If we can dream it, Dennis (the kind + brilliant old-school woodworking mastermind behind August Fischer) can build it. Most of his handcrafted pieces are made just for us from off cuts and scraps that he rescues from the kindling pile, hand selecting the prettiest pieces to live another life as beautiful, humble objects of utility. To Dennis, the "prettiest" woods (he works with locally sourced hardwoods—Oak, Cherry, Maple, and Butternut, among others) are the ones that show the character of the tree, the grain, the knots, the history of its life. Dennis loves history. And a good story. Did you know that the beautiful diamond hard maple he uses to make our Anna's special Foundry candleholders is the same kind used in the first-ever skateboard decks? It's true! Everyone needs a Dennis. Luckily, we've got one.
