It all started when...
The branches headed straight through the wood chipper. Carbon metal blades swirling at 2,400 rotations per minute turned the large branch into small pieces in a matter of seconds. Wood chippers are unforgiving machines and care little about what goes through.
Day after day, I realized there was almost an endless supply of material coming from the streets and yards of Portland, Oregon.
Now, each branch has a second life and can be made into anything we think of - the possibilities are endless. We currently make utensils like spatulas and spoons but hope to expand into wooden cups, bowls, cutting boards and beyond.
All our wood is locally sourced from arborists in the Portland Metro Area. Wood comes from Portland and its neighboring towns of Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin, Hillsboro, Newberg, Sherwood, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Happy Valley, Clackamas, Gresham, Troutdale and Vancouver, Camas and Washougal in Washington.
For this reason, it's possible to trace many of the spatulas back to the neighborhood trees they grew in.
Thanks for visiting and we hope to hear from you!
