Process

Made from solid tulip poplar wood, with an under milking paint and tung oil – natural finishes that provide a protective but breathable layer. The timber is chosen for its ability to carve well, while the finishes have been selected for their unique ability to accentuate the textures left by the tools. All materials are completely natural and produce a durable finish.
