There are very few things more delicious than the patina of wood, and lucky for us, awesome wood products, both new and vintage, abound on Etsy. So toss a (wooden) log on the fire (unless it’s a gas fireplace), put your feet up on your (wooden) coffee table, and enjoy!
Charcuterie Cutting Board in Spaltic Hickory by grayworksdesign. $110. Please. Everything in grayworksdesign’s shop basically makes us want to weep. As for this one, how could you cut things on it? Too beautiful. Instead, give me a gorgeous cheese or mini desert spread on this and I will die a happy chick. Also, they’re local (for us-upstate NY)!
Mason Bee Box in Reclaimed Wood by andrewsreclaimed. $23. Did you know that Mason Bees are the world’s most solitary pollinators? Now you do. And I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous boxes for awhile now. Sure, I’d love the extra help with making my garden (and the earth in general) happy, but let’s face it-that wood burned bee image is downright impossible to resist!
Antique Dough Bowl by lunaparkfoundry. $62. Whether you’re into antiques, the rustic, or modern, there’s no denying that this is just plain cool. This is the type of piece that has so much personality of its own you don’t have to worry about anything else in the room-except maybe a table to put it on, of course.
Jatoba Wood Iphone4 case by woodkaseusa. $49. Come on. A wooden iphone4 case. ‘Nuff said.
Woodburned Gift Tags by LazyLightningArt. $5 for 6. Sure, you could just go with those free gift tag stickers that charity sent you for free in the mail….or you could totally rock your holiday office party, teacher presents, or family gifts with these. We think the choice is clear.
Santos Rosewood Bentwood Ring Lined with Golden Koa by stoutwoodworks. $90. What do you get the person who has everything? This gorgeous bentwood ring. Or, for that matter, any of the gorgeous bentwood rings by stoutwoodworks. A huge variety of woods, inlays, and all custom made, trust us-they’ll thank you for it.
Vintage Rustic Pulley by DonkeeHouse. $36. Okay, I have a confession: I don’t know what I’d do with this. But I do know that I really, really, really love it. The aged wood and old metal combo? I’m a total sucker for it. So feel free to get it for me…I’m sure I could find the perfect place for it. Really.
Ethereal Rising Nested Box Elder Bowls by mayke77. $107. Two words: Yes. Please. Granted, I’m fairly certain if I had these bowls in my possession all I’d do is stare at them all day, but still-pretty sure I’m willing to take that chance. Gorgeous, one of a kind, and breath taking. So again: Yes. Please.
