A unique pair of Solid Hardwood cufflinks, each handmade from an offcut from one of my larger pieces.
Each set is unique, and takes advantage of the beautiful grain of the wood. The two pairs listed here are:
– Oak: English Oak with Blue Resin. Size approx 20 x 17x 9mm. Made from an offcut of a resin table centrepiece with resin filling the feature knot.
– Ash: English Ash with Amber Resin. Size approx 20 x 17 x 8mm. Made from an offcut of a live edge ash serving board, which itself was reclaimed from a set of shelves.
Whenever possible in Lifetimber products I use second life timber that has had a previous life as something else, is reclaimed or salvaged or often was waste or offcuts from another project or woodworker. Most of the wood that I use is reclaimed or offcut hardwoods that are naturally slow growing. This timber is always beautiful and often has character that means it was hard for others to use. I always work with the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting, celebrating and enhancing the natural flaws, knots and patina.
The core philosophy of Lifetimber’s process is to minimise waste: I try to make use of every ounce of wood that comes into my workshop, even the sawdust! By considering a Lifetimber product, you will be helping rescue gorgeous wood from an ignominious end.
Obviously, wood is a natural product and Lifetimber celebrates that: if you are looking for conformity, repeatability and laser cut precision then you are probably looking at the wrong product…. but you have read this far! I therefore encourage you to consider a unique Lifetimber product for all the beauty and joy that it will bring.
If you like what you see and have read, but are after a bespoke commission or customised product, then please get in contact with your requirements and I will see what I can do!
