Hello from Meb Boden and Tom Vaiciulis! All of our work, from layout to finish, is made of New England hardwoods, in our rural, 600-square-foot workshop.
Unlike some craftspeople who are simply designers with a factory here or abroad, and a warehouse of stock waiting to ship, Tom and I design and MAKE each piece that comes out of our workshop. Our simplest piece, the humble cheese knife, takes 11 steps, but most require 20 steps to complete.
Come to a show to get first dibs on our newest inventions and our one-of-a-kind work. But if we aren’t nearby and you need a fun gift for a foodie in your life, please click on our catalog for easy shopping.
The high quality of our work is the same whether you buy online or at a show. The only difference between the two is this: online we must maintain a close resemblance to the photos, so you’ll know what you’re getting. At shows we have no restrictions, so there’s more variety in both our work and in the woods we use.
No big factory, no outsourcing, no crowds of employees. Just us. Meb and Tom. And a few friends from time to time. So we DON’T keep masses of product (all the same) ready for purchase. When you want something, maybe we’ll find the one you want waiting here in the workshop. But most likely we’ll make you one, out of the type of wood you want, with special requests (use your imagination) sprinkled in for good measure.
Our last two shows of 2013 are coming up! After that, we’ll be elves in the workshop as we finish up your holiday orders. Please note:
No website orders after December 11th for Christmas arrival.
AND THEN Tom and I will take a much-needed breather from shows. Whew!!!! How Long a Break? We’re just not sure… We plan to look at new directions for Meb’s Kitchenwares, work on the house and get my writing off the ground. We’ll stay in touch, though, and let you know what we’re up to.
Wishing you peace and good fortune in the coming months. Meb and Tom
