About me

Main technique of making my products is wood turning. In beginning it was trial and error. Eventually I gained experience, I found out how to prepare which wood, how to dry it and on which products use it.
I approach each of my products individually, because every piece of wood is special. Sometimes its better to highlight texture, sometimes the shape and form is more important. Thanks to this approach is each of my product is original.
