About

We enjoy making functional heirloom quality pieces.

I and Dave come up with an idea and Dave will prepare it for me, or I will just run with an idea. We also work with a retail store near here that also provides me with pieces that I carve or carve and paint on.
Dave just comes up with ideas for his dulcimers and mandolins and I will collaborate with him to help him carry his pieces through.
Bottom line is that we both love all that is natural be it wildlife, wood, a beautiful sunset or sunrise, or a happy smiling face. Create and share, that is important to us.

    Years of observing and appreciating things outside has resulted in my carved birds and wildlife art. I love wood and that is my favored medium. I f I am not in my shop I am out there gathering new ideas.

    Maker, Creator

    I have worked with wood for over 50 yrs as a carpenter. I love the outdoors and it has influenced what I build. I like to incorporate what I see into my work. I build the Dulcimers and Psalterys and try to make the art on them match the instrument.
