Welcome to Four Seasons

Leaning Locust Woodcraft

Welcome to Lee Douma from Leaning Locust Woodcraft. You can find his wood crafts and hand crafted wood utensils at Four Seasons Local Market starting this week.
Lee: Growing up in West Michigan, Lee developed an appreciation for trees and wood while wandering and working in the woods with his family. He enjoyed learning to distinguish between the oaks, maples, sassafras, and other trees in the family’s plot of woods. His family heated their house with wood, so he spent more time than he might have liked splitting wood and moving it from the woods to the trailer, the trailer to the driveway, the driveway to the basement, and the basement to the wood stove. This quality time with wood helped him develop an eye for grain variations and the practical usefulness of this resource.

Wood Sources: The vast majority of wood Lee uses is from the woods on family farmland west of Waynetown, Indiana. He harvests almost exclusively from trees that have fallen in storms or from dead trees that have been standing (or leaning) for years. Some of the trees--especially the rot-resistant black locust--have been hanging around on or just above the ground for decades. Occasionally a friend or family member comes across some particularly attractive wood from another source and sets it aside for him. (If you are interested in having custom pieces made from some of your own wood, let him know.)

Process: All of the pieces Lee sells are handcrafted using a bandsaw, power grinders, gouges, and belt sanders. Each item is sanded and treated with food-safe mineral oil before being buffed with beeswax from his bees (or, when his bees get lazy, from other local beekeepers).
