This was perfect. I needed the item as a rush and it was completed with not even a moments hesitation. I highly suggest getting one of these memorial books. Thanks!
Wooden Pleasures- the Back Story
For my sixth wedding anniversary I began searching the web for a gift for my wife. The theme for a sixth anniversary gift is either the traditional iron or the contemporary wood. Not getting anywhere browsing those wedding anniversary websites for ideas got me to think about what my wife likes to do. I knew she liked scrapbooking. But my problem was that scrapbooks aren’t really made from iron or wood. So I searched the web for a wood scrapbook. The only one I could find that I really liked wound up being way too expensive at $150 for a simple hardwood book. So I decided that it would be extra thoughtful and make a scrapbook myself. I also wanted to add a little bit of flare to the book and use my router that I recently had purchased. So I decided to do an inlay. After my wife posted the book on Facebook and got lots of people responding that loved it, I thought that I should make some for people that scrapbook for Christmas. I chose to make the inlays be what each person collected and do some wood burning as well or instead of an inlay. For my mom it was bears, for my grandma-in-law it was lighthouses, for my step-mother-in-law it was tweety bird, for my mother-in-law it was a pegasus, for my sister it was a penguin and for my aunt-in-law I decided to make a “memories” book with hearts. Also for Christmas gifts I wanted to give some of the guys a handmade gift. I chose to give the chefs of my wife’s family a cutting board with different designs.
Now I am broadening my horizons by offering these one of a kind keepsakes to you! All of my products are made with natural colored wood… not painted so that the beauty of the wood can shine through. I can make you a custom wood burn and/or a custom inlay of your choice.
My Back, Back Story:
When I was growing up I spent a lot of my time at my Aunt and Uncles house. My aunt was an artist and my uncle a craftsman that built luxurious homes. All my time at their houses was spent admiring their work and questioning how everything was made. Finally when I turned 14 I started working for my uncle learning how to build homes and learning the basics of woodworking since he also made custom cabinetry, jewelry boxes, and furniture items. Since then I have gone through college and got a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. While going to college I spent my free time building houses. After college I went to work designing civil construction projects and in my free time have been doing woodworking as well as remodeling my house and my mother’s house.
Owner, Woodworker, Creator
I love woodworking and to create new things. Been officially doing that for 2.5 years, but really all my life. I also love home brewing as well-but haven't found a way to sell that yet. That love did inspire my #1 seller the Beer Book though!

I now also offer International shipping on most of my items. International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of Canada may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions.

Additional policies and FAQs
►Custom Orders VS. One-of-a Kind Orders:
As I do not charge additional fees for creating a custom item (which takes longer than a ready-made piece due to discussions, photo approval etc.), I reserve the right to reproduce and use photographs of any piece that I make. If you desire a completely one-of-a-kind piece, please convo me and we can agree on a price and terms.
I reserve the right to edit or change these policies at any time.
