Falling in Love with Woodworking

Lately, I’ve been obsessing over the beauty and craftsmanship of woodworking. I’m in the process of researching various artisans, as I’d really like some quality art and/or furniture pieces in our home. Most recently, my favorite woodworkers have become Ariel Alasko and Blair Sligar of Hog Eat Hog.

Yesterday, I informed Hubby that I’d like to reach out to Ariel and speak about commissioning one of her large wood panels, for our living-room.  (I think he’s on-board with the idea; which makes me completely ecstatic!)

While I’d like to do a little more research on Hog Eat Hog, I’m feeling pretty compelled to reach out to Mr. Sligar, to learn more about the types of wood he works with; and to commission his services for the entryway table I’ve been dreaming of.

Oh yes… I need more of this in my life.
