Nordkraut + Jonas Granfors


Our beautiful chopping boards and tamper are made by Finnish artisan carpentry Jonas Granfors. The natural beauty of wood can be seen in simple and functional forms.

“It’s been a long one, searching for the profession where I could finally feel at home, be creative at my own pace and make decisions that I can stand behind.

After many years in the swedish restaurant scene, I finally dared to make the plunge. I moved back to Vaasa, my hometown in Finland. I decided to educate myself in Artisan Carpentry to create my own journey with wood and determination

I believe that by respecting the tradition of crafting we can create new history. By renewing traditional crafting, we can put Finland and Scandinavia on the world map.

This old tradition and the forms found in nature inspire me to bravely experiment with new ideas and turn those into products where art and functionality meet.” – Jonas Granfors.
