Retired carpenter from New Zealand, went viral, after his daughter started posting pictures of his wooden cabinets on social media. The wooden dresser look like it has cracked in the middle, but when you look closer, it reveals this cracked up piece is meticulously handcrafted!
Work in wood is his passion for 53 years!
Henk Verhoeff got a gift for doing woodwork. He’s an absolute master! His amazing logic-defying furniture that looks like it’s straight out of a Disney movies.
But it all started with first post on social media. Henk’s daughter shared her father’s works on Facebook and people fell in love with them!
Now, his facebook page “One Of A Kind Woodwork Creations By Henk” has
94k followers! And it’s growing very fast.
“I describe my style of furniture as broken and weird. I like making weird furniture, something that you don’t see in a shop” – said the woodworker in an interview with boredpanda.com
While Henk’s wooden creations appear to be cracked, they are fully functional
Creating such work requires extraordinary concentration and focus. Each piece can take anywhere from 80 to 100 hours to complete, depending on how complicated his design is.
We don’t have good information for people, who’d love to buy his work:
“I started creating them for the pure love of it without the intention of selling them” he explained.
“But when I run out of space, there will be an eBay auction or two. Everything is for sale… except for my wife” – he said jokingly. For now, all the cabinets are decorating Henk’s hallway.
