Not the Rocking Chair Type of Guy!

When I retired from the Navy on disability, I wasn't sure what to do with myself. I tried sitting and watching tv, but that was boring.

Next, I started helping my wife by telling her what she had missed while cleaning the house. In a hurry, she told me to find a hobby before micromanaging the housework shortened my life span! So I took up woodworking. I find the woodworking fascinating and relaxing. I could spend all day lost in a project.

Carrying my work to craft shows was exhausting, and hard on the pieces. My wife found Etsy first, and encouraged me to open a shop with my items. I make the wood art, and she does the photography and listings for me.

    I am a self-taught woodworker. I took up the hobby shortly after I retired from the Navy on disability. I just wasn't cut out for sitting in a rocking chair!

  • Lisa


    I'm Dave's wife, and I handle the tasks that free him up to do the woodworking he loves. I do most of the listings, most of the convos, and all the packaging and shipping.

I'm glad you stopped by to see my wood art! This is a hobby of mine that has grown into my art being in several local galleries, and now here! If you do not see your dog's breed, just send me a convo and ask!
