Works great and I like the tin vs. a plastic container. Shipped quickly.

Very good quality board made by Scott. Quality of wood is very nice and all the detailing is wonderful! Unfortunately, we had a lot of issues with the post office (due to the holidays). Scott was very on top of everything regarding the situation. 100000/10 with customer service. Thank you very much for everything! 😊

So gorgeous! Amazing quality and craftsmanship. Ordered this piece as a gift but had a hard time wrapping it up to give away. Hope to be able to buy another piece for myself soon.

This was purchased as a gift for a lady with discriminating taste who loved the idea that her gift would be supporting an independent artist. She was not prepared for "the object of exquisite beauty" (her words) that she received. Can't say thank you enough!

This is a very beautiful tropical almond bowl. It is a species not very often seen on the internet. It has great grain pattern and color. Nicely crafted.

THRILLED with this gorgeous handcrafted bowl! This will be a family heirloom without question. With the slivers of opal, it was the perfect 24th wedding anniversary gift to my husband. He LOVES it. I appreciated the beautifully handwritten transcription of my message and the included special wax to keep it looking it's best!
Turning rescued wood into art
I love woodworking, carrying on a family tradition built in North Carolina, where I was born (Siler City represent!). I grew up in Durham and have watched from a distance as residents and city leaders transformed that dying industrial tobacco town into a cultural haven.
I currently live in South Florida with my kids and my Lab, Skye.
I worked 15 years in newspapers, starting out at the State Press at Arizona State. I've been a reporter at the Bakersfield Californian, reporter and editor at the Eureka (Calif.) Times-Standard, city editor at the Chico (Calif.) Enterprise-Record and city editor at the Medford Mail Tribune.
In today's hectic "reality show" world governed by electronics and social media, handmade items carry special meaning. Every piece I make is unique and has its own story to tell. My bowls and art pieces are well-built and will last, carrying their story for generations.
