So cute and well made! Love the little touches of this Patriotic soldier. Have ordered many times before from this talented artist and will continue to order. I am always pleased.

I am so in love with your work! I work with wood and I appreciate the sanding & the smooth edges. I received this today and I built a stand for it so I have a little table. I'm sitting this on my covered porch to enjoy on our summer evenings... Thank you for your craftsmanship!

About

Where new is old and old is new

We find inspiration just about anywhere - an old weathered chunk of wood, a beat up stool at a yard sale, or a box of old knobs. Even an old bug trail in a piece of wood has a story to tell - it's up to us to find it. Most of our creations are not considered "done" until they look older than us. Our style is a bit rustic, a bit primitive, with a little folk art mixed in.

In any given day, you'll find Tim building a table with natural, live edge wood in his new workshop. If you hear footsteps above him, it's Ellyn puttering around in her 2nd story studio sculpting a Santa or coming up with a new clothespin folk ornament.
