Meet my new obsession: Live Wire Farm's timber accessories. The man behind Live Wire Farm, John Robohm, sent a few of his beautiful creations — a couple wall hooks, some spoons, napkin rings, and raw honey — to our office the other day. (His son's apartment will be in our upcoming Small Spaces book!) We were pretty smitten...
Every item is handcrafted from Vermont hardwoods by Mr. Robohm, and he carefully shapes and sands each one to perfection. The hooks are extremely versatile: use them in your bathroom, kitchen, garage, or as brackets for a wall shelf. We love the idea of using it as a toilet roll holder (see picture below). The Vermont timber used for the spoons is dried for 24 months before being shaped, and no two spoons are alike.
The napkin rings are made of hardwood and coated with mineral oil. I can't wait to put them around a pretty cloth napkin. As an added bonus, we got some of Live Wire Farm's raw honey which is gathered from their farm, strained and bottled without altering or heating it.
Prices are very fair for the quality and craftsmanship. Hooks range from $40-50, spoons $10-50, and napkin rings $20. The raw honey is $9 for a 12 ounce jar.
Both of the hooks will soon be hanging in Maxwell's apartment, but the napkin rings and honey will make their way onto my table. And I think I may need to acquire some of the hooks for myself! Check out Live Wire Farm Timber for more information.
Thanks, Mark and John!
