Shipping was fast. Seller was very easy to work with. The bowl is stunning and has a great feel in the hands. I am looking forward to having this etsy artist create a custom piece!


For the love of wood...

My love for wood began in my early twenties when I landed a job at a local cabinet shop. I started out sweeping and sanding then progressed into building and installing. It wasn't until I moved to McCall Idaho and started exploring the vast woodlands, that my respect and true appreciation for these magnificent organisms began. A few winters back I stumbled upon a fallen Aspen tree while snowshoeing. It was massive! I knew right away that this tree was going to be one of my first attempts at hand carving some drums, djembes to be exact. I grew up playing the djembe and always wanted to carve one. Using only hand tools, I managed to carve out four djembes from that one Aspen. I took me most of the summer carving at my own leisure to complete. The following Christmas I gave each of my siblings a drum, all carved from the same tree! That old Aspen has played an important roll in my life and still teaches me lessons to this day.
Growing up in the Santa Barbara area its easy to get accustom to the seventy five degree weather year round. However, it does get old after awhile especially if you love the snow. So a decision was made, and some how I ended up in McCall Idaho. A small sleepy ski resort town tucked away high up in mountains, surrounded by lush pine forests. I quickly got a job at one of the few cabinet shops in town, only to be laid off after two years, due to a struggling economy. Snowboarding being one of my favorite pastimes, it seemed only natural to start working at the ski resort. The pay might not have been all that great, but I spent the next three winters there creating lifelong memories, far more valuable than gold. Then in the summer of 2012 I received news that my family was about to purchase a 50 acre organic avocado ranch in the Santa Barbara area. What had always been nothing more than a mere pipe-dream, was all of a sudden quickly becoming reality! Thanks to my brother-in-law who lined up the investor and made all of this happen, it was soon time for me to head back to my old stomping grounds of southern California. The chaos of starting a family business had begun. After a year of never ending work days, the gears of this operation are slowly starting to turn. In the wake of it all I find myself peering into a tiny wood shop beckoning me to create...
