About

He loves to make things!

I love history. There is nothing more fun than a full dumpster and an empty truck or an old piece of wood. I am so lucky to have a new shop set up for woodworking and metal crafting. I enjoy fabulous support from my family in moving from the Driftless region of Wisconsin to Tucson, Arizona and now back to the Driftless Area.

I have been building and remodeling homes and furnishings professionally for 40 years. During that time I also got a degree in theater design, helped raise two little boys (now 27 and 30) and am now working on raising two girls with my wife in Viroqua. In my theater work and in supporting local community theater, I have designed and built mushrooms for caterpillars, oak trees for swinging in, made Cinderella's carriage appear out of fog and made Klansmen vanish, elevators and porches that rain and all manner of stage scenery. Creating things of beauty and intrigue through theater work inspired me to hang up my general contractor's hat and open up a shop where I get to make whimsical yet practical pieces.

I am thrilled to be creating my own original works of art and function, and hope that my creations find their way to new homes and businesses through Etsy.

I welcome requests for custom orders and look forward to crafting just the right piece for you!

Hey it's recycled!
Much of our work is constructed with used or organic materials. Some of our wood is as old as the US of A. We enjoy the natural imperfections that are inherent in them and hope you do too. Some pieces have been re-manufactured by us but be aware that there will be signs of wear and tear, dents, nicks, color variations, scratches and other signs of imperfection. It is impossible to completely reveal all of these "flaws" on-line and hope you enjoy the serendipity of discovering then yourself. If you are not pleased with your purchase please return it withing 10 days for a full refund.

Shipping big stuff
If we can use one of the above carriers we will. However some things are just too big and need to go freight. In that case we will make a crate for it and ship with a freight company that is familiar with your area. We will need your phone number so they can call you to arrange the delivery. Unless you have a forklift handy, plan on having help to get it off the truck and in the house. It is the rare truck driver who will be able to help unload past his/her tailgate.

Frequently asked questions
What size is the top?

Console table tops come any length up to 7' long. These are cut right off the logs so the widths vary. Each piece will have a variation of an inch or more in depth. Happy to do Extra wide or Extra narrow, Use the Click the "Ask a Question" box above first for pricing and availability.

Are Longer tables available?

Yes but we should talk about it first. Stock is limited so convo your needs and I will investigate. I can make tables up to 8' 11"long but the shipping cost will be different so please include your zip code when emailing us. Click the "Ask a Question" box above to contact us.

Wholesale availability

Not really. I have a limited number of pieces on consignment at local galleries. I can't really do high volume production. I do work with designers at a trade discount, please convo.

Can I get a taller table?

Yes. As the tables get taller we increase the the structure under the table. We offer several different heavier leg options here:

Custom and personalized orders

You bet. Message us through Etsy or call me at 608-606-2175, I am in the central time zone.

How much does shipping cost?

To simplify I have tried to include a standard charge of $76 for shipping and handling. Some items just don't conform to this simplification. Click the "Ask a Question" box above and I'll find out for you. I will need your zip or postal code and the size of the item you are inquiring about.

Can I get a rush order?

To be fair to my valued clients, I make these tables in the the order that they are purchased and can't accommodate rush orders. I sometimes have a few tables in stock and ready to ship. Message for availability.
