Working on a prototype for the #daddydaughterproject . Still refining the shape and footprint. Rebekah wants a little side table for her reading chair. She chose a dark base and a light top. I have some oak and ash in the wood rack so that will be perfect. We are thinking of doing an India ink base and leaving the top natural. The legs will be tapered and wider. The top will be 4/4 thick. Excited about this one.
How did we get started do you ask❓
Several years ago, health challenges including allergies and migraines prompted Lynn to seek out safer, less toxic alternatives to commercial body care and cleaning supplies. It wasn’t always easy to find pure, natural alternatives, but her reverence for folk herbalism and love of plants were key to finding solutions.
Long story short, she adopted the motto, “If you want to get something done well, do it yourself.” Making laundry soap and soap bars for herself and her family was the goal initially, but eventually friends and other family members started asking for some, and they told a few friends and so on … You know how it goes! In 2007, after over a year of planning and much experimentation to get things “just right”, Lynn took the plunge and created Earth Elementals Soap.
Went on a wild mango chase today (last pic) for a motherlode in West Palm Beach — three large trees cut down. Sadly, it was spoken for, but on the way home I dropped by the ever-awesome @zimmermantreeservice in Boynton Beach, where Mike had set aside some Cuban mahogany. Got some nice crotch cookies (😆) and a piece for a large hollowform. Thinking @stevenscreativewoodart might want that one. 👍
Some new solid brass hardware options available. Everything from split key rings, trigger snaps, Conway buckles, belt buckles and more. We have volume discounts to mix and match sizes to get the best price. We have more Japanese brass items coming in the next day or two. It might get a bit heavy on new product launches the next few weeks!
