Announcement   Thanks for checking out my ETSY shop!

I'm a woodworker in Las Vegas, where I build custom furniture. I also make tile, for inlaying in the furniture I build. While woodworking is my "day job"- working with clay is my passion.

Ceramic pieces are SO MUCH easier to ship than large pieces of furniture!

Somewhere along the way, I became obsessed with making sushi dinnerware, probably because I could never find any that I truly liked! These days, I'm all about elevating the sushi experience - whether it's making great dinnerware, or building custom tables for dining.

I add a lot of tile into my furniture, with funky, fun designs. Wood just seems happier next to a piece of clay.

To see more of my work, or to contact me directly, visit my website at www.wooditis.com. I also publish a woodworking/ceramic blog, discussing anything from my current commission to rants about anything from tools to studio frustrations. Join me at www.wooditis.blogspot.com.

Wood and clay? It's all good.

About

Immersed in wood - and yes, I do this full time...

It’s hard enough being a full time artist, but add into the mix that I run a woodworking school and build commissioned pieces on the side - well… there aren’t a lot of free hours in the day. That’s OK, though - I’ve been working with wood for so long that living in a woodshop is second nature to me.

With a degree in Furniture Design and a four-year carpentry apprenticeship under my belt, I can confidently say that I’ve done it all in wood - including farmers markets, wholesale and retail sales, online stores, mall shows, holiday sales, custom work, spec pieces, commissioned sales, gallery exhibitions (both solo and in a group) - you name it, and I’ve probably experienced it. The pieces that bring me the most joy are collaborations with buyers, where I’m given freedom to put my own ideas into the framework that they provide. Give me a starting point and let me explore some ideas; we’ll meet somewhere in-between your vision and my technique.

When I was about 14, a relative game me a small roll-top desk that she’d bought at a garage sale. It was missing three small drawers, and my family had a difficult time finding someone to build the replacements. I’ve always remember how tough it was to find a custom woodworker, and helping out customers with small pieces like that have always been high on my priority list. Working with wood is a dying art, and bringing old pieces back to life is an art to which I’m committed.

As a professional artist for over twenty-five years, I've been making custom furniture for people across the planet. I believe in simple, sturdy pieces that you shouldn't be afraid to use. My joinery and techniques are time tested, and the hand-rubbed finishes I use allow the wood to feel like it should - soft to the touch, yet durable to dings.

My ceramic work is an off-shoot from my furniture making - inlaid tile plays an important part in my designs. Since I'm a sushi fanatic, I specialize in making simple, smart sushi dinnerware. The glazes I use are mixed in my studio, and of course, they're microwave and dishwasher safe, and lead free.

So in the event of any dissatisfaction, once I receive the item in question, I'll refund the full purchase amount minus the shipping. All returns will be on your dime.
Payment
I accept all forms of payment - PayPal is easiest and will allow your purchase to be shipped immediately. Luckily, I live just down the street from a post office branch that's open 24/7. (Remember- it's Las Vegas... everything stays open 24/7!) Unless I'm out of town, I usually ship the very same day of purchase.

Other forms of payment will have to clear the bank before any purchase will be shipped. This includes personal checks AND money orders.
Shipping
You know what my pet-peeve is? People who overcharge for shipping.

I'll make every attempt to use USPS Flat Rate boxes when shipping. I round up my fee to the next dollar, it just makes it more simple, and gives me a little extra for packing materials, printing labels, etc.

These Flat Rate boxes save you a ton, as there is no weight restriction. When something won't fit in one of these boxes, there are a few alternatives to keep the cost reasonable.

A good friend of mine retired from UPS and gave me the skinny on shipping. In a nutshell - if your package is less than five pounds, it's better to ship it using the good old post office. But if it's more than five pounds, UPS is best. So depending on what you buy, and how I pack/crate it, smaller packages will go out using one of those two services.

If you purchase one of my larger pieces, I will make a few calls and find the best shipping rate I can. Some of these options include UPS Freight, DHL, Con-Way Trucking and Greyhound Freight. The last one has been the least expensive way to go, but will require you to pick it up at your local Greyhound station, so you may need a truck on your end, if the item is large. Still, it's a HUGE savings.

Finally, I use recycled packing materials, including peanuts, bubble wrap and boxes in order to keep my shipping charges low. In the event that I run out of these materials (it happened last holiday season!), I'll have to start increasing the price of my shipping. I'll keep it fair, I promise.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am once again taking custom orders.

If you see something in my store, and you would like me to tweak the listing somehow - like add some plates, or take away a sake set, I will be glad to change it for you. I believe in buying what you need, not what someone tells you that you need! Please convo me and let's work something out!

I'm always looking for galleries to carry my work, and have great relationships with the many gallery owners who have carried my work over the years. If you have a shop and would like to carry my work, please convo me.
