I absolutely adore this mirror. Beth worked tirelessly with me to find the right type of wood and get the mirror to just the right size. She was so friendly and helpful - I cannot recommend her shop enough!

About

To me wood holds magic within it!

I have been carving for over 15 years but the story goes back much further. I have always loved wood. As a little kid, I would walk into a store that had items made of wood and I couldn't keep my hands off of them. The grain, the smoothness, the finish, the smell...I was always at home with wood. I think in some former life, I must have had some job that involved creating with wood.
Primarily self taught, I love the sound of a sharp gouge whistling through a piece of wood. The way a gouge responds to the slightest amount of pressure, the way the grain of a piece of wood reacts to my efforts, the surprises that can be enclosed in one single piece of wood--all of these things and more are never tiring. They never get old. Carving wood is my passion. When I am not carving, I am often thinking about a future project, or mentally working out a problem with a present piece, or figuring out how to do a technique in a different way to create something new. Sometimes a mistake leads to a real understanding and a door opens on a entirely new project. I could carve for 100 years and never get tired of it or run out of ideas.
Take a look around my shop and hopefully you will see something you enjoy. I am always open to new ideas if you have an idea of something you want carved. Besides selling on Etsy, I also have some items on display and for sale at a oceanside gallery in Camden, Maine called Ducktrap Bay Trading Company.

Welcome to my shop! I love carving and having others enjoy my work as well! Some of you may know my work from a previous Etsy shop I used to have called Boxes by Beth. My work is always evolving and creating is an on-going process. Wood is such an enjoyable warm medium from which to create imaginative pieces!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
You can pay using any of the methods available to you on Etsy. If I do not receive payment within 3 days of within the time an item is ordered, I will assume you no longer want it and will re-list it for someone else to purchase. Please convo me if there is a problem. Communication is key and I can be flexible.
Shipping
I most often ship USPS. For international buyers, please contact me by convo or email (darnley@midmaine.com) and I will get a quote of the shipping costs of sending your purchase to you and let you know. I am not trying to make money from shipping and will charge you the international rate that is quoted. I also try to use as many recycled products in shipping as possible in order to be gentle on the environment. I ship the day I receive the order and payment.

I want you to be happy with what you buy so that you will give me great feedback! If for any reason you are not happy, please let me know. I will do everything I can to remedy the situation. Convo me if there are any problems.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have been carving for over 15 years and have sold many items in craft stores, galleries, etsy, and to individuals. If there is something you would like me to create, please contact me. If it is something that I can do and it can be sold to someone else, you will be under no obligation to purchase it. Feel free to convo me with ideas.
