Why You Will Love Brisla
The majority of our products are made out of local fallen trees. The city cannot cut any trees that are not at the end of their life for one reason or another. Here is where we come in – helping people enjoy the trees of Long Beach for a little bit longer. Converting Long Beach fallen trees into home decor, such as, stumps, nightstands, cutting boards, charcuterie boards, coasters, shelves, and many more.
“My woodworking journey began when I reached out to my great late friend, Mas Hayashi, to help me make a table for my aquarium. He then became my mentor who passed along skills acquired from the one and only Sam Maloof. My passion for woodworking came instantly. As I watched more videos on YouTube and learned from fellow woodworkers, I truly came to understand the joy of working with wood and the beauty of wood on its own nevertheless with a touch of craftsmanship.
These experiences led to the opening of LB Wood Designs. Using renewable material. Appreciating the value, time and energy of handmade items. Passing the energy through projects onto customers (The “Wu”).”
