Making things by hand using traditional tools and methods in my workshop located in Linglestown, Pennsylvania, USA.

Most used tools - axe, knife, saw, and dividers

Material - trees (wood)

My workshop - picture of my workshop with my workbench in the foreground and all of my tools in their places on shelves on the wall. Sunlight streaming through the open door

My shop is cold in the winter, warm in the summer, and perfect in the spring and fall. I use electricity for my two lights, not for my tools or climate.

Typical items for sale (varies)

  • Cooking and serving spoons
  • Measuring cups
  • Coffee tools
  • Pencils
  • Desk things
  • Classic wooden toys

Everything I make is a 1-of-1, meaning that how each item looks will vary. Vary by the piece of wood I’m working with. My mood. The weather. Inspiration. The way the axe and knife interact with the wood. Etc.

That being said, when you order, say, a coffee scoop, a coffee scoop is what you will receive. What it will look like is hard to say. I won’t know that until I finish making it. Same goes for just about everything (excluding the wooden toys, those are pretty straight forward). In this way, what you are ordering and receiving can possibly fall into the category of art, as well as useful tool for what you need it to do.

Hi there! My name is Aaron Aiken and I look forward to making something for you! Cheers :-)

Some thoughts on perfection

Perfection is over rated. Boring. Predictable. Anyone can do it these days.

Imperfection, on the other hand, offers texture, character, charm, personality, uniqueness.

I choose to celebrate imperfection. I hope you’ll join me.

Sustainable and Traceable

All material (trees) are from Pennsylvania, typically within a 2 hour drive from Harrisburg…in most cases I am able to source wood within my town, only having to drive a few miles or so to pick up. The wood I enjoy using most is wood that otherwise was destined for the chipper.
