Announcement   Howdy from North Central Texas and my little shop!

There is a trend occurring this past few years that has amazed a lot of folks. That trend is called wooden ware. People are going back to using wood bowls, serving dishes, jars and other items made from wood. Of course folks are still using furniture built with wood. But until recent years you would go to someone’s house, sit at a very nice wood dining table and all the bowls were made from glass, ceramics, or heaven forbid plastics. I would much rather look at a wood bowl full of salads or smashed taters than some thing made from petroleum. I guess many individuals are looking back to the ways used by our ancestors and realizing that wood worked extremely well back then. And, it still does today! So why not use wood? Wood is also easy to care for and it is food safe, durable and extremely nice looking. So why not use it instead of artificial stuff? What you see in the photos is the exact item you purchase. Remember that if you are not in the United States and want to buy from me, yes I do ship international. Just need to know what you want to purchase as well as your location and I will get you a shipping cost. I do special orders as well. I will also accommodate “bundle deals” for 4 items or more. Just let me know what items you want, and I will create a bundle for you. If you want to do a bundle deal, please don’t purchase anything until you contact me. Also, as is in my shipping policies, my shipping prices posted are for the Lower 48 only. If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, contact me with your zip code and I’ll get you a shipping cost. As I always end with, “So, take a look around in my little shop and maybe you will find something that you like. If not then thanks for looking anyway and hope to see ya back soon!” Thanks, Dave

Truth in advertising hits new heights! This lidded bowl is every bit as unusual as Dave promoted, and then some. In fact, it is so unusual, that I would have to classify this item as *Art*, not handmade *housewares*. Out of the many Lathed wood items I have purchased over the years, this one became my favorite, as soon as I took it out of the box. Great job Dave and thanks again.

I am a disabled/retired veteran who has to admit that he just simply likes doing things with wood. A few years ago, I used to build rustic western style furniture and was rather successful with that. But, as I got older I knew I had to scale down to something a little more manageable. I bought a lathe and some basic turning tools, and the rest is history. I like experimenting with different designs. My preference is using only local wood and the largest percentage is from trees that I took down with a little logistical help from my friends. My favorite woods are pecan, mesquite and bodark (osage orange, bois d’ arc). Other woods I enjoy turning are red oak, hackberry, and cottonwood. Please take a look around at what I have to offer and I am sure you will find my prices very competitive. I do this more for therapy than making money. Thanks, Dave

Shipping
I always ship my products by USPS unless requested otherwise. Most everything goes Standard Post. I do try and keep the shipping costs down. With the rise in fuel, boxes, bubble wrap, and other such items it takes to make sure your piece arrives as we both want it to, then this has to be considered in the costs. If you prefer to have your piece shipped priority only, let me know and I will recalculate the costs with your zip code. If I feel I ended up charging you too much I will certainly refund those monies back to you. But, please also keep in mind that these are wood products which do have some weight to them so the costs are accordingly. All prices posted are for the Continental United States only. If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, or in another country please contact me for with your zip code for shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
Simply put, I have and always will stand by my work. If you feel I have misrepresented my work, by either description or photos, let me know how I did that and I will take care of it. If I do need to do a refund, I expect to receive the pieces that you bought first for inspection. I do not refund shipping fees of any kind. After 30 days from when your purchase was shipped I will not issue a refund for any reason. The 30 day timeline was established as that is when all shipper insurances have expired. All refunds are done through PayPal.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my sealers and finishes are considered by the industry as natural. I stay away from the term "food safe" as I do not know what any particular person might be allergic to. The likelihood of someone being allergic to anything I use is very slim, but I err on the side of caution in my descriptions. Myself and many family members use my bowls and platters for serving everything from salads to meats and no one has every had a problem.
