Handmade Rare Exotic Wood Boxes

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    New to Etsy, but not woodworking, I design and build function art. I enjoy rare exotic solid wood such as ebony and holly (I don’t use veneers). While very expensive and rare, they are difficult to work, yet enjoyable woods to work with, the results are worth the challenge. As an architect by education (Texas A&M University), and a musician, I’m inspired by architecture, luthiers and the power of woods that can either appear near grainless, or the grain enhances the design. I don’t mass produce my art and I only make a few at a time before moving onto another concept. My shop is in Cypress, Texas.

Exotic Wood Boxes

I started building furniture in 1972 as a freshman in High School at CyFair HS. I took four years of woodshop and then additional shop classes at North Harris County College (A.A.S. in Drafting and Design) before graduating with a degree in Architecture from Texas A&M University.

For the duration of the CoronaVirus pandemic I have instituted several protocols to minimize any chance of infection being passed along to my customers. I am a one person business operating at my home, not a factory. The very definition of "small business".
- I am the only one who handle the materials and tools. I am not a bricks and mortar business - no people visit.
- All the wood I currently using has been stored in my wood bin for months, if not years.
- Upon shipping i wipe down the piece with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. Surprisingly alcohol has zero effect on my lacquer finish.
