About ChadEamesWoodWorks

On Etsy since 2016


Over the years, I have turned thousands of objects – from simple bowls and pens, to elaborately carved vessels and other unique forms. Hardly a day passes that I do not spend at least a little time in my workshop turning, sanding, finishing, polishing, or simply contemplating my next piece.

Few people give much thought to woodturning, despite interacting with turned objects every day. For me, it has changed the way I observe the world. I notice individual trees and look at them more closely, wondering what potential beauty lies within. On my lathe, even the most seemingly useless chunk of wood can come alive again.

Constant experimentation makes every item unique, but I always try to impart my own particular style. Each piece of wood that I put on my lathe contains infinite possibilities. As I turn, I simply do whatever the wood “tells” me – I don’t always know what I’m looking for, but I know when I find it. While my mission is to provide objects and artwork of the absolute highest quality, more than anything I just want people to own, use and enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.

Thanks for stopping by my shop, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

    I've been turning wood since 2008, trying to create beautiful pieces of art as well as functional items from trees and wood that would otherwise go to a landfill or burn pit. My style constantly evolves as I try to create unique artwork.

Thank you for checking out my shop! Making cool stuff out of wood is probably my favorite thing to do. I love to take discarded logs and give them a second life as something useful or beautiful. I take great pride in my artwork and I want nothing more than for all of my clients to be 100% satisfied with their purchase. In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with your purchase, I will gladly work with you to resolve the situation.

For maximum protection of myself and you, I ship most items via USPS Priority or Express mail with tracking and insurance. I do offer first class shipping for smaller items. Priority delivery within the US is typically 2-4 days after shipment, unless otherwise indicated by the shipping method you choose at checkout.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

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 a number of 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 the purpose of 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.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

*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.
*Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
*Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

*Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
*Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
*Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. 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.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Chad Eames, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at chadeameswoodworks [!at]
