I like the idea of repurposing wood from objects that had a life as something else. This resonates with me most when that object was used in a particularly unglamorous way, for instance, a bowl or a spoon, before it became jewelry. With something a bit more unique and specialized, like a musical instrument, it’s nice to give that wood a life after it has been considered no longer worthy of the original task.
