Some weeks ago Timo Lieben put his headphones on and started a walk. He was listening to Wu-Tang for sure. Later on his walk he arrived at some bavarian forest and heard a really loud bsssss bsss bs sbsss bsssss. Timo was curious about that sound and walked into the deep black forest. There was just that bsssss bsss bs sbsss bsssss and a owl staring at him like “don´t go further my friend” . . . .
There was a tree. Not just a normal tree. Timo looked at it and in the treetop there was a beeyard. A huuuuuuge fucking beeyard. Timo just wanted to run away, but this one was some kind of magic. He looked on his Ipod and everything makes sense. Killa bees on a swarm! Timo was in total trance and went to the bottom of the tree. The bees recognized him as a friend and just let him watch. Some strong wind came up and the tree started shakin. A huge branch fall down on the ground. Timo decided to take this branch with him . . .
At the next day at the Berlinwood factore Timo looked at the branch the whole time. I think this was some kind of “Pinocchio-Effect”. Timo started to work on the branch. He worked 8 hours, 16 hours, 24 hours and fall assleep. At the next day he tought It was all a dream. He used to read Word Up magazine and dreamed about Salt’n’Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine. He started hangin’ pictures on his wall and was looking forward to his very Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl. Timo is a guy who let his tape rock ’til his tape pop.
He woke up and everything was finished. He created the Berlinwood Limited edition forest splitply decks:
And today we will look closer at one of them:
And one More:
Three-hundred and sixty degrees of perfected styles. Like everything what Timo does. Great work, again! While doing fingerboardTV I´ve received a lot of different decks. And even some really awesome and handmade splitply decks. You won´t get a cleaner split somewhere. I can´t imagine how Timo could create something like this. I think even Timo can´t remember the progress. Maybe the bees cutted the wood!? Get one. REALLY try to get one!!! Only 15 decks per color!!! Blackriver-Ramps webshop: Click!
