Wood is all around us, but we rarely stop to think about the story behind it. From the floorboards beneath our feet to the tables we eat on, wood plays a significant role in our daily lives. Yet, it’s often overlooked and taken for granted, just like the air we breathe.
But what if we told you that there’s a couple down in the Mornington Peninsula who are doing something special with this ubiquitous material?
Meet Nathan and Sarah, the dynamic duo behind The Wood Project. They take salvaged trees and turn them into stunning pieces of furniture that not only look great but tell a story. These two have a passion for woodworking and sustainability, and it’s evident in every piece they create.
There’s more to furniture making than just hammering some pieces of wood together. Nathan and Sarah explain that it takes time, patience, and a keen eye for detail to create something truly beautiful. And when you’re working with salvaged wood, there’s an added layer of complexity. Every piece is unique, and it takes skill and creativity to bring out the best in each one.
So, the next time you’re sitting at a wooden table or admiring a piece of furniture, take a moment to appreciate the craftsmanship that went into it. And think about the journey that the wood took to get there, from a living tree to a stunning piece of art.
And if you’re lucky enough to come across something created by the Wood Project, you’ll know that you’re not just getting a beautiful piece of furniture but a unique story that’s waiting to be told.
