WoodnPieces Etsy shop & Amazon giveaway
Thanks to WoodnPieces, we now have some beautiful wooden coasters for the living room and a wooden cutting board for the kitchen. The cool thing about these pieces is that they're all shaped like the state of Michigan! My wife grew up there and is tickled by all things Michigan.
James (of the WoodnPieces shop) has a variety of board games, cutting boards, and other home decor stuff, all made of wood. He even has candy dispensers, which would make a fun gift for someone, or perhaps you could satisfy your own candy cravings.
The board and coaster set I have goes for $65 - not bad, and a great value for something that will last a long time. The pieces are made of all-natural hardwoods in a striped pattern, and you can see the different colors of wood there. Very cool.
The cutting board is finished with a custom mineral oil and wax finish for a beautiful matte patina. Since it's not too big and not too small, it's a great size for counter work even if you don't have much space. Or, as my wife suggested, the board is a nice size for cheese and crackers when we have guests over.
The coasters are beautifully handcrafted and finished with a mineral oil/beeswax finish to enhance the natural grains of the wood. James also has coasters shaped like apples and slices of bread, so check those out.
And speaking of looks, we love the wood coasters in our rustic living room. More people need to go with the wood look in our opinion rather than plastic or artificial stuff. Although, I must say we still need drapes and wall decor.
A word to the wise about taking care of your wood pieces - they should never be placed in the dishwasher or submerged in water. And it's good I was reminded of this since we're programmed to just toss everything in the dishwasher. Wipe the pieces with a damp cloth and dry them off right away to preserve the life.
Every piece from WoodnPieces is original and handcrafted with variation depending on the wood species and color. You'll find that no two coasters are alike, so your set will be completely unique!
