wood and faulk.

okay, so back to the matt. i mentioned earlier that matt, who’s a portland-based designer, had introduced me (via the www) to his girlfriend lisa’s photography. well i just discovered matt’s been holding out on me (or, at the very least, being quite shy) about his new blog, and shop of the same name wood & faulk.

i’ve followed matt’s crafts and creations for a long time on flickr, and now he’s sharing his diy tips on his blog, wood & faulk. matt builds bikes, he’s restoring and decorating his new home, he builds headboards, and refinishes furniture, all with sublime style. so i was pretty excited to see he’s made it all official, and is sharing his secrets with us on wood & faulk.

he even shares his pickling tips — as well as his great musical taste! like everything matt does wood & faulk is super swell, i think you’ll be impressed. and be sure and check out the handy diy tools and paumes books (below) he’s sharing in his shop, too.

*as you may have imagined, many of these photos were taken by lisa warninger.
