OldWaysWoodWork aims to authentically recreate items handcrafted by America’s earliest settlers, pioneers and farmers. Utilitarian value was the chief concern of the makers and Primitive and Americana objects are as unique and intriguing as the artists themselves. This item has been hand split, carved or handcrafted in the same traditional way as in days gone by. Only the most appropriate hardwoods are used. As in those earlier days, each work takes on a unique character as Artist\/Craftsman influences the direction, form, and finally the intended use of each work. The designs are perceived by the maker to be functional and unique as well as truly representative of American Country Primitives at its finest.
