Beautiful addition to my backyard! Quality craftsmanship! I will be ordering more in the future. Shipping was delayed--I received these about 3 weeks past the expected shipping date, however, Well worth the wait. Seller was very prompt with communication as well!
Handmade treasures custom made for the home in wood or metal
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University and a Master's in Computer Science and worked for technology manufacturers NCR Corporation, National Semiconductor, and Landis & Gyr Corporation with a variety of manufacturing related jobs. I then joined Caterpillar Inc. with the task of applying technology to the manufacturing floor. Finally I joined Dynamic Corporation with responsibility for engineering and product design, quality assurance, and facility maintenance and assumed a minority share ownership in the company before being acquired. I have taught technology courses at Purdue University and had an active technology consulting practice for several years.
After early retirement, I began working with metalcrafting and welding to create original designs for the home and garden applications. At the same time, I began learning and working with wood in various craft applications, again designing original crafts for unique home applications. I have gradually been able to increase the scope of my equipment and skills by constantly expanding and learning as much as I can about the crafts.
I make almost all of the components in my designs. The only purchased component that I use in some of the cupcake and cake stands are the turned spindle feet, some of the turned center spindles, and top finials. They are made by Woodworks Ltd., out of Haltom City, Texas.
I continually am looking for new opportunities to design and create new designs that allow me to learn new skills for my Etsy customers. After more than two years and 250 shipments, I truly enjoy corresponding with each of my special friends.
