About SheckelsCreations

On Etsy since 2009

You may have noticed that my shop, Sheckels Creations, opened in 2009. At that time, I was making and selling little photo sculptures of exotic animals like penguins, elephant seals, blue-footed boobies, etc. I stopped selling those after about a year and my store has been dormant now for almost 10 years.
Recently, I restarted my passion which is wood turning and reopened the store. Twenty years ago, planning for this day, I began collecting wood from cut trees left along the curb that otherwise would be picked up as fire wood. If the tree was Oak, Walnut, Cherry, Sycamore, Maple and some other specialty hardwood, I would take a few pieces home, cut them up into good size turning blocks, paraffin the ends and put them in my basement under a tarp. Now after very slow drying, the wood is more than ready to be worked. Almost as hard a rock, very stable and with very few checks, they are making excellent turning blocks. Message me if you have any questions about the wood bowls that are listed on my store now. Thanks. Tom Sheckels
