About

We are The Wood Women

The Wood Women started when my friend’s son Emmett called us “a couple of old wood women”. After the initial thought “I am not old!,” we decided we liked the name. We are a couple of Wood Women. We love making things out of wood. We love hiking in the woods. We enjoy the beauty of wood and the woods. The name made perfect sense. We decided we would be The Wood Women.

We build tables, stools, swings, rockers, jewelry boxes, games and nick-nacks. We carve ornaments and walking sticks. But the absolute favorite thing we do is turn wood on a lathe. We make bottle stoppers, kaleidoscopes, bowls, mason jar lids and candle sticks.

Our wood comes from the woods. It is not uncommon to see us dragging a downed tree limb out of the woods after a hiking expedition. Our best finds come from the area alongside the river. You never know what kind of tree you will find washed to the side after a storm. We also have friends who are more than happy to let us clean up the fallen trees.

From time to time, we are commissioned to turn a bottle stopper out of an exotic wood. In that situation we do our exploring online to find the best supplier.

Emmett was right. We are The Wood Women. We love creating art as we enhance the natural beauty of wood.
