In his trade as a furniture maker, Matt would often accumulate a lot of wood odds, ends and scraps in the production process. Rather than discarding the pieces, or else—using them for kindling—he chose to turn the perfectly good lumber into smaller, functional items for the kitchen and home. Using the same traditional woodworking techniques as in his furniture, Matt builds cocktail muddlers, knife racks, salt cellars and more from the scraps, not skimping on craftsmanship for the smaller goods. In addition to the quality of the work itself, he’s highly influenced by beauty and aesthetics, and so he makes sure that every piece is not only well made but also thoughtfully designed.
