We just love the natural rose hue in this Juniper. For him or for her- this would make a great gift. This razor features a Juniper handle and chrome finish. This razor comes with a small piece of the original wood.
The handle was made by Herman de Vries.
Woodturning is a labour of love for Herman de Vries. Herman has been turning beautiful pieces since 1995, when he got his first lathe. prior to that, Herman had worked on various furniture products, but felt that he needed another method to explore his artistic side.
"It came full circle when I went to the lonely spot where my parents homesteaded and where I was born. I saw the old maple trees that my father and mother had planted in the early 1920s, and saw that some of them were dying. Taking the wood from that dying tree and turning it into a piece of turned art became a way of preserving something that represented to my father and mother, in their youth, the future. I am their future, and the tree was their future."
When Herman takes a piece of wood to the lathe, the wood "speaks" to him, and ultimately the wood takes on it's own form and finish. What motivates him the most is to see a piece of wood and recognize within it a possibility, a potential, for a piece of art.
