Table Scraps #1: Beautiful Scrap


We are probably the only stove company with both a laser and a waterjet to cut metal, and staff artists to create designs for our customers.  Not every design creates beautiful scrap, but many do.

When we cut a leaf, for example, the veins fall out, and the rusted scrap looks like dogwood. (see below).  Lots of the natural designs produce this kind of organic scrap, but we also end up with lots of little metal stars, letters, small animals and interesting organic shapes.





















We’ve been inspired by our customer designs and by the scrap table to start making gear for our stoves, and for our homes.  Below is the first cut of a poker head for our “Dear Dennis” tools.  More coming soon...
