Khatt Items Totems are preferably made of wood. Just as the traditional totems are. Beams of any type of wood will be good base material. The size of the totem is only limited by the capacity of the cnc tool that will be used to do the machining.
Traditionally, totems depict animal-like creatures. The Khatt Item Totems will deploy typography instead.
Khatt Items has developed a typeface specifically designed for cnc machining: Pyramides neg and pos, respectively to produce debossed (recessed) or embossed (protruding) letters. By selecting different tool bits the depth or height of the characters may vary.
Obviously, totems can be made in all kind of materials in endless variations, but the samples shown are all made of wood.
