Notionmade Furniture is a one-man shop handcrafting furniture, musical instruments, and sometimes items with no apparent purpose. Items often incorporate salvaged items and materials. Projects develop from a feeling roused from the material or notion to try a design. I must admit that most projects are a whim. Seldom is a commission accepted, but ingenious suggestions are always considered.
Why handcraft? For that matter, why buy a handcraft? The answer is not simple like the question. Each of us has our own need or reason for handcraft. To some it is a mark of quality or that it was crafted with care. Some do it to support the craftsman or local community. Some feel that they are sharing in a story or they have a connection. While others are appreciative of how it is made.
Often it is just because.
