Handmade housewares

This shop started simply by making things that I needed in my small apartment and deciding that others might be in the same situation of trying to find quality housewares and small furniture that wouldn't disrupt the flow of your modern décor, even when it came to dog feeders. Mostly, I sell elevated dog feeders but over the years have designed housewares that are simple, elegant and useful. I think about how things are stored, how they feel in the hands and the convenience of certain shapes.
One thing I like about working small is that it gives me a chance to use up smaller pieces of wood normally considered scrap and thrown away, which I hate to do. I use up as much of a board as I possibly can.
The woods I use are from the urban forest (trees that were taken down due to disease, storm damage, or in the way, and then milled and kiln-dried.) The paint and wood finish are low VOC.
The dog feeders came about after I adopted a retired racing greyhound I named Zumo who needed an elevated feeder. I had a hard time finding nice ones-ones that fit in with contemporary decor and could be considered furniture- without the doggy motifs. He's gobbled through a lot of prototypes and sizes which has helped me get the designs just right.
The housewares came about to serve my own needs. By using them myself I have refined the designs and continue to do so.
I have been designing and woodworking for 15 + years.
On facebook and instagram we are @zumowooddesign.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

Collars: Please provide your dog's neck measurements as stated. Each collar is made to order.
Feeders: I can customize heights and colors for the feeders. Contact me with specifics and the style you like and I will give you a quote and customize the listing for you.

Care instructions

Housewares: wash with damp cloth and dry with a towel. Reapply food safe oil periodically.
Feeders: Wash bowls prior to initial use and wash them frequently for your dog's health. The bowls are dishwasher safe. Feeders can be cleaned with a warm, damp cloth but please do not use an abrasive because it may scratch the finish.
Please do not sit or stand on the feeders or use them for something other than intended.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Collars are shipped via USPS priority mail small box.
Housewares are shipped via USPS priority mail.
Feeders are shipped via USPS priority mail. Through trial and error I have learned how to package the feeders to minimize damage during shipping. In some instances, you may need to cut the interior supports before removing the feeder from the box. I will notify you with instructions if this is the case. Please let me know within 48 hours of receipt of package if it was damaged.
