Maple with Black Walnut Inlay

We're thrilled to welcome Orgeon-based (and California bred) John Henry Souza of eponymous John Henry Woodworking to the family!

His initial collection for Akogare features a series of carving and serving trays, sanded to a buttery smoothness. Shown left, this exquisite slab of live edge maple, joined with black walnut, is a hefty two inches thick.

John Henry's attention to craft is evident in this dramatic statement piece. In his words, "I believe that if more of us understand craft, if more of us made things with our own hands, and we learned the stories behind who someone is, what they make, and why, we would have more influence over what people want to buy and how they want to buy. People want to belong somewhere and feel useful."
