There are plenty of woodworkers that make handcrafted kitchen tools but few do it with as much spirit and soul as Joshua Vogel.
At his woodworking shop in in Kingston, New York, Vogel has a wholesome approach to wood. When Vogel takes on a chunk of wood he looks for the form that can be found within it: Perhaps a cutting board, a round salad bowl or an abstract sculpture. Once he has carved out his creation, Vogel then turns the scraps of wood into spoons and other kitchen utensils. The last of the leftover shavings and bits of wood are then burned in his backyard smoker.
Vogel sells his boards, bowls and spoons through several shops and at Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading, so we know where we’ll be going for our cutting boards from now on.
