ABOUT THIS PROJECT

We are the HayWüd company - a best-in-breed independent artist studio based in the NYC metro area. We love wood and carving it into awesome contemporary wood designs.

 

 

You may think your dog is just adorable and such a good boy, but no dog can sit, stay, or play dead better than top “Dogwood”. The Dogwood breed is a new blue-ribbon canine and truly a Woodwork of Art, the ultimate family dog with all tree and no bark!.

The dog breed originated in the forests and was created to be companion and friend with perky ears that move and a head that can rotate. They love being with people and are adaptable to a variety of homes and lifestyles. 

Notice the alert stance and good-natured, affectionate profile just right for standing guard on shelf but with a softer intensity than their pedigreed cousins. There is a subtle mixture in breed as distinct as one tree is to another that allows them to excel where the purebred lack.

Not yet recognized by the American Kennel Club, you could best describe this breed as intelligent, reliable, and absolutely adorable. Always on the lookout for fun they’ll make you laugh while entertaining himself. They are friendly and happy, with a lively nature endearing to everyone.

 

 

 

There is no love like puppy love. We carry the Dogwood’s handcrafted appeal over into our free-range puppies as well, available in various colours to include Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, and Maple. Each has Wenge wood for accents and complimentary wood features.

Hydrant

Aside from our love of dogs, we are also excited about our accent piece, the Hydrant. A dog’s companion when it’s time to go. Made from solid Padauk hardwood and stands 3 inches tall.

Each piece also comes with our personal logo burned into the base.

We are scouting the area for affordable space to expand into since our current location is so tight.

Which brings us to the entire point of this campaign, aside from launching the awesome new products we just revealed.

 

 

 

 

 

We intend to use the remaining proceeds, after covering expenses for the rewards and the cost of wood, to invest in setting up a shop as a manufacturing location. We are extremely optimistic about this since we have already started scouting out new locations farther away from the NYC area. Our dream model is delivering exceptional product and profitably run an American toy factory and achieve full independence working with a local crew, and we need to start somewhere. Help us rev up this venture into a full blown wood factory in the US!

Specifics

We use prime quality wood lumber imported from various parts of the world and we ensure all are sustainable and grown from farmed lumber and not the wild. This is something we are most passionate about to ensure we work within the community of nature. Our wood is kiln dried and we apply no paints, dye, or any form of chemical other than safe wood glue and a linseed oil or beeswax finish.

 

 

 

 

We would LOVE to be able to call these toys. But they are not toys and not meant for little kids. We are not yet at that level to afford testing to comply with international safety standards. It most definitely is our goal and extremely high on our list but we have to start out taking baby steps before we can run, and we hope you can appreciate this.

Risks and challenges

Our Top Dogwood collection is awaiting a new home and ready to go. Unless there is an extremely popular variety that overshadows the rest or demand is greater than expected, we should have everything ready by the time this campaign is over.
We are committed to adhering to our timeline and have given ourselves extra time.
