Made in West Virginia

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Growing up as the son of a Union Carpenter in NYC, Matt was introduced to construction and woodworking at an early age. He has fond memories of "playing" in the wood shop as a small boy, building wooden toys and helping with home improvement projects. To start his working career, Matt bean a general contracting firm specializing in built-in furniture and cabinetry. But that career ended abruptly in 2011 when a broken back eliminated his ability to provide for his young family. Once Matt regained his mobility, he was able to rebuild his business seemingly overnight. With the support of state tourism agencies, he introduced a new line of handmade wooden wares in 2012. They garnered immediate media attention and filled the production schedule for a year in advance. Now working from his home studio, Matt is able to spend more time with his lovely wife and four kiddos, who in turn... crave time in the wood shop.

Too small, no lines

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Heirloom Recipe Journal:

It would be so much better if you could add paper and use not bound paper and allow to add or remove pages. Have tabs to deliberate sections like breakfast, desserts etc
The other book has lines and a place for a photo. It too is small but I expected more from the much higher priced journal

Comments about UncommonGoods Heirloom Recipe Journal:

My Mother made a school program in the 40s and she made a wood binder for the "housekeeping" paper and pictures she used in the report. My daughter loves it -- it is now hers and loves the wood binder. She will be so pleased she can create her own book

Comments about UncommonGoods Heirloom Recipe Journal:

I bought two of these for Christmas gifts and was very excited to get to fill them out and give them away. When they arrived though, I was disappointed at how generic they seem. There is nothing about it that makes it seem "Uncommon" or worth what it costs. I decided to return them and find something else to gift.

This cookbook is excellent. I gave it as a gift. I took it to a wood engraver to personalize it and it turned out perfectly.

            Was looking for an "empty" recipe keeper my my soon-to-be daughter-in-law who loves to cook. Bought this and am having family members and close family friends hand-write their timeless recipes in the book, along with an notes to the bride. Can't wait to give to her!
