Matt at Wood & Faulk
Matt first made his first set of belts a year ago for his “belt project”, during which he sold several belts at cost and the recipients each documented how their belts looked after six months of wear.
If you watch this video about the belt project, you’ll notice Matt uses a hand tool to bevel the belt’s edges. This took was time consuming and initially turned Matt off from making belts for sale on his store, but since then he’s upgraded to the edge finisher that’s pictured above. He pulls the belt through and it shaves the edges smooth in one pass.
After deliberating over the design of white stitching, Matt settled on the design pictured above.
One of the first places I found Matt’s projects was on his friend Victoria’s website SF Girl By Bay. She really drew my attention to the home improvement projects he’s undertaken to convert his tiny 103-year-old house into a unexpectedly stylish hideaway.

Matt shows me the Kubb project that will become his latest submission to Design Sponge. It’s a Swedish lawn game. The next product that may appear in the Wood & Faulk store is a nicer version of his Folding Tripod Camp Stool, which won’t be finished prototyping until next week.
