About

There is a wide variety of ancient warriors throughout time with each gaining a reputation for their unique approach to battle. Whole societies were created to either destroy an opponent or dominate the lands. Each military discipline impacted the world as a whole, leaving us with a wide variety of legendary Warriors.

As a designer with a more playful flair, this inspired us to create Wooden Warriors. One year of experimentation, development, and encouragement from friends, and a bright, imaginative eight year old named Leo resulted in a multitude of designs that we are totally excited about. We selected six to preview with and present to you today.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION 

Wooden Warriors are at heart, a series of refined premium wood figures depicting epic Warriors throughout time. We use dense hardwoods in various combinations, add complex carving details and inlay wood to create a very elegant and simplistic soldier.

This is a Wooden Warrior of the Prehistoric Era and the first Warrior of our times. He comes with a wood spear and club. 

Japanese Warrior Turn-Arounds

Japanese Warrior comes with two Swords, one placed by magnet in his hand and with a second magnet on his back to hold a second sword. Each figure has a special mechanical device which allows the head to rotate freely. 

Crusader Warriors fought for what they believed in during the Middle Ages and donned the Cross as their symbol. Our Warrior comes with shield and sword with one magnet in the hand and another in his fist. 

The Warrior of West comes with one magnet placed to hold his six shooter and another to hold his rifle.

One of the most successful of all Warriors, the Vikings were seafarers and explorers. Our Viking comes with one magnet placed to hold his mallet and another, his shield.  

Maritime Pirate Warriors who plundered the seas all the way back to the Viking Era come with both sword and cutlass. 

We use only Earth friendly premium hardwoods and wood glue. We use NO paints, dyes, or stains but let the natural wood show through. We may at times use Danish oil or Beeswax to enhance a wood grain. 

All figures use Neodymium Magnets placed in the arms as well as on most weapons. Both arms rotate on posts and the head contains a mechanical devise to allow them to rotate. Each Wooden Warrior or their weapon is not a toy and is Not intended for children.

Hi! I'm Glen, owner and maker at HayWüd. This is a one-man company- I make every single piece by hand with just a few shop tools. This is where we need YOU!  

Because of the detailed work needed in each piece and the limited volume desired for each, we need to raise capital to purchase all the necessary equipment to continue making them by hand. We also would love to roll out a specialty retail presence. This alone is no small feat and your support will enable us to learn from the community and validate our efforts.

I currently work with small hand tools to make each item, but this does not allow me to share outside of family or friends. My goal in this campaign is to raise enough money to purchase tools that will allow me to make limited editions. Your contribution will help me to expand my tools, attend craft shows, & generate an online presence to reach new customers and share my passion with others. Thank you sincerely for your support!

Risks and challenges

Depending on the number of Wooden Warriors, crafting each one by hand might delay shipping for some!
