New Wood-Shaved Trees - Spanbaum - for 2014

Posted on October 20, 2014 | 0 Comments

We have added to our popular Wood-Shaved Tree - Spanbaum offerings this year and we wanted to post the video here in our blog on how they are created. They are just so very special. They have many names - Spanbaum, span trees, wood shaved trees, chip or chipped trees, twilled trees, and curled trees. They were first created by Spanbaumstecherei (carvers of Spanbaum trees) in the 1930s and are crafted from the wood of a linden tree - the trunk lathed, and then each branch carved from that trunk, curl by curl. Watch the video - the process is exquisite.


We know you will enjoy these two new special trees - a 10" Spanbaum in green which is simply gorgeous  

and a 12" Spanbaum, wood-chipped, tree with a woodpecker nestled in the tree, pecking away...  

In addition, we now carry a Spanbaum, wood-chipped / wood-shaved, Christmas tree topper. 

They are a sight to behold - watching the video, seeing them pictured, and holding them in your hands.
