For centuries, quality wood has remained a cornerstone of both structural and artisanal craftsmanship. Even now, in the age of carbon fibe, aluminium alloy and stainless steel, wood still has its seat at the table, a table most likely made out of wood. Being men who respect their wood, we’re all too aware that the material comes in a massive range of varieties and colours. That’s why we’ve decided to narrow things down a bit for this month’s Amazon Finds, looking for products made out of light wood in particular. Wearing its own creation on its sleeve, each entry on the list exudes a kind of rugged beauty that hasn’t gone out of style for eons. Presenting our Amazon Finds for November 2017. Because you can never have too much light wood in your life.
Modway Fathom Plywood Lounge Chair
Made from moulded plywood, the Modway Fathom Plywood Lounge Chair touts a remarkable wood grain pattern and steadfast ergonomic design. Thanks to a lightweight veneer and sturdy construction, the chair retains a scratch-free lustre over the course of years. Rubber foot pads at the bottom absorb shock and keep the chair from moving around.
Tomons Led Desk Lamp
Inspired by Scandinavian design, the acclaimed Tomons LED Desk Lamp is a minimalist stunner of impeccable versatility. Pairing light, natural wood with braided nylon cable and metal components, the lamp delivers sturdy, long-lasting performance. Also featured are three adjustable joints that allow you to maneuvre the lamp’s angles anyway you like. Set this baby up and watch it breathe new life into the workspace.
Kotobuki Fruit Knife with Wood Cover
Japan’s Kotobuki gives their 420 series stainless steel Fruit Knife a refined home of its own by housing it in a light wooden cover. That’s joined by a matching wooden handle, rounding out the blade’s artisanal and aesthetic distinction. Throw in a completely affordable price tag and this offer becomes too good to refuse.

Tosaryu Hinoki Toothbrush Holder
Far more than an elegant, wood-based bathroom accessory, the Hinoki Toothbrush Holder is downright optimal. That’s because hinoki wood has natural anti-bacterial properties, making it resistant to mold, mildew and rot. Thanks to holes at the bottom, the holder is also supremely quick drying. And did we mention it also smells nice? Indeed, this seemingly simple toothbrush holder is all kinds of crafty.
Areaware Bottle Opener

Samdi Wood Cell Phone Stand

Field Notes Cherry Graph 3-Pack
Hosting real cherry wood on the front and back covers, the Field Notes Cherry Graph 3-Pack packs even more wood inside–and by that we mean 48 smooth pages of graph paper. What? Paper is a form of wood, too (when you really think about it).
