For those working in the carpentry industry, the term 'The Dutchman' would hold particular meaning. It refers to a wood patch or filler used to repair damaged or missing areas in a wooden product. In this case, the wooden joint has been repurposed into a wall-mounted organizer, which has been appropriately dubbed The Dutchman.

Designed by North Carolina-based The Wood Studio, The Dutchman is made up of a long ledge that secures to the wall and a number of 'dutchman' pieces that slot into the ledge. These individual wedges have been notched in order to better hold objects such as keys and smartphones. A wooden stick can also fit into these notches to provide a longer shelf for books and more.
