Announcement   Open for business we are. Thanks for stopping by. Make yourself comfortable, and browse the place a bit. Some of our listings are made from wood that has seen prior use. The rustic pieces are derived from wood that might otherwise end up as fuel for someone's wood stove. I like to take a fresh look at such pieces in order to see something better.

Have you noticed the picture of the winner league baseball bat? It has some history. If you look at the working end of the bat, you will see dark indentations where honest clean connections were made with a hardball. If you examine it more closely along its length, you may be able to detect the lines where a section once split out, making it unusable for its original purpose. Do you wonder why anyone would keep such an item? It helps me remember why I'm in the game; that being re-purposed is how we stay alive :-)

If you want to discuss a listed item, or wish to Customize, just start a conversation.

Determining Shipping Cost Before Ordering:
Shipping rates vary by package size, distance to destination, and (of course) the chosen shipping method.
Shoppers want to know what shipping will cost Before they order.
Shipping cost is calculated by Etsy, using the most economical packing arrangement per order.
Just click on Shipping & Policies, then enter your zip code, and Etsy will show Shipping cost before you place an order. It's easy and accurate!

Fast shipping and the product is just as described. Loving the ease of making hair bows with this piece.

About

It's too soon to quit, and making new things allows me to keep on starting.

In another age I learned to work with steel, cutting, welding, fabricating things to pre-determined designs.

Career progression put me behind a desk, away from metalworking. When I needed to do something productive with my hands, I turned to woodworking. That was long ago, when a man named Reagan lived on Pennsylvania Avenue. Since then working in wood has given me the freedom to create a few useful things.

My shop has become a place to design and make things geared for innovative utility while displaying the inherent natural beauty of wood.

Custom product inquiries are a welcome stimulus, so don't be bashful… Start a conversation.

Shipping

Our shipping profile is set up in a way to minimize shipping cost for the customer, and ourselves. We don't want the value of our products to be unnecessarily diminished by the cost of getting them to you, so we don't try to make a profit on shipping. We only seek to cover our cost.

If you do need to return a standard item, contact us here on ETSY within 15 days from our shipment date, and let’s work out the details. Processing any refund or exchange will require our receipt of the item in the same condition that it left our shop.
