Awesome buttons, awesome service! Jess had great suggestions to help me find the buttons I needed for little felted totes that I make and sell. And she was so kind to gift me with a dozen bonus buttons in my order! Highly recommend, and will continue to look to The Woodlot as "the place" for unique, hand made buttons.

I love these. They're beautiful and they even threw in a bonus walnut button that I am now looking for *just* the right project to use it on. I'll be purchasing from the Woodlot again.
for the love of trees
darren and i met 20 years ago. two kids, a fabulous dog & a bush lot later - we opened the woodlot. we plan on one day living in the woods - it's a beautiful serene place to be, but until then we are happy to work with the wood that we find when we visit our bush. a lot falls down in 25 acres!
about 2 years ago a good friend of mine ( ani castillo ) asked me to make her a button. she knew we had loads of wood to work with. i went to the garage, gave it a whirl and discovered it was a lot of fun. who knew? so began "the woodlot".
darren is an engineer by day. he's the guy with the chainsaw, the display builder, the shop mechanic & the guy that handles the heavy lifting.... i'm a stay at home mom with a psych degree (which is handier than you'd think). i'm now a woodworker, shop photographer and bookkeeper. loving every minute of it. i had no idea that i'd like working with my hands so much. there is so much joy to be had in the business of creating things : )

we are two people that really love trees. we dream of one day living in the woods. we take fallen trees and reclaimed lumber and make them into everyday things that you can use in your home. this is our passion; giving old wood new life~
