This is a unique piece of black walnut that has been salvaged as an off-cut from a timber frame knee-brace. It somewhat resembles an old weathered shoe mold. Fun for displaying any of your colorful art utensils, such as colored pencils, crayons, markets, paint brushes, etc. This would also serve well for holding most sized crochet hooks. This piece has been sanded smooth and coated in an all-natural oil and beeswax finish.
Measures 8 1/2" x 3" x 3 1/2", and will hold up to 10 utensils
**The wood used to make this product was harvested either on our family farm or a private woodlot within a 50 mile radius. We primarily harvest trees during the winter, when the ground is frozen and there is lesser chance of damage to the forest floor. This, too, is the time all our little critter friends are hidden away in their winters haven.
Trees are selectively cut using the “worst-first” method, and gingerly drug out with the help of a logging cart and our team of Suffolk draft horses. Logs are then taken to the farm’s sawmill, milled into lumber, and put into a solar kiln to dry.
Once the lumber has reached the proper moisture content it is turned into beautiful, functional products for all to enjoy! We intentionally select out lumber with beautiful character in the grain, so each piece has a unique appeal.
