I love to take a simple block of wood and discover what beautiful thing can be made out of it. As layers get peeled back, the grain becomes more exposed giving view of the beautiful natural grain that becomes the center of attention. I just love to use God's creation as the focal point of my art. I love to share this with you through the useful things that I make with this beautiful wood.

Wood Grain Is My Palette

I have been working with wood in one format or another since I was a child and my Grandfather sold me my first whittling knife (for $0.50 because it was bad luck to give someone a knife) and taught me how to whittle a propeller. I think I was probably 10 years old, maybe younger. I began making boxes, model airplanes and furniture all from wood. This hobby became a passion through my teen years and as an adult, I continue to hone my craft. I discovered wood turning in my youth, but did not have access to a lathe until I was able to finally purchase my own. I love turning wood on the lathe.

My focus as an artist has been making beautiful wooden items that are meant to be used every day. My art is not meant to be just looked at, sitting on a shelf collecting dust. It is meant to be touched, fondled, handled and used. We use things every day, they might as well be beautiful too. Wood satisfies this, utility and beauty. I love to take a piece of wood and reveal the natural beauty that God created with the grain. I can not improve on that, I can only shape it to let the natural wood grain show through.

Each piece is hand shaped by me. That in itself makes each one unique but because the grain of every piece of wood is different, just like our finger prints, every piece has an even more dramatic uniqueness.

I love to collaborate with my customers making very special pieces that are individually designed with the specific customers desires. This has become a specialty of my shop.

My desire is to offer very high quality products that satisfy one's shared love of wood. I will not ship anything that I would not like to keep and use myself. I want to be known for high quality, fast service, and satisfied customers, to the extreme in every case!

    I have been fascinated by wood since I was a child. Everywhere I go, I am drawn to anything wooden. I just love to look at the intricacies of the wood grain in each piece. Every piece is different. Wood grain itself has become my palette.

Thank you for visiting my "store". I really do appreciate your time and interest in my products. Everything that I sell is handmade by me in my small shop in Wake Forest North Carolina. My goal is to have beautiful, high quality, useful items that are made of wood and by my hands alone. While I am making a wooden project, I try to imagine who will use the item and take great joy in the pleasure that I imagine the user will have. Thank you!

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on several legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We work directly with you to determine your exact desires for custom and personalized orders. Once we reach agreement on the full scope of the order, a custom order will be created. The custom order must be paid before any materials or work will begin.

Sizing details

We add the size, colors, and shape description to each listing. Photos are of the actual item as each are made one at a time and each are unique.

Care instructions

Wood items are durable, but should never be submersed in water, or put in dishwasher. This will damage the item. Special care instructions are added where necessary on individual listings.

Wholesale availability

We do sell some items wholesale, and welcome opportunities for wholesale distribution.

Custom orders are a specialty

individual listings are difficult to customize, because the listing is the actual item. But the item can be used as reference in creating a custom order that has design features exactly to your desire. about 25% of our sales are custom orders. We are good at it, and our customer are satisfied.
