Last day for shipping 2014 orders is Dec. 19 and our workshop will resume operations on Jan 02. Thanks for a great 2014!

Lately there's been a small set of albums I've been listening to constantly and I figured I could just share and see what you guys are listening to as well.

The steel pipe fixture craze was cool, but sometimes over-kill for small spaces and also fittings can get expensive. If you’re looking for a smaller scale shelf, love the look of copper and playing with fire… here’s your DIY.

Copper Pipe Hi-Fi Shelf

In my pursuit to cover everything in leather, here's a fun and frivolous one. It looks cool, requires almost no material and is quite simple. PURE KEY LUXURY.

Design Week Portland is upon us again, and we're happy to be a part of it again. So many exciting events on this roster, it's going to be the best DWP yet.

Since we've moved into a larger workshop, there's so much more room to breathe. As a side-effect, new plants keep showing up. Beth, one of our designers, came up with a sharp idea to make a svelte plant hanger DIY.

Recently, one of my best amigos purchased a little fixer-upper project in Joseph, Oregon. I've heard great things about the little town, but until a few weeks ago, hadn't seen it myself.

This project has been on my mind for a while. It was one of the earliest conversations I had with Brooke when we were chatting about her artwork over a year ago.

I've been meaning to add some new belt models for a while, and I'm happy to finally show them off. Now that the dust is settling and some client catch-up work is back on schedule, I can get back to our own offerings.

New Belts: the Harrison, the Martin and the Matchstick

July 18, 2014

We've been working on our take for the standard dopp kit for a while now... Even releasing a very traditional shape to our retail partners earlier this year. After producing a few dozen of them, we wanted something a little different and more fun to make. Following a regular production run and an afternoon of feverish experimenting, the new shape emerged.

The season for campfires is upon us. Whether you're in the forest or in your backyard, a simple DIY fire starter is super helpful. Tiandra, of the W&F family, is sharing her fire starter recipe today.

Here's just a check-in of recent things happening in the shop. Firstly, we're introducing brown stained Ash legs to the campstool options. The darker brown legs looks amazing with all the colors, with my favorite being the tan combo.

For the last two and a half years, W&F has been happily working out of the Beam&Anchor space in Northeast Portland. In about a month, we will be moving. 

Heavy Moves

Took a rare couple days off recently and decided to check out Bagby Hot Springs in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Even though Bagby has earned decidedly rowdy reputation, I hoped it would be sleepy on a weekday.

I'm always experimenting in the shop with new plans. After starting to use some new leathers in our products, more ideas started to emerge. 

Beautiful Departure

Here's about the simplest strap you could make... but as with most of my DIYs on here, it was created out of a certain necessity.

Camera Mini-Strap

April 16, 2014

Lately I've been working with some new leathers from SB Foot Tannery from Red Wing, Minnesota. The surface feel and weight is perfect for watch straps and our camera wrist strap.

Exploring Materials: New Watch Straps

Most of the time, I feel like my style is straightforward. I try to be simple, but I have been known to veer to the dandy side with certain details. This DIY is going to be one of them. 

Western Fringe Brogue DIY

January 31, 2014

A friend once introduced me to the word 'hermitage'. No one wants to be called a hermit, but hermitage has a slightly more regal sound to it. I have a tendency to hide out sometimes and I'm perfectly comfortable with that.

I've not done a record review post in a loooong while. Having no time to sit and relax with an album is one thing, but also I like to wait for interesting and smaller release gems too.

Duquette Johnston Review + Giveaway

January 15, 2014

I don’t get too crazy on my adventuring these days, but there’s a few canoe spots near Portland that you could easily get confused and not realize where you put the boat in. Throw in some bad cell reception and maps won’t save you either.

Compass Pouch DIY

November 27, 2013

Regular billfolds can be bulky. This one is slim, with two full pockets for cards and a western style mini-pocket to keep your most used cards handy.

Well, it has been a looong time since I did the jar sleeve DIY, and they are finally coming to the store. I think they're really great gifts for the upcoming season, especially coupled with a bag of coffee beans or a jug of cider.

Official W&F Leather Jar Sleeves

We've been asked plenty of times, "What bag should I get?" I know the right answer isn't always 'one of each', so let's talk about what you can stuff into them, intended purposes, and a few other details concerning Wood&Faulk bag sizing.

Which Bag For What?

November 10, 2013

Well, another year passes and I'm late in realizing it. Yesterday it seems, was the third birthday for Wood&Faulk. Such a crazy feeling thinking back on this project and what it has become.
