In the age of IKEA and large retail shopping- people often forget that mass production comes with a price… The price of quality and uniqueness. There are so many people who enjoy creating their own furniture using woodworking, to not only furnish their homes but help to furnish the homes of others around them. Some found that making money off of woodworking projects helps to put a little extra income in their pockets, offering a quality and unique product in their home. If you’re one of the people who value quality and want to have the right craftsmanship in your home- meet Paul Hlabse!
Paul is the owner of InkedWoodworking, and for the past several years he has sold his unique crafty woodwork to almost 1000 people!
Paul’s woodwork is inspired by so many things, and you can see that when you enter his Etsy shop and see just how variant his work is! From making a bookshelf inspired by the cat in the hat, to making children’s play horses, from making newspaper and toys stands for kids’ rooms- to making a simple classy living room table… By using an array of tools such as the best drill press on the market, he is able to totally transform simple pieces of wood into masterpieces. Paul is simply so talented! Making all of these wonderful items can be a messy job, of course with all of the leftover wood trimmings from them, hopeful he uses something similar to a silica dust vacuum to keep his work area and trimming free!
He started off shipping only to the US, but “with great talent comes great responsibility” and Paul understands that and can ship outside the US to make as many people happy as he can!
