I contacted this shop with a last minute gift idea. She only had 1 of what I needed listed. She said she would be able to get the material and be able to fill my whole order (3 pens total) and she did just that! She is very polite and very accomodating! I will gladly be ordering from her again because I love the pens so much!! Great customer service and great products!

About

Beauty in wood, released to your hand

Since graduating college, I’ve been a receptionist, wildlife tour guide, call center minion, newspaper copy editor, graphic designer and, most recently, bookseller. Woodturning has kept my sanity through most of it all, starting first as a hobby and growing through the years until it has become my passion, as well as my addiction.

There is something very sensuous about holding a beautifully finished object of wood. It has depth and warmth. It can be both solid and delicate. There is an attraction that touches the heart as your fingers touch the wood. My desire is to release the beauty within the seemingly ordinary. It’s amazing what you can find inside a few scraps hanging around the garage.

If it’s round, I can probably make it. Some of the items I can fashion include desk accessories (pens, pencils, letter openers, magnifiers and the like), salt & pepper mills, soft-tipped styluses for touch-screen technology, vases, canes, toys, goblets, plumb bobbles, useful boxes, bottle openers and bottle stoppers, shaving kits, seam rippers, pen lights, light pulls, and of course, bowls. It is a delight for me to take a customer’s request and make it come to life; special orders make me happy!

I’ll leave woodworking and furniture making to those whose talents lie in that direction.

Nature is the true artist here, I just find the allure and make it accessible. It’s all about transformation through work and loving devotion.

    Woodturning became my passion over 15 years ago when a friend showed me some basic turning techniques. I adore the warmth and beauty that is the essence of lovingly shaped wood. I'm delighted when my customers love their purchases as much as I do.
