Last week's post wrapped up the Performers Theme with a bang, featuring Steam Powered Giraffe.

So this week we are starting a whole new theme!  This month's theme will be Furniture.  And to start us off right, I present Wild Hare Woodworks in the SCA category.​

What Is It:

There are a couple of different types of furniture that an SCA person might like - Medieval reproduction furniture for their homes, or furniture that can be used in their encampments during events.  

Wild Hare Woodworks specializes in the second type, producing pieces that are both lovely and functional.

Show Me:

Anyone who has attended any large camping events such as Pennsic, knows that the comfort and convenience of your encampment can make a huge difference in your enjoyment of the event.

Attractive Medieval-style chairs that you don't have to hide under a cloth (and that don't fall apart when you sit in them) really add to the atmosphere (and your comfort).  As do sturdy tables that don't have to be covered.

The more modern furniture and equipment you can replace, the more your encampment starts to truly feel like the traveling encampment of a Medieval noble.  That's what we all aspire to, right?

And if said furniture can be folded up for easy transportation, all the better.   These tables, chairs, and the cooler box, all break down.  They even offer a big wooden trash can for your encampment that also breaks down  (Editor's Note: take it from me - you definitely want a big, available trash can in your encampment.  Otherwise, things quickly get, well.... trashy.  All the better if you don't have to hide it.).

Sum Up:

I've done a fair amount of SCA camping in my day, including Great Western War, Estrella, and Pennsic.  I've done it with and without the furniture.  And I firmly believe that the bit of extra work to transport and set up furniture is completely offset by the increased enjoyment of your camping experience.  Totally worth it.  

Take a look at Wild Hare Woodworks if you'd like to improve your SCA camping experience.​  In addition to their standard offerings, they do some beautiful custom work as well.
