The Turtle Box, jewelry box, or keep sake box... THey sell quick, and I am currently knee deep in a pile of unfinished ones, any I have listed are sold, but I can quickly get some finished, should orders arise... I have so many items I make, and only so much time to get them all made, and listed, not to mention shipped, and cataloged...each order takes a week to two weeks to get finished, and sent out, but I can work faster with good communication...made from cured pine wood...around the 12" size... saw cut details...This is a result of years of research and development for me. I know it may not look like much , but to develop a set up in my small shop, where I can make these efficiently, and still maintain quality took a lot of these getting broken, as the saw caught them, and flung them across the room. Now, fortunately, we only have a few break loose and take flight, on very rare occasion ... I try to keep an on going inventory of these in a few sizes at all times. Larger ones available upon request. This is a unique spin on a traditional turtle sculpture, it has a nicely hollowed shell, and bowl shaped body... So when you lift the shell it is useable space, other wise taken up by unusable wood. I like items with purpose, and function in my own life... Each one is it's own animal, completely unique from the others, some made from different types of wood, funky looking wood such as burls, what ever I have in my pile out back, and feel like using that day, for the most part...
Colors: the picture at the end of the green turtle is for sample only. I have done them in the past but had many requests, and more sales from the natural colored ones.i do them in a variety of colors, and as the inventory increases, I have a few to play with. For now I have natural, these are pictures of the actual item up for sale. I can paint any of the naturals to any color desired upon request.
TREATMENTS: THese pieces are treated with a food safe salad bowl, butcher block formula, I was able to find a good source for this product.
WOOD SOURCE: The wood is discarded, or unwanted wood I harvest from tree company and lumber company "bone yards". I process and slow cure the stock logs in house, then I mill the logs into cant wood, an carving blocks, so nothing goes to waste.
IN THE SHOP: The saw cutting chains are lubricated with 100% edible, and natural Canola oil, so all my saw dust can be reused for animal bedding, or for compost material. The mix of saw dust, chips, shavings, and chunks of cut off wood are first screened and sorted by size, then used to fire a specially built out door furnace/ wood drying room, as well as provide heat for my shop. The wood is mostly air dried, regular stock is a year or more of air, slow heat process dried...
A PERSONAL TOUCH BY REQUEST:You may request small engravings in these to personalize them, such as flowers, hearts, or simple phrases to make the gift extra special, or so it fits in your home and life style perfectly..... consultations and photos for personalizations can be made over email, before the item is actually bought. Engraving details may slow delivery a day or two, just so we make sure everything is right.Thank you for hearing my story!
