I love Martha's shop because it promotes use of wood and natural materials. Purchased this set of salt and pepper shakers for my husband and myself. We absolutely love the minimalist interlocking design. Plus we both love maple, and this set made of maple and cherry hardwood is perfect! Martha is pleasure to work with; she helped in the selection of wood for the shakers; the set arrived nicely packed in eco-friendly sack! Recommend highly!

Not only is the peppermill beautiful, but it's also a fantastic grinding mechanism, turns easily, and is easy to fill thanks to the large stopper on the top. Awesome! :)

These rolling pins are a work of art. It was purchased as a wedding gift, but is so beautiful that it will be hard to part with. Will definitely need to buy one for myself!

I specialize in developing and articulating ideas for space objects in wood for the home. I invite you to take the opportunity to further shape the atmosphere around you. I'll try to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours, then we'll see what we can develop together.

All designs and images are property of downsworks, llc, and cannot be reproduced without permission.

All work is hand produced by me. They are made with natural materials, which means that there will be some variation in color, sometimes in texture as well. These are some of the qualities that make natural materials so beautiful.

My line of housewares are made with the same care as my furniture, each piece of lumber hand selected for its color and grain.
