Retired Woodworker Creates Fully-Functional Furniture That ‘Looks’ Broken

These days, furniture design is more than just functionality. Wooden furniture, especially, gives a modern and colonial look for your house. Any woodworker can build a plain old wardrobe but it takes serious skill to create one that stands out from the rest. In fact, a fantastic approach to furniture design can be as appealing as those with sophisticated styles. And the crafts of Henk Verhoeff, a woodworker from New Zealand, are definitely that.

Henk has been crafting wooden pieces for 53 years, first as a professional and now as a retiree. Yet, it was only after Henk’s daughter shared her father’s works to Facebook that people instantly began to fall in love with them. And the one-of-a-kind furniture creations eventually went viral.

Through his amazing woodworking projects, this craftsman brings cartoons to life. He makes his pieces without any detailed construction plans, but he is very careful in making every detail. He is especially careful with the accuracy of the corners, and in the end, all the parts are covered with a protective varnish. Though it has giant cracks, all of the pieces are completely functional. This makes their “broken” construction even more incredible, as it shows that fun and function can go hand-in-hand.

It’s clear that the medium is his passion and a way to express his creativity. And now with more time on his hands, he’s able to produce whatever his imagination comes up with. This has led him to do things like add lighting, which gives his dressers the appearance that they have been struck by lightning. Thus, scroll down in order to see the gallery below!
