Bois8BitWood is taking a short break

Note from shop owner I will out of town from Sat. July 16, 2016 to Sun. July 31, 2016. Any orders placed during this time will be processed in early August.
Also please note that I will no longer be making the 8-Bit Cutting Boards as of Sept. 2016. At present I still have: 1 Goomba, 2 Mario, and several of the PacMan Ghost, Cherry, Space Invaders, and Creeper models. I will also have 5 of the Power-Up Mushroom (not yet listed) which will be available in early-mid Aug.
There will be one more production run (10 pcs) of the Question Block model and probably one more of the (currently sold out) link cutting board (I may do a different position for this one).

About

Wood..... that is all.

I really love woodworking and video games... lately I don't have time for both of those things, so I combined them.

These cutting boards are all inspired by the classic 8-Bit video games of my youth.
I don't use any stains or dyes to make up the images in my boards. The colours I use are all the natural colours of different domestic hardwoods available in Quebec.

The offcuts of the cutting board process I use to make the wood belt buckles and hair barrettes which are woodburned by hand with similar Geek-inspired imagery that is close to my heart and finished with a Zero VOC, penetrating wax, durable enough to be used as a flooring finish but safe for use even on children's toys.

My background is in Architecture and Interior Design. I was good at my job, but never really quite happy or satisfied. Then one day I dropped my pencil and automatically pushed Ctrl-Z on my keyboard.... it occurred to me at that moment that perhaps I was spending too much time behind a computer.
After a while, realizing that I loved making things with my own two hands, I went back to school to study the art of building fine furniture. I worked for a while doing custom pieces but eventually transitioned to smaller, more intimate objects.

In addition to woodworking, I also enjoy Chainsaw Carving and good bourbon.... though not at the same time...
