Phil Jackson's Profile

About

I started NuptialNotions.com (formally Rivalry Time) after seeing the success my wife was having on Etsy. (TaraJacksonJewelry.etsy.com). So I decided to put something up.... It sold. Then another. Then I started getting special requests. So, I decided to make it a business.
By day, I'm an Auditor with the best Airline in the world. By night and weekends, I love staying busy making new creations and making what people want. If you have anything that would look good in wood, please let me know.

The Process (What makes it so valuable):
I start all of my pieces from a solid piece of wood. For most pieces, I try to select wood that has character like lines, knots etc. This is what makes each piece unique. Then, I draw a traced image of the final piece. I hand cut that trace, which is sometimes challenging given the intricacy of some of the designs. Once cut, I sand each piece until it is ready to take stain or paint. I apply the stain in multiple sessions to reach the best color. For the antiqued items, I use a special process for making the shabby chic distressed look. The final stage is a multiple step process to clear coat the piece which makes the beautiful gloss finish for some or a light gloss finish for others.

It does take time to make each piece but in the end, it is worth selling a quality product that can be enjoyed for years to come. If you have anything that you would like made, please let me know and I can give you options and quote a price....no obligations.
