“The actual work of a lumberjack is difficult, dangerous, intermittent and primitive in living conditions, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrate strength, masculinity, confrontation with danger, and resistance to modernisation.“
The material is high quality german walnut tree and as the finishing we have used Italian (Renner Italian) lacquer, which is the organic compound 2- (2-ethoxyethoxy) ethanol of the formula CH3CH2OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH. The lacquer is non-toxic and complies with Directives 67/548 / EEC, 1999 / 45 / EC and 1272/2008. This finishing has been tested for years and makes the surface to prevent moist and dirt.
Finishing works well with oil, water and silicone lubricants. After use, simply rinse the product with water and dry it off. With good care and proper maintenance wood can last forever. Despite full confidence in the safety of our designs, please use the products responsibly and at your own risk. For any questions: teatiamofin(at)gmail.com
Nuts in general can represent toughness due to their hard outer shell. Seeds in general can represent fecundity and fruitfulness as per their nature- but walnuts in particular are a potent symbol of masculinity. While often the nut is thought of as endurence to hardship (seeing a nut broken can be a collapse of defenses) breaking open a nut can also be a good omen – it can represent breaking through the hardships – if the nut is healthy or tasty inside, than take it as a hint that your labors will pay off, and that the struggle was worth it – If the inside is rotten or bitter, than this may symbolize fear and possibility of plans falling through, or hard work not paying off.
Walnut’s three most potent meanings are of sexuality and toughness – and even though all nuts can be reminiscent of manhood, walnuts in particular are ‘the manliest nuts’. Well, in vegitation, anyway.
