buildersstudio's Shop Announcement

I make every art piece and sculpture here by hand, out of WOOD; unique science fiction, fantasy, steampunk and retro tech items like robots, ray guns, rockets, UFO's, space scenes, wedding cake toppers, jewelry like necklaces, pins, Christmas ornaments and I love custom orders! Email BUILDERSSTUDIO [!at] YAHOO.COM for anything and everything! Note: the online Etsy receipt is the same as the ETSY emailed invoice and it has nearly all of the info you need to pay for your ETSY transaction!

More wedding cake toppers coming on a regular basis and custom orders always welcome, either made just a little different or brand new from scratch, your own dream style from the ground up!

My tree ornaments are listed as DANGLES, as well as my necklace pendants (and most can be made into pins, keychains, earrings and more, too! Just email me). I often show these items "naked" without loops etc. (like a mini sculpture) but unless otherwise noted I always place a small loop from which to hang your item from a necklace, rear view mirror or tree at no extra charge!

Note that only items specifically marked as one of a kind (or OOAK) are that. Also, obviously there are slight variations from one item to another or to the pic shown because they are made one at a time, by hand, by me, and most people (including myself) enjoy this!

I hope you find something you enjoy!

Hi and thanks for looking! Still the only (and first that I know of) guy out there really building cool fantasy, science fiction, steampunk and other weird items out of wood, often making them look movie set real! I spend a LOT of time in the studio and do quality work all the way, all hand made from scratch by me, all my own original designs ... hence I may not be on the computer most days because I'm in the studio ... but you will see and feel where my time and your money goes when you get one of my creations in your hands -- quality all the way and that's what counts, right?! And do feel free to ask away if you have questions or want to discuss custom orders!


I take Etsy's own built in credit card system called Direct Checkout, plus several other methods for those that want including old fashioned checks and money orders, even bank transfers and Moneygram, Western Union and the like. I ship like any mail order "guy" after payment comes in, unless you want to make a layaway payment plan arrangement with me (write first before checking out in this case).


I generally ship by the post office, pretty quickly, though certainly not daily as I am in the studio so much of my time -- PLEASE allow enough time for your payment to get to me, the order to be processed and then delivery by the PO, etc., especially to foreign countries outside the USA -- which I am always HAPPY to ship to (please give me a phone number if you can that I can add to customs forms for their use, not mine)! If you need upgraded shipping write to me first.

Refunds and Exchanges

If you want to be sure about damages covered for your order write to me about insurance, etc., but all wedding cake toppers and large items and or orders are automatically insured.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Most of my sculptures are generally all wood, even if they or parts of them don't seem like it! Only the occasionally tiny misc. bit might be something else. The finishes are for the most part (some just to an extent) metallic, and while the charm of the wood can often be seem beneath most people marvel that these are not made from metal! So they're also pretty light weight, too, and the cake toppers sit beautifully and lightly on any cake!

I love to do custom works of all sorts and am happy to give quotes for anything from slight variations of existing items to all new, from scratch, giant sculptures or anything in between, for any occasion or whim! Note that I can often turn many of my items, if they are not already, into necklaces, pins, cufflinks or cake toppers, or leave them plain as a little miniature (often for no charge)! Just email me at buildersstudio [!at]

Also email if you have a sincere interest in wholesale or the like for a going concern of yours, or represent a gallery.

My collectible art pieces are generally not meant for young children to play with. Do to their handmade and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some small amount of variations are of course normal.

Please note: All of my items are original designs by me and I retain all rights to them and no transfer in whole or part is ever implied or granted without my written consent and usually a fee. Items may not be copied in whole or part or their images used in any way. You are buying the item(s) only not the rights to duplicate them or their images. All of this is normal in the arts world but in todays digital computer craze I think it bears clarifying.
