Announcement   NOTE: I've opened a NEW Etsy shop with my wife (WordsmithGifts.Etsy.com) ~ please come visit us there! I still offer the same boxes I sold here, but we've added personalization, and other items!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to the Woods! I live in the forested foothills of the Colorado Rockies, spending glorious days (and sometimes nights) in my workshop filled with wood, tools and lots of sawdust.

I made my first box for a girlfriend in high-school shop class, lining it with bright-pink felt. Since that time, my tastes have matured a bit (in boxes AND in women, my wife says), and I now create boxes with finely crafted fingerjoints.

Now, more from my wife who, we've found, can explain my woodworking process in less-technical terms than me:

I wish you could see my husband work! He patiently sands smooth curves for the sides of several styles, and meticulously fits together intricate patterns of natural-color wood for others. This from a man who throws the cover over the bed and calls it made; go figure!

Gib hand-rubs a tung oil finish on each box, which seals the wood, while allowing its natural color to shine through. He uses native and sustainably sourced hardwoods, choosing boards for their grain and character. Gib also signs and numbers each box ~ he SAYS that's what artists do, but he just likes to watch those box numbers get bigger!

Gib’s newest passion is wood carving. His first creations, Marvin the Moose and Barry the Bear, proudly grace a new shelf in our home (just like the kids’ art projects once did long ago). Gib’s plan is to someday carve Celtic knots into the top of his boxes. Look for them in a couple...um, a few...years!
