World's Greatest Wood Designs
How did you start your shop?
I have worked with wood in one form or another over for 15 years. When work was slow in my trade as a carpenter , I started to do what I have always loved doing working with. WOOD PRODUCTS. The smell ,the feel, and the ability to create something from a blank slate t is what I enjoy the most, My neighbor told me and my wife about Etsy. I did not want to make any ordinary wood Items. I want to make the worlds greatest wood items. With encuragement from my wife I opened my shop.
Working on new ideas excites me, One day I got a call from my wife at work telling me that our apartment was flooded. We had to spend a month in a motel while the water damage to our apartment was fixed. We decided to go to Michael's Craft Store to find something to keep us busy during the week. Little did I realize at the time that would be the start of my new passion in working with wood crafts and the birth of WD BOX DESIGNS. My wife and I started to purchase unfinished wood products. Our first crafts was wooden lizards and snakes that were on sale. We purchase some cheap brushes and paints to complete our crafts. I think we had three color choices at that time. Soon after that my wife begin to purchase quality brushes and paints, stains, paint trays ect. Her weekly shopping trips to Michael's many times average over 50 bucks. I was thinking this is crazy ! We can afford this. Looking back it was what we needed to fuel our creativity. Before I new it she had accumulated hundreds of dollars worth of ART supplies. That allowed me to begin to turn my idea's into reality I Opened my shop October 11, 2010.
How does it all work?
It starts with an Idea for a new Item. Then I will either purchase an unfinished Item at a craft store or maybe even at the local swap meet to finish or restore. Some of my items are made from scratch that begin as a single piece of wood reclaimed or purchased. Then I just look at the item or wood and imagine the possibilities. This is my favorite part. Next I bring out about a dozen acrylic paints and assorted items from my grab bag of trinkets, I begin to work with different paint schemes and items from me and my wife's supplies. I ask my best friend, wife, and Co-Shop Owner what she thinks as I begin to bring my ideas for a new item into reality. Then, and only then, sometimes many hours latter after and after my scrutiny. Then after I think I have reached perfection and after many times driving my wife crazy asking how dose it look is it ready to be listed n Etsy
