More good stuff from trees

fullsizeoutput_439Hey Folks,

Any woodworker has to love trees.  Trees not only create the basic material for our work, they also provide the mystery of what’s hidden inside them.  Finding the treasure within is part of the joy that comes from woodwork.  But trees also improve the environment in which we live.  They cool the earth, they generate oxygen, and they feed, house and nurture life in and around themselves for decades, even centuries.  So when I met a budding (sorry) young arborist with the goal of increasing folks’ appreciation for trees, I started looking for a way to help out.

Logan Fields runs  Heartwood Nursery, a tree nursery in Port Townsend that specializes in nut and fruit trees.  To promote her business, Logan makes necklaces from the shells of heart nuts.  The heart nut is similar to a walnut but has an iconic shape that lends itself to some creative uses.

I have five of Logan’s necklaces available for sale at the shop, or you can buy them directly from the artist herself, via her website.

Cheers,
Tom
