I absolutely adore this hair stick. It’s as smooth as silk, easily threads through a bun and is just a gorgeous natural wood color, Gabon Ebony. I had a wonderful communication with Scott, the artist/owner of Adze Woodcraft. He advised me of the densest wood he’s used for a hair stick as my hair is rather thick. I will absolutely buy again.

About

I create one-of-a-kind wood art; specializing in Crochet hooks, wood bowls and other treen

Hi my name is Scott Foster and I am the sole proprietor of Adze Woodcraft and Sundry. My shop is located in Northwest New Jersey, a stone's throw from the Delaware Water Gap and the Hudson Valley, in New York State. During a day trip you can; hit the wineries and cideries, eat farm to table food, hike on the Appalachian trail or Kayak on the Delaware. This is a beautiful part of the United States. My shop is located in a 400 square foot building out behind the house.

The shop is on three bucolic acres in an area, once known for dairy farms. The dairy farms have been replaced with horse training facilities and small scale farming. My family inspires me to create. My support group consists of wife, son, daughter, three dogs, and two cats.
My work is always changing and I struggle with, even small-scale manufacturing. I'm at my best when I free-form and experiment. My interest in crochet hooks, nostepinne and fiber art tools in general was sparked after helping out at a local alpaca farm.
On that day of shearing I saw two baby alpacas come into the world and had the opportunity to hold them and dry them by hand. This sparked an interest in fiber. The connection between the people, animals, land, and the fiber crafts are ancient. As a history buff I find this very inspiring!
My work is inspired by the forms of the past, my work is my work but I can't help but be affected by the awesome connections between ancient civilizations and the now.

Thank you for visiting Adze Woodcraft and Sundry!

Kind Regards, Scott

    I create handcrafted crochet hooks. I'm thankful to have the support of a loving family. My other passions are permaculture and books. We only have one life but there are so many interesting things to do. Get out there and do them :-)

    Second generation shop owner, eight artisans make these yarn bowls with hand tools. I receive these rough cut and then finish them by sanding and applying walnut oil and beeswax

Custom and personalized orders

I do custom orders. If you are having a hard time finding a specific size crochet hook or one that meets your specifications I will work with you to create a design. This goes for bowls, hollow forms or any other wood turned item. Thanks Scott
