In a world where human-made, synthetic materials are on the rise, we can’t help but find our appreciation for natural elements growing by the minute. The more we see polyesters and plastics, the more we want linens and woods.
That’s why we’re especially drawn to the art of woodworking. It’s a medium that celebrates one of Earth’s most beautiful natural resources by turning it into something else. It’s not a new, trendy practice but an old, time-honored one that never seems to go out of style.
And these 10 woodworkers do it best. From furniture makers to carvers of wooden spoons, bowls, and brushes, this group of artisans is turning out impressive, sought-after pieces that add an element of the lasting and handmade to the home.
