My Story
Paddles, Vinyl Decals/Signs, Lexan, household products and furniture were not even on my radar when I first began to discover the need. However, once I did discover them, the opportunity to combine form and function into my own creations that bring such enjoyment to others was too much to resist.

I get an enormous amount of joy from creating beautiful things, initially there is huge excitement, and eventually the lovely glow of satisfaction and contentment that the creative process brings… Then I get bored and start all over again with another project! My whole process of visualizing and creating from making a paddle to designing a new piece of furniture or a sign for a customer. This website is a way of sharing my passion for creating beautiful things.
I hope you enjoy it. ~ Master Control

I have been woodworking since high school. Wood was something that came from the Home Depot, and got used to make my home, tables, and was used to generate heat in my fireplace during winter. Then one day after I was trained, I had a need. I needed a paddle, and what I seen at stores, were weak and ill-built out of pine. And then all kinds of types of wood spoke to me differently.

I started in a small shed and the only problem was I didn’t actually know anything about how to make outstanding wooden furniture. I bough some cheap tools, small saws, and soon realized I had a lot to learn, and that cheap rusty old tools do not a masterpiece make. At first, I created a few pieces of furniture, I got told by others I was really a outstanding craftsman. Whilst pondering all this new found knowledge, so I pulled it out and recreated it better. I showed it to a sub or two, and it was a sensation.

Is I created a few pieces of furniture, I got told by others I was really a outstanding craftsman. Whilst pondering all this new found knowledge, I had remember making my own personal paddle, so I pulled it out and recreated it better. I showed it to a person or two, and it was a sensation.

Creation of my shop
While I was in the shed, I realized I had poor tools and a lack of space. I had a large carport, so I had my shop built where it was, bricked in, HVAC added, dust control system put in and purchased the stuff I needed to make quality wood and leather products.

Present day
After losing my an outstanding job, I realized woodworking remains my hobby and my passion in life, and I was asked to use my woodworking skills to create a few paddles. I was astounded that so many would want it created but it was an order, and it took off, so I started a ETSY account to sell paddles. I started with only a few, then it grew. I have been doing research on make more high level designs and have a head full of ideas for new and different styles and started designing them for future products.

As well I am making furniture, and household items. A lot of the furniture is a whole lot more complex and allows me to be creative. I don’t release a product until I can say I would buy this if I wanted one.

Birth of Vinyl Lettering & Signs Services
As designs began to grow, and customers made requests, the the mother of necessity was to add a new division focused on making Vinyl Lettering and Signs. It went well with my woodworking, and my creativity, since I love creating new things.

Frequently asked questions
What finish do you use on paddles?

All of my paddles are sanded to a very smooth surface and then finished with Danish oil, which is a combination of oils to make it look good and some polyurethane added for toughness. I give all paddles at least three finish coats, with some receiving several more to enhance their look and feel. Some paddles are also given a wax coat depending on the type of wood.

I occasionally use pure tung oil as a finish, which is a slow drying but relatively hard oil finish, which gives a matt finish.

A small number of paddles have received a polyurethane varnish finish, but consensus is varnish doesn’t look nearly as attractive as an oil finish, and most people consider the added protection provided by varnish as unnecessary for a paddle.

Do you have a website?

Yes - https://mastercontrolswoodshop.com

Care instructions

Can I request a modification to a product design to meet my needs

Yes, but it will probably be converted to a "CUSTOM ORDER" because it would be outside of our normal production procedure and require more time/materials to re-design.

Are all of your slappers made of real leather?

Yes, unless we specify differently on our product listings that it is a different material. We use only Italian Leather because of the highest quality. We don't do pleather, re-constituted or Faux.

How do you package your items for shipping? What's on the box?

Very Discreetly Due to the Nature of our Adult Products. We use bubble wrap or plain brown recycled paper to wrap your product. We ship in a unbranded boxes or USPS box. It will have "Master Controls Woodshop & Signs" labeled on it.
