These small wormy chestnut wood buttons were created from special wood. After an article about Hendywood ran in the local paper a very nice gentleman contacted me. Back in the 1970’s he moved from North Carolina to Florida and brought some wormy chestnut wood with him. Prior to that the wood had been stored at his cabin in the North Carolina mountains. He realized he was never going to do anything with the wood and offered it to me. During the first half of the 20th century, the chestnut trees in the Appalachian Mountains were nearly brought to extinction by disease and logging. The name “wormy” came about due to insect infestation of the wood.

This wood is beautiful and hard to come by. I hand cut and shaped each button, sanded the wood, and drilled two holes in each.These babies are pretty to look at and silky smooth to touch. They have a beautiful color and grain along with their interesting history. I coated each button with Carnuba wax and buffed it to a shiny luster.

These buttons are a tad less than 3/4 inch (1.9cm) square and approx. 1/8 inch (.317cm) thick. They come with the sweet muslin bag seen in the picture!

Add rustic charm and history to your project.
