Wood Thumb gives me a happy reminder that maker’s in San Francisco create more than technology. I’ve never been good with my hands, but really appreciate things that are handmade. Handmade in America, especially in San Francisco is an added benefit.
Wood Thumb uses local wood that is ethically sourced to create beautiful products. One of my favorites is a magnetic bottle opener. A sturdy piece of walnut mounts on the wall, with a bottle opener on top. You let the cap fall but a magnet embedded in the wood catches up to 40 bottle caps.
They also make beautiful greeting cards, wooden sunglasses, ties and more. Every bit of the production is done in their San Francisco studio, located in Soma. They share the space with some other creators as well, including one who makes bike gloves that have turn signals, and another who makes kayaks.
