About

Out of Chaos Woods comes curiosities, toys and other wooden crafts

One-of-a-kind wooden sculpture, custom toys, turned bowls, boxes, small furniture and lamps made by husband and wife team, Terry Snow and Sarah Snow.

We live in Austin Texas surrounded by the "Keep Austin Weird" philosophy of musicians, artists and weirdos. We care about the environment we live in and want to make a positive contribution. Working with our hands and our imaginations we have a lot of fun.

Our process

We come up with an idea and sometimes brainstorm about it. Then one of us will draw a super rudimentary sketch of the idea. After that we may just go for it, or we'll make a prototype out of scraps in the shop. Frequently, we make jigs and stencils to make production faster but each piece has details making it unique.

About the Materials We Use

We care about the environment and want to make a positive contribution. We look for material we can recycle and purchase recycled whenever possible. We’re even learning to dry and season our own wood from fallen trees. The majority of the wood we buy is U.S.A. poplar. Because poplar is so easy and quick to grow, it’s said to be unrivaled in its environmental & forest sustainability. We may use general woodworking and durable polyurethane finishes on our lamps and other furniture but our toys are colored with acrylic paint, certified by ACMI to be non-toxic, food coloring or homemade fruit and vegetable dyes.

About Age Appropriateness

Please supervise your children during playtime with all toys.
Not all children develop at the same rate. You know your child best so use your good judgement when deciding what toys she or he is mature enough to play with safely.

These recommendations are based on online research and competitive analysis.

Pull toys with teethers and push toys can be introduced as soon as baby's old enough to hold up his or her own head but are ideal for kiddos starting to walk to adult. The teethers we make are un-treated and double sanded. They're also designed to be too big to choke on and the pull toy ropes are short to avoid tangling.

Rubber band gun toys and other toys that propel objects are probably best for those 6 years and up. Some of our tank robots come without triggers and are great for kids as young as 4 years old.

Small cork cars are safe except if the wheels break loose. Stay particularly cautious with children 3 years and under.

Our small tops are not recommended for those children under 4 years old or who are still putting things they shouldn't in their mouths.

We hope this helps your family stay safe and have fun!
