About

The First Few Years of Woodworking are always filled with bumbling and bleeding hands. I was lucky enough to spend mine at Warren Wilson College building furniture, classical guitars, and other instruments.

I now live in St. Louis where i build furniture and modern lighting, furniture, jewelry, toys, spaces and mobiles. I am proud to use even the smallest off-cuts from these projects to create beautiful spinning tops. The colors you see are natural to the exotic and domestic woods i use, they are never painted or stained. I am inspired by the naturally flawed beauty of wood, so I also do not hide small cracks, sapwood, or other patterns that make each top a one-of-a-kind toy and work of art.

I would love to wholesale to your store,
and would love to make it home for christmas.
