HEY -

MY NAME IS MATT

I LIKE TO HIKE & CAMP & MAKE STUFF

I WORK WORK MOSTLY WITH NATURAL MATERIALS AND SIMPLE SUSTAINABLE METHODS TO MAKE MY HAND CRAFT.

WOOD CAME FIRST - PROBABLY ALL THE WAY BACK TO WHITTLING DOWN HOT DOG STICKS AROUND THE CAMP FIRE AS A KID.

OVER THE YEARS I’VE DIALED IN ON SPOON CARVING - A SUSTAINABLE GREENWOOD CRAFT TRADITION WITH DEEP ROOTS IN WELSH & SWEDISH CULTURE.

THEN LEATHER - THAT ALL STARTED TEN OR SO YEARS AGO WHEN I LOST MY BELT. I HAD THIS GREAT VINTAGE LEATHER WORK BELT. IT WAS THE BEST BELT I EVER HAD & I COULDN'T FIND A DECENT REPLACEMENT. SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MY OWN. 

I MADE ONE BELT. THEN I MADE MORE. NEXT THING YOU KNOW I’M FILLING ORDERS & MAKING ALL SORTS OF NEAT STUFF. 

SO NOW I MOSTLY MAKE BELTS & CARVE SPOONS. WHEN I'M NOT DOING THAT I TEACH CRAFT WORKSHOPS & CLASSES AND POKE AROUND THE WOODS WITH MY WIFE & DOG. 

THANKS FOR DROPPING BY TO CHECK THINGS OUT -
