We just started adding some new products, which will be available at our Wooster show the end of May, as well as Ren Faire this summer. In our never-ending quest to use up every tiny bit of wood scraps, we started making beautiful buttons, and carding them nicely enough that you can even use them as gifts!
As costumers know, toggles have gotten nearly impossible to find except in fake plastic "horn" shapes, often with fake leather attachments. Ours are real wood or antler, and real leather attachments.
(pic coming soon!)
We'd like to take a minute to remind folks that a button or toggle doesn't have to have just the purpose of closing clothing. We're also going to use ours to embellish hats, close lids of boxes, and fasten shut felted bags.

We recently picked up some dandy chair legs from an auction of new-old stock, and our Table Saw dude sliced the fluted ones for us--pics soon!
