KeenWood's Shop Announcement

The items I create are done so on a wood lathe, crafted only with high quality materials. This is a hobby that has turned into a passion for promoting extremely high quality craftsmanship. The mechanisms I use, along with the hardware, are of the finest quality. The woods are of a vast variety, ranging from the common to exotic and rare. My goal is to bring out the grain in its natural state. My works go through a stringent process of sanding and polishing, using different grades of sandpaper and assorted chemicals to bring out a natural sheen that only improves with age and use. The hardware is usually chrome, black enamel, gun metal, rhodium, satin gold or silver, copper, or 24kt gold. These are made specifically for use in high end quality hand crafted items.

I did not set out to start a business. I am a disabled American veteran, forced into retirement because of my disability. Therefore, I am not able, nor do I have any other longings for another profession. The primary purpose in offering my work is to share the craftsmanship of professionally made items that can be used with pride, and then passed on to future generations. Therefore, everything I make is intended to be a custom made project. Each is a one-of-a-kind instrument. There is not another like it anywhere. Having been hand turned by me on a lathe, with a creative eye toward the creation of a piece of art that reflects my passion for woodwork, these items are sure to bring enjoyment and pride to the discriminating in taste. The process I use is not fast. Each item requires days to create and finish. There is no automation here. My work is handcrafted with pride of workmanship. Thus, you can buy with confidence, knowing that you are getting the highest quality that individual craftsmanship can produce.
