Announcement    Welcome to Sacred Resource, where you will find a wide variety of custom woodwork by Chris Bradley. Each piece is hand crafted in my Steamboat Springs, CO studio using traditional techniques and joinery.
My designs always focus on functionality and are made for a lifetime of use. I use reclaimed and locally harvested wood. Most of my items are made from beetle kill pine ( pine trees killed by the mountain pine beetle). Not only is this an ecological use of material, but the wood has a very unique appearance.
You can find additional items and learn more about Sacred Resource at www.sacred-resource.com.
Visit my other Etsy Shop: ElkRiverKnives for a wide selection of hunting, fishing and kitchen knives

About

Contemplative woodcraft from Colorado

Since its inception in 2008, Sacred Resource has striven to create highly functional woodcraft and cabinetry. All of my pieces are designed to elevate ordinary, everyday objects to art. I take immense pleasure in turning a bowl that will not only be used every day, but also become a conversation piece with its own story to tell.


My work is often a contemplative practice. Contemplative woodworking is creating without thought. Often the unique charateristics of a single piece of wood will determine the final design. Other times, it may take weeks for a design to "create itself".


I have always been ecologically minded. This is reflected in many of the products I produce, the materials I use and the practices I maintain. Because of its tragic abundance and its unique historical record, I work almost exclusively in lodgepole and ponderosa pine killed by the mountain pine beetle. This naturally "blue stained" wood is not only beautiful, but has a great story to tell. Its an honor to create things of beauty and usefulness with a material that most consider firewood at best.

Thank you for visiting Sacred Resource! As professional woodworker, I take great care to ensure each item I hand craft is functional, beautiful and made to last. I love a challenge and gladly accept custom orders.
As an ecologically minded company, I primarily use local materials and strive for zero waste. Sawdust from my shop is used for animal bedding and compost, while scrap wood is used to help heat my home during the long Rocky Mountain winters.
