So it goes

I am a woodworker and carver based in The Pacific Northwest. I believe in returning back to a craft-made life wherever possible, and am married to my husband of 7 years, of which I play partner to in Rosewater Woodworks. We also have an in-house baby of 2 yrs (specializing in quality control and durability testing) and a guard wolf by the name of Hunter S. Thompson (he usually just pouts in the corner as we play punk rock, wearing his natural eyeliner, wishing we'd change the music to Death Cab, and being all together misunderstood).

I find that food has a rich history of bringing people together, and believe that using wooden utensils and dishes not only brings us closer to those around us, but to the land we come from. I carve all my items with passion for my craft, and out of hardwoods that are meant to last generations.

Other interests of mine include classic literature, Vonnegut (obviously) and Steinbeck, punk rock, oil painting and pen stippling, cooking and baking, and anything that has to do with the outdoors. I had been wanting to carve spoons for years, until one day I finally just looked it up online, and decided I had already wasted so much time with "one day"s and started carving! I know I will never go a day without it again.

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

    I am a woodworker and carver. I make all the items in my shop with a dedicated love for my craft. I work mainly with hardwoods and green woods, and hope that I am just a small part in the long lives of these pieces.

Frequently asked questions
What are your pieces treated with?

All food items are treated with organic, food safe flaxseed oil. If a non-food item is treated with otherwise, it will be noted in the description.

How do I take care of my new wooden utensil?

If ever they start to appear or feel as if they are drying out, it is time to cure them again. You do this by rubbing oil into them. Flaxseed/raw linseed (NOT BOILED LINSEED) is best as it is a dry cure, which means it soaks into the wood and dries there to fill any porous areas where water and food would otherwise penetrate to dry out your wood (or discolor it). There are also wet cures we all have on hand, mineral, coconut, olive and walnut oils all work as well, though they will need to be applied more often, and shouldn't be used if your pieces will be kept in a hot place (e.g. an RV in the summer), as they can go rancid in extreme heats (not including cooking heat, but rather, storing).
