Designer Hardwood is truly a fantastic material. Strong, beautiful, natural and inspiring. It can be used to build homes, create art and warm our bodies. A simple piece of wood has limitless potential.
However, wood sources are unsustainable. The continued deforestation of our planet is contributing to destruction of habit and will eventually result in an inhospitable environment.
Despite this, we understand the allure of wood and its necessity for our lives, so that’s why we have created a company that offers sustainable wood for the general public that can be used like ordinary hardwood planks.
We source all our wood from the leftovers of building projects and other places that would otherwise be turned into wood chips. This wood is perfectly good, so we thought it was a terrible waste!
With a piece of our wood you can get to work creating something useful or beautiful without feeling guilty! In fact you should be giving yourself a pat on the back for avoiding a destructive industry and choosing the environmentally friendly route!
One item made from our wood that was recently shared with us from a designer was this cricket bat. We had never thought to make a cricket bat before! Needless to say we were thoroughly impressed! The bat looked and felt great and we were happy that our wood was used in such an inventive way!
This got us thinking about some other sports-related things amateur wood enthusiasts could make in their spare time.
Sports gear like pool cues, baseball bats and bowling pins could easily and cheaply be made with pieces of Designer Hardwood. Some of these things, especially cricket bats can be quite costly, so making your own will not only give you a special and deep connection with the bat, but it will be easier on the purse strings too!
Try making your own personalised, affordable, and, most importantly, sustainable sports gear with our wood. Take a look at our online store and browse through our selection to find the perfect piece for you today!
