Greetings to all from my little shop and North Central Texas! Don’t ask me what the weather is doing because it seems to literally be changing every time you turn around. Up and down, up and down. When it’s doing that I don’t mind admitting that it slows me down a bit. But I am getting some done and I hope what comes out you will enjoy! Start looking fairly soon for some pieces turned from white oak. I think you are definitely going to like that. So stay tuned and more is coming! 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

A stunning specimen of Live Oak, expertly crafted into a piece of functional art, for...making art! Dave has certainly got a handle on finding exceptional chunks of wood, putting a spin on them and making them the talk of the family. Thanks again Dave!

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.
