Palm Magic

Colour concept by: Patrick Li

Wood Selection: Palm, Cedar, Purple Heart, Wenge

Butterfly Bio: Patrick’s butterfly set, including Palm Magic, Patrick’s Secret, and Padauk Glow, primarily emphasize wood grain patterns. The unique appearance, textures, and contrast achieved for Palm Magic was definitely worth the risk of trying out a brittle exotic wood.

Carol’s Beauty

Colour concept by: Carol Wong Li

Wood Selection: Swamp Ash, Spanish Cedar, Vera, Purple Heart

Butterfly Bio: Simple elegance. The dense textures of Swamp Ash provide an interesting back drop for the subtle colour accents in Carol’s Beauty.


Colour concept by: Sandie Mac

Wood Selection: Wenge, Osage Orange, Vera, Pau Amerello, Walnut, Poplar, Macassar Ebony

Butterfly Bio: The inspiration was to create a green lucky charm with light yellow accents. During the milling process, we came across a piece of bright Osage Orange that just beckoned to be incorporated. We now have an eye catching, golden lucky charm.


Colour concept by: Ivan Ilic

Wood Selection: Walnut, Wenge, Paela

Butterfly Bio: Wally was made with offcuts from walnut slabs we purchased from a local sawmill that promotes urban tree salvage. Our intention was to use Wally as a test piece for all stages of milling. The playful Wenge freckles and bright Paela body Ivan added had everyone telling us they love Wally!
