Welcome to sloydontherock.com.
The word ‘Sloyd’* is a Nordic word, loosely translated as ‘ingenious craft’. In woodcraft it involves creating useful objects taking into account the nature of greenwood and using the direction of the grain to one’s advantage. The products in the Gallery are all handmade using edge tools and therefore the tool marks are visible. They are not removed by sanding down because the carved facets impart a rustic personality characteristic to the products you see here.
* Sloyd is written Slöjd in Swedish
