About

The day in a life of a chainsaw carver....

Our day starts off early here. With 2 loving dogs, 1 opinionated cat, two loud goats, and three busy chickens, we really do not have a choice!
Coffee brewing, Todd and I both get to work, answering e-mails, seeing what has sold, and adding new carvings or Coral REEFlections. Todd has created to our etsy site. By 8am Todd is out in the shop with his carve list for the day in hand, sharpening his chainsaw, mixing paint colors, and sizing up what piece of wood would take the shape of a bird, mermaid, bear or fish.
Most days Todd gets lost in his work. He is first focused on his orders, but will also be inspired by something he sees in the wood grain, or a thought he had the night before to carve something different and wonderful. . Lucky we live in the woods with no neighbors, so the chainsaw can run all day without bothering anyone but the birds, deer and occasional gator (YIKES! True story).
Being Todd's wife, I take on the duty of listing items, as well as the packing and shipping. I have had to learn to be creative in my own right in packing strangely shaped gators, marlins, sailboats ect... Needless to say they know me well at our local post office, and some days I do see cringes followed by polite smiles when they see me walk through the door with 6 or more large packages, some going overseas.
We love living in the beautiful lowcountry surrounded by salt marsh and the Atlantic ocean. And we appreciate that we do what we love in life, and get to share it with others!
