a product out of wood requires experience, skill and patience. The latest technical aids support us in product development, but the focus is on manual work. The careful handling of our domestic and sustainable wood is important to us. We produce everything ourselves: cutting boards, serving trays, wall clocks, vases, wooden lamps, tables, candle holders, wooden shelves and many other products.
