I work with a variety of wood when making toys; it really depends on what’s available. All of the timber is responsibly sourced and is genuinely sustainable having naturally fallen on my land. I like to leave dead wood on the ground to encourage flora and fauna – beetles and bugs love it, so I never take too much. We cut wood and then leave it to dry out for a few months – turning new wood is a bad idea because it tends to shrink and split. Made for pleasure As the collection grows I feel more in touch with my environment. I’ve done all kinds of crafts over the years, but turning wood is something I genuinely enjoy doing, and I love crafting these mini works of art (though one or two are quite generous in size!). There’s something soothing about finding just the right spot on the gouge to make a clean cut, and watching the curls of wood form. Even the sawdust isn’t wasted – it’s used for pet bedding! The lathe and tools I use were purchased from a lady whose father was a cabinet maker. It had sentimental value to her, and I loved hearing her telling us how he’d taught her to use it. I’m really glad that we’ve given it a home where it’ll be cared for and used to bring others joy! The dildos and plugs are of course handmade for your pleasure and a bit of fun. I hope you’re looking forward to enjoying them soon.
