Time for a little update from the wood shop block! Jody has been spending a lot of time designing and making quite the collection of floating shelves, including a few sets of beautiful cherry live edge shelves. The wood comes from locally sourced turning blank lumber, which he then hand cut, tapered, and sanded to a super silky texture, and finally coated with a clear tung oil for a soft finish. These were handled with extra care due to the delicate nature of the live edge, which were not simulated – they are the real deal. We’ve just listed this trio on our Etsy shop, and we have one more set of the live edge floating shelves coming to the shop soon (along with about 15 more floating shelf varieties!). The live edge ones are particularly limited just due to the nature of the wood – you can only get so many of these out of one slab of lumber. Each shelf is about five by five inches, fitting a small succulent plant, candle, souvenirs, knick knacks, bud vases, you name it!
To learn more about this set of shelves, you can check out our Etsy listing here! We’ll be experimenting more with stains and color soon, too, but if you’re interested in a custom order, shoot us an email at shop @ faireandgoodwin.com!
Minimalism has been consuming our minds. As we head into spring, albeit weeks early, we can’t help but feel the same way about shedding our winter layers as we dream about lightening up our living spaces. Trying to live happily with less stuff, but among things that bring us most joy. Appreciating timeless over trendy, delicate over intricate, and quality over quantity. These are some of the guiding principles we are putting into our wood work. This week, we’re excited to share these lovely cherry wood floating shelves we’ve designed and made in our wood shop. The wood comes from locally sourced turning blank lumber, which we then hand cut, tapered, and sanded to a super silky texture, and finally coated with a clear tung oil for a soft finish.
We are super excited to offer a limited number of our Faire & Goodwin Collection handmade belts via our new Etsy store! These wooden belts are crafted from red oak, locally sourced from trees right here in Ohio. They are hand-sanded, steamed, and then shaped on a mold for two days each before hand stained and adorned with an adjustable gold-plated chain featuring lobster claw hooks and clasps. We have five up for grabs at the moment in brown or white.
These awesome and completely one-of-a-kind belts will be available soon. Made from 100% locally-sourced red oak and adorned with an adjustable gold-plated chain, these belts are milky smooth, incredibly comfortable, and slimming to boot!
