Note from shop owner Thank you for stopping by. We are currently taking a short break. We have our school house open this weekend. It will be several weeks before I can restock Etsy again. I am no longer doing custom orders but will be restocking rounds for customization. Message me if you have any questions and I will reply as soon as I can!

Thank you-

About

Skrap Work is preserving bits of the past so that it can be enjoyed again. We take pride in everything we save and create!

Hello, my name is Dawn and I am the maker and creator of Skrap Work!! I joined my dad and his salvage business 3 years ago in 2014. When I'm not salvaging with my dad I'm in the shop creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces of Skrap Work. My dad has taught me a great deal about the history of the wood and how to use lots of power tools. Prior to this leap of faith I was a dental assistant for 14 years. I always loved the worn beautiful wood my dad saved and was intrigued by the natural beauty of it. I have enjoyed using the wood in my creations and making all the natural colors and patina come together to be enjoyed again. When it all comes together it makes me smile. At the end of the day I go home and enjoy my 4 kids, husband and dog and the day feels complete. I hope you enjoy Skrap Work as much as I do creating it!
