Announcement   Objects can inspire us simply by the way they exist. When an object is honest about what it is made of it becomes far more than a speaker, a table, an object.

We see imperfections in the wood grain that was formed through decades of harsh conditions and we see how it can be formed into things we can use day in and day out. Humbly and gracefully it serves a useful and noble purpose long after its first life was over. That inspires me to focus on the things that I can do, instead of focusing on my imperfections and the things I cannot.

If a piece of wood from an old tree can honor itself and inspire me, I want to share that with others. Every piece of furniture I make is built to be used and appreciated for years. The materials bring the strength and beauty, I find joy in bringing them together with the best craftsmanship I am able.

About

Real wood. Real Life. Real Soul.

Located in beautiful Midland, Michigan, KnotChiseled is comitted to using local, end of life hardwood trees to build high quality modern woodware for life. We’re lucky enough to be located in an area that grows some highly figured hardwoods with our rich soil and diverse seasonal changes.

Why we built KnotChiseled:
Some people get excited when they go to a ball game, shop for shoes or go skydiving. I get excited when I make things. One of my favorite times is when I’m cutting into a massive log and I get the first look at what’s inside. It’s like a treasure hunt. Sawdust is flying in the breeze and the smell of fresh cut wood fills the air as I pull the first slab off the log and see the beautiful character inside. When it’s selected for a project the intricate grain patterns, figure and color begin to show through as the wood is planed and finished.
I hate buying something only to have it break soon after and need to buy it again. KnotChiseled items begin as an ideal to eschew the disposable, soul-less objects we consume in favor of inspiring, durable goods made with the high quality materials, meticulous craftsmanship and the natural beauty of real wood and elegantly simple forms.

Objects can inspire us simply by the way they exist. When an object is honest about what it is made of it becomes far more than a table, a speaker, a tray, an object. We see imperfections in the wood that was formed through decades of harsh conditions and we see how it can be formed into things we can use day in and day out. Humbly and gracefully it serves a useful and noble purpose long after its first life was over. Bringing these objects into my daily life helps inspires me to focus on the things that I can do, instead of focusing on my imperfections and the things I cannot.
If a piece of wood from an old tree can honor itself and inspire me, I want to share that with others. The materials bring the strength and beauty, I find joy in bringing them together with the best craftsmanship I am able.

At KnotChiseled we make all of our products in-house including many of the raw materials. We are committed to providing only the highest quality products to last a lifetime and inspire those who use them. Most of our wood comes from end-of-life trees that were cut for other reasons and the logs that would otherwise rot on the ground or be burnt in fireplaces are preserved for functional use in our lives.
We believe that the most environmentally friendly products are the ones that continue to be used for generations instead of ending up in landfills.
