Classic things just feel right in your hand. Equally, making timeless pieces for others is satisfying in a similar way. Bermuda cedar is unique to our island located in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Historically this hard, rot-resistant wood has shaped our homes and the schooners that ventured out in search of fortune and commerce. After Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar a Bermuda schooner, the “Pickle”, was dispatched with the news to England. My daughter often asked why I did not make something different from the beer openers shown here but each piece is a one of a kind due to the twists and turns of the knarled wood we love.
