Modern Weekly

"In comparison, wood is more closely related to our temporal,
elemental understanding than other materials. This quality and
closeness lends itself to an accessible, evocative conversation
helping connect us to larger natural cycles both subtle and obvious.

There are rules and techniques particular to woodwork that not only
re-enforce a natural connection but also help forward craft traditions
and a cultural connection as well. Turning, in this respect, connotates
some sort of cultural recognition of craft to the extent that the works
are valued and that doing the work is deemed valuable. To me it pushes
the question of craft in our society as measured against other cultural media
and influences. The work rides the edge between functional and purely decorative.

I question what "language" or types of communication are universal,
and strive to reveal and connect with this aspect of being in my work".

Social Responsibility

We have been making an effort towards cottage industry with
our small product line, with belief and support of quality, and quality
of life. Part of our business model for our small products is
to be able to participate in charitable donations.

We are choosing to accept only checks or money order as a form of
payment for our cutting board oil. We feel the percentage that we
would pay by accepting credit cards will go further and in a
more positive direction being donated to a charitable cause.
Our goal is to rotate different charitable organizations quarterly
(although we may choose to extend), and keep you informed of what
they are and when we make our donation via our blog.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our cutting board oil and
interest in our business. We love working to fill your orders,
we believe in our product and believe in our decision to donate
proceeds to good causes, and we hope you do too.

The first charity will be:

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
