    I bought this most beautiful urn as a last resting place for my beloved husband. So few things bring comfort at such a heartbreaking time, but this is one of them. I'm so grateful to Monte for making the purchase and shipping easy for me.

    Shipped super quick and what a bowl! The redwood grain is gorgeous with A++ for the quality finish. Thank you so much!

    I purchased this for my father in law's funeral. My mother in law is from California and the two of them met at Disneyland.

    Monte was quick to respond to my questions. I paid for two day shipping. Monte mailed it Saturday and it arrived 3,000 miles later Monday afternoon.

    The urn arrived in perfect condition. The redwood is beautiful... a bright spot in an otherwise sad time.

    I would highly recommend Monte!

    I had been searching in vain for a redwood urn for several weeks and sighed a sigh of relief when I found Monte’s shop. Not only is he able to master this tricky wood but he provides exceptional service with fast response time and shipping. I’m very grateful. Thanks, Monte!

Welcome to my shop. I enjoy working with wood. For me it a pastime with a side benefit. I like to use wood that is local to me here in northern coastal California and southern Oregon. Most turned items get designed while it is turning on the lathe . Pieces lend them to certain shapes that come best out while chips are coming off. For that reason, no two pieces are exactly alike. Handcrafted means unique. I strive for quality and am learning more on each piece that I do.
