From tree to treen
Hand made from wood of responsibly sourced branches and trunks of local trees and shrubs
“All day and night, save winter, every weather,
Above the inn, the smithy, and the shop,
The aspens at the cross-roads talk together
Of rain, until their last leaves fall from the top.”
At Het Noeste Leven I make products from fresh wood. You will find examples of the things that I have made, but also photos and videos of how I made them. For example under ‘the motto explained’, where I show how the attention, the craft and the adventure combine and thus form a way of thinking and living. You can find more specific information about the tools and processes I use in my blog, which will be updated with new videos and explanations on an (ir)regular basis.
Some of the products that I make are also available for sale on this website. Because they are all unique, hand-made products, I will always have different products in my shop. When you see a product that you would like to have, that is not available any more, please do not hesitate to send me a message. Perhaps I can make something similar for you.
Enjoy my website,
