Funky artisans creates new gismo accidentally

Woodz2Artz, a small local company has just found a way to make your closets smell wonderful and be visually appealing at the same time. Today, one of Woodz2Artz designers found a way to take a beautiful piece of cedar wood and turn it into an artistic expression for the closet inside the company door.

Due to situations and people coming and going, the closet inside the company’s main door seems to take on a funky smell, which bothered this young designer and soon he was attempting various ways to eliminate the smell...everything from powders to sachets were tried, but nothing seemed to work really well, until about two weeks ago when he accidentally left a piece of Canadian cedar in his pocket and hung his shop coat in the closet over the weekend, only to return to a closet that smelled wonderful and fresh...just like the great outdoors.

It was then that this young designer had a vision. Removing the piece of cedar from his pocket, he drilled a hole in the top, and left it on his bench as he worked on other projects. At some point during the day, he glanced at the piece of wood and realized he saw a pattern developing...it was a flower.

After work that evening, he pulled down some artist’s paints and painted in his vision, placed a piece of wire through the hole he had drilled and hung it in the closet beside his coat when leaving for the night.

That simple piece of cedar was now functional and used up some material which otherwise would have found its way to the scrap pile that the company shreds and sells for animal bedding and potpourri.

Today, Woodz2Artz has added this product to their exciting and growing product line. Check out their online catalogue to learn about other products now available.

    Sorry, link did not work. Cedar was what my Dad lined the basement closet with so my Mother could put away the clothes for the opposite season. It was a walk in closet and always smelled fresh even years later. Very nice article, great uses for cedar and brought back some good memories too.
