When asked about his style, Henk told Bored Panda: “I describe my style of furniture as broken and weird. I like making weird furniture, something that you don’t see in a shop.”

And while one could think that he seeks inspiration from fairy tales, Henk says that all of his creations come solely from his “twisted brain.”

Just as you can guess from their appearance, these dressers aren’t easy to make. However, Henk is a master of this craft.

“It’s hard to say how long each piece takes me. It’s unset times during the week and it could easily be 80-100 hours.

Sometimes details or angles don’t work and I have to start again. I use recycled New Zealand pine, mostly, but if I can get my hands on some Rimu, I will also use that.”

Before he retired, Henk was a joiner/cabinet maker. “I have been woodworking for 53 years. Now it is just my hobby and passion,” he says.

Despite many people taking interest in buying these magical-looking dressers, Henk says that, as of now, they aren’t for sale.

“I started creating them for the pure love of it without the intention of selling them. But when I run out of space, there will be an eBay auction or two. Everything is for sale… except for my wife,” he said jokingly.

For now, the dressers are decorating Henk’s home.

Both Linda and her father didn’t expect so much attention, but it’s clear that his furniture is worth all of the praises.
