About

The need for creative expression

Why did I open an Etsy store? Simple question with a not so simple answer and in my case it probably dates back to early childhood and my character traits. Both my grandfather and my father were craftsmen which led to me being exposed to tools and impresses by craftsmanship of the people around me from the earliest age. That surrounding definitely triggered and enhanced my need to create. My older sister who is a sculptor and is creating pure art has had, through her work and education, a big influence on my sense of aesthetics. Creativity is, as I see it, God’s gift that pushes a man to interact with the world around him, to constantly explore and question everything around him in an endless search for better solutions. In my case that creativity was expressed in many forms but eventually it narrowed down to woodworking. By education I am a traffic engineer and my line of work doesn’t involve manual labor, which led to an even bigger need for me to express my creativity. Gradually, with help and support from my family I was able to acquire all the necessary tools and to adapt my garage into a workshop. How I had all that I needed to make my dream come true and to be able to dedicate most of my free time to woodworking.
Wood as a material is very primeval, alive and a great source of inspiration both when it’s used by itself and when it’s combined with a different material. Sound of a hand tool peeling the layers of the wood and exposing to the craftsmen never before seen structures and shapes represents immeasurable pleasure. I am first and foremost drawn to create useable wooden items because that gives the owner of the piece a chance to be in direct contact with the material, to enjoy the wood’s unique warmth and structure. That is why I try to make sure that all the pieces I produce are not coated using synthetic coatings, but rather using oil and wax, emphasizing wood natural structure and fineness. Despite modern materials being more and more present in our everyday life, wood thanks to its warmth and positive effect on man, still holds a special place in our lives and I hope it will stay that way.
So far I made a variety of items: Tables, book shelves, club tables, wine tables, dressers, wine shelves, decorative boxes, archery bows etc. Items that I make are either one of a kind or made in a small series.
In Etsy community I found a way to put my aesthetic expression to a test by placing my creations in a store for a whole world to see. Some of my items are not presented in the store mainly because the large dimensions of the items would make it nearly impossible for them to be shipped using postal services. More than the money earned, I am happy with the idea that I have managed to design and create something that is appealing to somebody thousands of kilometers away, living in a completely different surroundings that me and that this item can enrich their living space. That is the joy of creating, joy that produces new creative energy, and here lies a part of the answer to the question on the top.

Additional policies and FAQs
LIVING WITH HANDMADE SOLID WOOD IS A SPECIAL KIND OF LIVING. WE STAND BEHIND OUR FURNITURE AND THE WORKMANSHIP INVOLVED. WE GUARANTEE OUR PRODUCTS IN TERM OF CRAFTSMANSHIP RELATED PROBLEMS, AND WE WILL REPAIR OR REPLACE ANY DAMAGED ITEMS. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT INCLUDE CRACKING/SPLITTING, WARPING, CUPPING, BOWING OR WOOD MOVEMENT AND /OR ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES. WE DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO SELECT THE BEST WOOD AVAILABLE AND TRY TO CUT OUT DEFECTS OR LESSER QUALITY BOARDS. HOWEVER, WOOD SOMETIMES HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN AND MOVES NATURALLY, ISSUES THAT OCCUR DUE TO WOOD MOVEMENT ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL.
ALL OUR PIECES ARE CONSTRUCTED OF 100% ORGANIC WOOD. SOLID WOOD ADJUSTS IN DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE YEAR TO THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF THE AIR. IN A SENSE THE WOOD BREATHES JUST LIKE US. WOOD WILL ALSO ADJUST TO THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF YOUR HOME AND ITS SURROUNDINGS.
YOU MAY NOTICE YOUR FURNITURE PIECE MOVE EVER SO SLIGHTLY OR EVEN DEVELOP SMALL CRACKS OR DIPS. THIS IS NORMAL. ORGANIC WOOD FURNITURE WILL HAVE MOVEMENT DURING ITS LIFE AND THIS IS JUST THE NATURE OF NATURAL WOOD FURNITURE. A DRY HOME MAY CAUSE THE WOOD TO MOVE OR CRACK MORE THAN A HOME WITH PROPER HUMIDITY. BE SURE YOUR HOME HAS PROPER HUMIDITY LEVELS THROUGH OUT THE YEAR. YOU CAN PURCHASE A HUMIDITY METER FROM MOST HARDWARE STORES AND WE STRONGLY URGE YOU TO CHECK THAT OUT BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF YOUR FURNITURE PIECE. KEEP IN MIND THAT WOOD DOES HAVE A LIFE OF ITS OWN AND EVEN WITH PROPER MEASURES TAKEN IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND BY OUR TEAM IN THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS, YOU MAY NOTICE SOME MOVEMENT.
FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
IF YOU NOTICE SURFACE CRACKS....THIS IS NORMAL. IF YOU NOTICE SOME CRACKING ON THE ENDS THIS IS ALSO NORMAL ACTIVITY FOR SOLID ORGANIC FURNITURE.
TO AVOID EXCESSIVE WARPING OR CRACKING A COOL ENVIRONMENT (72F /22 C DEGREES ) WITH A RELATIVE HUMIDITY OF ABOUT 45-55% AND A LITTLE BIT OF AIR FLOW IS SAID TO BE IDEAL FOR WOOD OBJECTS IN GENERAL. CHANGE THERMOSTAT SETTINGS GRADUALLY AS SEASONS CHANGE. A SUDDEN CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE OR HUMIDITY IS THE WORST THING POSSIBLE AS MOISTURE WILL BE SUCKED OUT OF OR PUSHED INTO THE MATERIAL FAR TOO QUICKLY CAUSING TENSION INSIDE IT. EXCESS HEAT AND DRYNESS CAN EVEN CAUSE CRACKING AND SPLITTING. AVOID EXTREMELY HOT PLATES AND EXCESSIVE WATER ALLOWED TO STAND FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. ALSO AVOID VINYL TABLE CLOTHS AND GLASS TOPS AS THEY CAN PREVENT AIR CIRCULATION AND MAY CAUSE WARPING. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT PLACING YOUR PIECE IN FRONT OF A WINDOW IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT CAN DRY OUT YOUR PIECE AND CAUSE CRACKING AND SPLITS!
THE MAIN CAUSES OF DAMAGE TO WOODEN FURNITURE ARE CARELESS HANDLING AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN THE SURROUNDINGS OF YOUR WOOD PIECE. ONCE AGAIN PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT MOVEMENT JUST AS SMALL CRACKS IN THE SURFACE OF YOUR LIVE EDGE FURNITURE PIECE IS NORMAL AND PART OF THE NATURE OF THE WOOD. YOU MAY NOTICE LIFTING ON THE EPOXY OR RESIN FILLS. THIS IS FROM THE NATURAL MOVEMENT OF THE WOOD ALSO.
LIGHT IS A NATURAL ENEMY OF ALL ORGANIC MATERIALS; IT IS ESPECIALLY HARMFUL FOR WOOD BECAUSE THE DAMAGE IS CUMULATIVE (MEANING IT GETS WORSE OVER TIME) AND IRREVERSIBLE. LIGHT CAN TURN LIGHT WOODS DARK, AND BLEACH OUT DARK WOODS. IT CAN ALSO AFFECT THE FINISH, STAIN, OR PAINT ON THE SURFACE—LEAVING IT DISCOLORED, OPAQUE, CRACKED, OR BRITTLE. LEAVING YOU WOOD PIECE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT IE....HUGE WINDOWS WITH LOT OF SUNLIGHT ALL DAY LONG WILL NOT BE GOOD FOR YOUR PIECE, IT MAY WARP AND CRACK! WE SUGGEST BLINDS OR A SHEET COVERING IF LEAVING EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT ON A REGULAR BASIS. ALSO, IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO PLACE HOT MUGS OR PLATES DIRECTLY ON THE WOOD SURFACE AS IT MAY MARK THE FINISH. WE ALSO WOULD ADVISE THAT YOU AVOID PLACING YOUR WOOD PIECE ON FLOORING THAT HAS IN FLOOR HEATING. ESPECIALLY FOR PIECES WITH WOODEN LEGS. THE CONSTANT HEAT ON THE WOOD ABSORBS ANY OF THE MOISTURE LEFT IN THE WOOD AND WILL FURTHER PROMOTE SPLITTING AND CRACKING. WOODENWORLDDENIC DOES NOT WARRANT ANY FURNITURE PIECES PURCHASED AND PLACED ON IN-FLOOR HEATING.
WOOD IS COMPOSED OF CELLULOSE (A MOLECULE WITH AN AFFINITY FOR WATER) AND IT IS POROUS; AS A RESULT IT IS VULNERABLE TO HUMIDITY. WHEN MOISTURE IN THE AIR INCREASES (I.E. HUMIDITY RISES), WOOD ABSORBS WATER AND SWELLS A LITTLE; WHEN THE AIR DRIES OUT (I.E. HUMIDITY DECREASES), WOOD GIVES OFF MOISTURE AND SHRINKS. THESE RESPONSES TO CHANGES IN HUMIDITY WEAKEN GLUE JOINS, CAN CAUSE WOOD TO SPLIT OR CRACK, AND MAY DAMAGE ITS FINISH.
WE ADVISE THAT YOU CHECK THE HUMIDITY OF YOUR HOME TO ASSURE THAT YOUR PIECE IS ALWAYS IN THE BEST POSSIBLE ENVIRONMENT.
