What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Wooden Quilts?!?



I am still crazed at work, so I must be brief, but I think you’re going to love these pieces!

The (unnamed) artist behind Made By Woodhand wanders around New York City, salvaging wood. She then turns that forgotten, unwanted scrap into mind-bogglingly complex, perfect pieces of furniture. Her woods are matched for type and grain, then cut with a precision I can  only dream of. (When I am building something with wood, it is always measured perfectly, then cut poorly. I suck at sawing.) The salvaged wood pieces are then merged to create quilt-like patterned tables, headboards, clocks, cutting boards, and mirrors.

The Artist’s Instagram is full of lovely making-of photos, and her website is a ton of fun, too. Enjoy! I promise I’ll make a little more sense tomorrow. Maybe.

How much you want to bet she got that jar of doll heads on Etsy?

  3. I love these! Different shades of wood are the primary “theme” in my living room. I would fill my house with these if I could. And you made perfect sense. You even slipped and Esty joke in there.

  4. The marquetry is amazing. The precision, skill, the math involved impresses me. I associate marquetry with being quite old-fashioned but these pieces strike me as being pretty modern. I saw that jar of heads and just knew you were going to have to mention Etsy.

  6. I’ll bet she has a very good high tech saw. You can’t do this with a hand saw.
    Oh man. We’ve been headboardless for years. I’ve been waiting for a special headboard. You may have helped me find it.

  10. Could be much more professional with a headless pin nailer. Brad holes scream amateur.
