About

Made At The Lake

“You have it made,” my friend always said since I lived on a lake. Hence the name, Made At The Lake. My father was a logger who went on to build a sawmill, so I’ve always been around wood. Many times I’ve made the things I needed, whether it be a lamp or a house.

I started by making custom picture frames while I lived in Texas. I learned about etsy.com and started making tea light holders out of birch. I took the frames a step further and started add ing a few birch branches and sticks. My beginning inspiration came when I was hauling branches from a dead birch tree to the brush pile. I saw a branch lying on the ground; it was a perfect fan shape. I said to myself, “I’m going to frame that in three panels” and the Birch Branch Triptych was born. Popularity has grown over the last 2-1/2 years to the point that I’ve been able to make Made At The Lake my main business.

A Birch Branch Triptych from Made At The Lake hangs above a fireplace. Submitted photo. A Birch Branch Triptych from Made At The Lake hangs above a fireplace. Submitted photo. Aside from the triptychs, I also make other items using birch. North woods-themed weddings using birch are very popular. Sometimes people are looking for something to cover a large wall and when they run across one of my pieces they are amazed. I am the only one making these and have copyright protection.

I harvest birch from trees that are dying. The trees die from the top down so as they rot and branches start to fall, it’s time to cut them down and harvest the wood and bark. I never harvest branches or bark from a healthy tree.

With my extensive woodworking skills, I offer precise corners with very little putty. The frames are stained to match a customer’s interior Decor. The branches are cut to fit precisely and to look as if they flow from one frame to the next. I also include hangers on the top and wall protectors on the bottom of each piece and include instructions for hanging.

Each of my pieces is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art and a certificate of authenticity is included. I work with a customer to give them a piece they will enjoy for many years.

By partnering the customer's creativity with my own, the options are endless and timeless. I love working with my customers from start to finish on a project. I believe in attention to detail, from the materials I harvest to the packing of the shipment. When I’m not in my shop, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my dog and love to fish.

Some say," It can't be done." I say, "I can do it, but it will take some doin'."
