Thushara Knops owner of Sawdust Netherlands

As the owner of Sawdust Netherlands, I started this brand because I have a genuine passion for creating things. There’s something truly special about taking raw materials and turning them into something beautiful and functional. Woodworking is one of the most rewarding ways to do this, and I’ve always been drawn to the art of craftsmanship that comes with it.

Woodworking is not just a hobby for me, it’s a way of life. I find the process of working with wood to be incredibly meditative and therapeutic. It’s a great way to channel my creativity and produce something that I’m truly proud of.

Starting Sawdust has been a dream come true for me. It’s allowed me to share my passion with others and build a community around something that I truly love doing. Being able to inspire others who are interested in woodworking has been incredibly rewarding.

Through Sawdust, I want to inspire others to take up woodworking and find the same joy and satisfaction that I have found in this craft.

I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my craft and push my limits. For me, woodworking is not just about making things, it’s about constantly evolving and learning new techniques and skills. It’s about challenging myself to do better and create something truly exceptional.

Woodworking is a constantly evolving craft, and there is always something new to learn and experiment with. By staying open to new possibilities and constantly challenging myself, I believe that I can continue to grow as a woodworker and create things that are truly exceptional. Whether it’s a piece of furniture, a decorative item or a custom project, I look forward to the next creative challenge and continue to explore my passion for woodworking.

Overall, starting Sawdust has been an amazing journey for me. It’s allowed me to turn my passion into something tangible and share it with the world. I’m excited to continue to grow and evolve as a woodworker, and to continue building a community of like-minded individuals who share my love of the craft.
