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...
