We’d been looking for some finely handcrafted small wood products for the home, at affordable prices, and finally found Wooden Images. Located in Missoula MT, the workshop was founded in 1980 in John Bakula’s garage. In 1981 his brother Mark joined him, and they’ve been designing and creating intricately patterned items that are original, functional and beautiful since then. “We pride ourselves on meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail and feel it shows in the beauty and durability of each piece we make. There are no computers doing any of the work, just two guys, with imagination and decades of experience, and some power tools.”
The pieces we will feature this year include some great gift items – magnetic knife-racks, cutting boards, business card holders (pictured above), hair barrettes, and feather-light earrings.
