This is a beautiful knife! It shipped on time and a portion of the order was unavailable when the item was initially shipped. However, the extra item was shipped very soon after as promised by the vendor. I am very happy with this product!

The wood grain of the bottle stopper is so interesting that i had temped to make it a pendent had it not been so large. Anyway, I like it very much and it will go on the whiskey bottle i have.

My story

Most woodworkers start out as hobbiest and my story is no different. I shared the garage with my wifes car for far to long! We made the decision to build a dedicated shop, so her car wouldn't be covered in dust anymore.
I decided to attend a carpentry trade school in High school, so I put that knowledge to work. I designed and drew up the plans, got my permits and started building the shop. I spent the rest of the summer building my garage shop. Its a very cozy space at 12 x 20, but allows me the freedom to do what I enjoy!
Over the years I have expanded the business by adding a portable saw mill and a lumber storage building.
Owning your own business means everyday is an adventure and there is always something new to learn. I have been attending the Marc Adams School of Wood working to add new techniques and to broaden my horizons. I have also been very fortunate to work with many masters of the wood working trade and benefit from there knowledge.
Each day is a new challenge, and I looking forward to working with you and seeing what is ahead...

    My woodworking has always been my outlet for creativity and sanity. There is nothing better then making momentos for people to enjoy for many years to come. Each project has its own challenges which makes it fun to get out of bed in the morning!
