Weathered wood cabinet

Barnboard cabinet made with weathered wood and a hand pounded copper top. The door is one piece of wood and the latch is made from a Juniper bush. This rustic cabinet was made at Wilderness Creations in Dublin, New Hampshire.

Vacation Home.

Vacation homes and rustic retreats are very special places, especially these days. Our days seem to get faster and more busy and stressful, but when you go to your cottage or cabin away from it all you can hopefully relax and rejuvenate. That is what they are for and the payoff for the hard work. These get a ways don't need to be extravagant, just peaceful and comfortable. A place where the phone isn't always ringing and the computer isn't always on, where the entertainment is the wildlife and the sunsets. To call some place a retreat really says it all. It's a special escape from life's daily stresses. As we move into summer, I hope you all have a chance to get away and reflect and relax, whether it is at your own second home or out on a vacation. Enjoy!

Quality Rustic Furniture

Quality products and service do cost more. At Wilderness Creations we work with each customer individually to help them find what they are looking for. We, the owners of the company, handle every order. We strive to sell only items that we believe in and that we would have in our own home. That means offering products that will last for many years, even multiple family generations, and still look beautiful. I believe our pricing has always been fair and in some cases incredible, relative to other galleries. So, it's true you may find furniture for cheaper but it is going to be cheaper and not last as well. If that is the route you want to take then I don't judge, that is fine with me. At Wilderness Creations we want every customer to be pleased with their purchase and happy with their experience. We are here after the sale as well, to handle concerns such as returns, damage, or repairs. That is what quality, service, and value are all about. There are furnishings on line for cheap money, but make sure that you are getting good quality and that if you have a problem that the company will be there to help, otherwise it is just wasted money. So, if you appreciate the "old school" way of doing business, with personal attention and quality merchandise then Wilderness Creations can help. We offer a huge selection of rustic and Adirondack style furnishings and accessories for your entire home.
Thank you for your support and your business, we do appreciate it.

The Rustic Home

Within the last week I was fortunate enough to be able to visit two different rustic homes that were very different but both felt comfortable and inviting.
The first was in Vermont on a lovely piece of property that has a wetland area within it. You could sit and watch the Ducks and Geese for hours as they tend to their eggs or search for food. The home itself is a small cabin with a sleeping loft. It has everything that my two friends need, all within a compact space that easily connects to extensive outdoor living spaces. The natural wood walls and field stone fireplaces help tie it to the outdoors, along with stick cabinet handles and log furniture.
The other home is located on a beautiful lake in Maine. This summer retreat built in the great camp style is very large, with 10 bedrooms and a great room that has three field stone fireplaces! But you still feel that rustic warmth. The cottage was built in 1910, so you are surrounded by history but feel connected to the outdoors as well. The bead board walls, field stone fire places, stick door latches and rustic style furniture all come together perfectly. The front porch is over 40 feet long with rocker after rocker. Inside you'll find Old Hickory Furniture and unique pieces from the early 1900's, as well as recently crafted rustic furniture.
Both of these rustic homes create a special, comfortable and welcoming feeling that is appreciated as soon as you walk in. What a great thing to be able to accomplish in your vacation retreat or your year round home. If you have ever dreamed of having a special place like this then set some goals and pursue your dreams. You can do it.

Home Improvement

How do you want your home to feel? Everybody has different interests and different things that make them feel good. We have all been into houses that feel cold, depressing, or dismal and houses that feel bright, joyful or warm. For most of us, we want as many as those positive adjectives as possible to be used when our homes are described. Don't you want home to be a great place to spend time, where you feel good? Of course you do, so the question is what will make that feeling possible in your home? Maybe it is making some small changes to an already great house or maybe it's time for some big renovations. Either way it is an ongoing project to improve your home, so I encourage you to think about some possible changes or alterations that would make your home even more pleasurable, which in turn will make those that live there feel better. Making changes doesn't have to be expensive, it can be as simple as rearranging the furniture, hanging some new pictures, or changing the paint color. Take a look around and imagine the possibilities!

In the workshop

Hello there! Just an update on what's happening in the Wilderness Creations workshop. I've begun work on a rustic plant pedestal stand that has a base from an old burly piece of wood. I am planning to do some twig work on the top and the whole piece will stand about 3' 8" tall.
Also, I am working on a table lamp made from an old weathered 4 by 4. I ran into a step that challenged me and I tried several different solutions but have now figured out how to proceed. Sometimes I just have to set projects aside for a while until the answers come. This was one of those projects that has been on the workbench for quite sometime, so I'm psyched to continue on with it. The lamp has copper and leather along with the gray wood.
I will post some pictures soon of these and other projects going on in the workshop.

New Hamphire Ice Storm

In December of 2008 the Monadnock area and much of the state witnessed an incredible ice storm. I have never seen anything like it and I have lived in New England and other northern states for all of my life. The freezing rainy drizzle continued for hour after hour through the night and in the early morning hours I began to hear some branches breaking, and the rain continued. Finally there was a point when almost no tree was safe from the weight and the crumbling of the forest really began. It was like a war zone (not that I have ever been in a war zone so it is an exaggeration) with loud crashes and cracks. Trees were falling all around our house and it was too dangerous to go outside. It was so powerful yet so sad as well. The forest was falling and there was no end in sight. The power was long gone and little did we know at that time that it would be out for two more weeks. We stayed in the house and tried to make a plan because we wanted to get to the gallery to check on things and try to keep it from freezing. The power and our heat were out in Dublin for sure. Many hours later in the afternoon I ventured out to check the road. You couldn't tell it was a road, every tree was bent over and larger trees had fallen across the road. Tree tops and limbs continued to rain down to the ground in dramatic style. We decided we couldn't wait any longer and started to cut our way out. Eventually it got too dark and we had to return home. The next morning we started in again and hours later got the truck out even though we still had to crash through icy limbs. There were branches everywhere and we spent days just beginning the cleanup. Eventually the ice melted off and the trees rebounded a bit but we would still be without power for many days. On Christmas eve our power came back but when we woke up Christmas morning it was out again. There are still branches everywhere and for years we will see the damage and hear the hanging branches coming down. Thousands of people have dramatic stories of this storm and had there yards and land altered.

Something good can come out of it though (other than a lifetime supply of firewood). Put some of that wood and storm debris to good use. I will build you some fun, useful furniture out of your branches and trees. Gather your sticks and your ideas and I will incorporate them into a piece of furniture. Have a nice piece of rustic furniture instead of just another burn pile. The cost is only $20. per hour plus materials. If this is of interest to you then stop by the gallery and speak with me, or call 563-7010. Let's recycle some of that wood into a chair, table, planter, lamp or something else useful.
