"It's all about the wood for me. I am not into fancy decorations; the natural beauty of the wood is usually enough. I enjoy making all kinds of things from wood…somehow I never get frustrated when I am problem solving with wood."
Carved wine stoppers, spoons, walking sticks, breadboards and bookshelves – if it can be made from wood, chances are Walter George has made it. His previous career was 30 years as an Electronics Technician; Walter had years of experience with detailed work before he turned his life long affair with wood into a profession. Now he is best known for his unique, wooden kitchen utensils and furniture with clean, Shaker-inspired lines. No two handles are alike on his spoons and spatulas that are prized for their comfortable fit and beautiful wood grain. Walter favours colourful, local woods such as plum, cherry and maple for his smaller items and yellow or white birch for his furniture designs. Walter's breadboards are both glued and pegged for stability. Available in many sizes and designs, they are suitable for cutting on but so attractive that you will want to serve from them too.
