Christina Gurnham Alvarez is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Film and Photography. In her studies Christina (almost) minored in metalsmithing, a skill that later was integrated into her wood working.

After taking some wood working classes at her local community center, Christina became interested in wood working and pursued more study. After selling some shaving sets at her local crafts fair, she saw that there was something interesting about making a shaving set that integrated natural gemstones. Now she has integrated metal working Christina has been able to produce shaving sets that can not be made anywhere else.

Last updated on January 7, 2015
Welcome, my name is Christina and I am a wood worker from Northern Virginia. I love wood working and specialize in maple burl boxes, Christmas ornaments, wooden, USB drives, wine stoppers, hand mirrors and other small wood working items.

Mission:
To produce high quality wood working items that will become family heirlooms. I strive to use very high quality exotic hard wood, and strive to ensure excellent craftsmanship in all of my items.

Most of my items are made of natural exotic hard woods. All of my items are natural, unstained unless mentioned in the item description (very few items of mine are stained). I love working in bloodwood, yellowheart, and purpleheart exotic woods. I also work in a wide range of domestic woods including: cherry, chestnut, walnut, maple, myrtle, maple burl, and redwood.
