My expectations were EXCEEDED. I had one of my grandmothers recipes carved into a stove top cover and have had family members cry seeing it. It’s so perfect he got it to me from a week of me ordering it. It’s so beautifully made and easy to keep clean, so worth the money!!!

Joe was the kindest, most helpful guy!! I emailed him about what I was looking for and he answered right away. Then he sent me samples so I could color match my product with the colors he had, which got to me in 2 days!!! Then my order was complete and to me within a week!! My order was completely custom. I got 2
20"x20" plaques with poly coats on both. They look amazing and match perfect! He honestly went way above and beyond for me!! I couldn't be more grateful to him. I'll recommend him to absolutely anyone!! Thank you sooooo much Joe. I'll be coming to you for all my special order needs!

Joe was extremely helpful in customizing a wooden plaque on which to mount my house number. I highly recommend working with Joe!

I got the slate grey and it is perfect! Joe got it sent out super fast. One board is a little curved so it lays against the wall uneven, but it isn't very noticeable. Overall, love it!

Excellent communication and the cooktop cover is beautiful! I will definitely use this crafter again. It was also carefully packed and shipped! I am having my kitchen remodeled and my cooktop was not installed, so I couldn’t measure it. They cut it from the link I sent for the cooktop and it fits perfectly!

I absolutely love this box, and I can't wait to give this to my fiance on our wedding day with cufflinks inside. Also, wonderful customer service! I ordered this last minute and needed them to get here before my wedding, and they got here super fast!!
Wordworking has been a hobby of mine since childhood, and this shop is how I can share that passion with you.
Making supplies for my sister-in-law's business jumpstarted this side hustle back in 2016. She needed a steady supply of blank stained sign boards and sometimes a special request. I've also built furniture for family and friends as well as a pair of huge free standing stair towers for a local musical.
For sale on Etsy, I make personalized and customizable stove top covers, blank stained wood signs for DIY, and other items from regular pine lumber. In addition to that I make cufflink boxes, charcuterie boards, wine caddies, small ring boxes, business card or phone stands, and other things from pieces of wood that were being "discarded" as firewood. These beautiful hardwoods didn't deserve that fate so I rescued them.
I work in my half of the garage and use my x-carve CNC router, sliding compound miter saw, belt and disc sander, band saw, table saw, drill press, router, spindle sander and scroll saw. I sometimes head upstairs in the house to use the sewing machine too. I'm a Renaissance CraftsMan that way.
When I am in my workshop, I am in my happy place. What can I make for you today?
I am a Mechanical Engineer by day. A Woodworker at play. I've always enjoyed creating things, and so I have decided that I might as well make some things to sell. The goal being that I can buy more tools and materials for my play time.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take JoeBcrafts to ship an item?
I have a day job, so I have to prepare your item for shipping when not at work. I will do my best to ship an order of an in-stock item by the next business day. If I can get your order ready to ship same day before the PO closes, I will so long as your cancellation window has closed (see info in Returns, Exchanges, and Cancellations). Personalized and Custom items will be within their stated time frame. Depending on workload and timing, your item(s) may be ready to ship before the stated ship date.
Custom and personalized orders
If you see an item in my shop but would like a variation, send me a conversation on Etsy and I will let you know if I can make it for you.
For items that have a mineral oil/paraffin wax finish, they will require oiling/waxing from time to time. There are many commercially available oils/wax. There are even people who sell mineral oil/beeswax finishes here on Etsy. The least expensive and most DIY is to simply purchase USP mineral oil (lubricant/laxative) from a grocery/pharmacy. Apply liberally, let it soak into the grain for a few minutes, then wipe off excess. It is best not to use plant based oils as these can become rancid (make your wooden item smell) as they break down.
