Specializing in Exotic Woods

Welcome to my studio! It is great to share my passion and work with you.

I grew up in a small town in the US Midwest which was known for their football team (it is the smallest city in the US to have an NFL team). Many of my long cold winters growing up there kept me indoors and I worked with my Dad in his basement wood shop and helped him build everything from cabinets to clocks.

Being in kind of a remote part of the country, I was always interested in traveling and seeing other parts of the USA. During college summer breaks, I traveled by car and saw every State within the continental USA by the time I graduated. After graduating college, I backpacked around the world for 4 years. What I experienced and learned during that period changed my perspective on everything. It strengthened my work ethic, made me passionate about conservation, influenced my relationships and deepened my appreciation for everything I have.

Travel is still very important to me and my goal is to visit every country on the globe. I try to do this as frugally as possible, attempting to integrate and experience local cultures and local ways of life. As of April 2016, I have traveled to 138 countries (196 exist). I try to do at least 3 trips a year.

On my journeys, I am always attracted to the local woods and how it’s shapes, colors, grains and patterns tell us about the culture of it’s origin. I try to incorporate this into my work as much as possible.

I study the wood and let it speak for itself: - the swirling patterns of Amboyna Burl (indigenous to the West Pacific region) are captured in my money clips. The constrast of light and soft Californian Redwood I inlay into my compact mirrors since I now call California home. You will see the striking zebra grain of Maccassar Ebony on my business card cases, and Morrocco’s Thuya burl in my turned pens. The Koa groomsmen’s gifts remind me of Hawaii. I even engrave the Honu turtle in it for protection and good luck!

Traveling around the world has made me very conscious of how we should treasure nature’s organic gifts. Because of this I maximize the materials I use and source sustainable woods for my work.

When you choose one of these pieces you are getting something truly one of a kind, since Nature has crafted it herself. On most of my pieces, I can personalize the piece with the name of the recipient for that added special touch.

Please contact me if you have any special engraving requests - logos, quotes, corporate gifts, maps or custom art. The Etsy Shop Page shows only a small selection of what I make. I look forward to talking to you and creating a unique piece just for your occasion. Now…….. Woodulike to come on this journey?

Please make sure your Etsy and Paypal addresses match up and are up to date before checking out - I want to make sure your order ships to the correct address.
If you are shipping to a different address or to a gift recipient, you may edit your address during checkout so the recipient's address is in the invoice.

SHIPPING POLICY - I ship via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation included. Domestic shipping time is 3-4 business days - not a guaranteed delivery time. Once the shipping label is printed, you will receive an email notifying you of the shipment with the tracking number included.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS - I ship worldwide using USPS 1st class mail. International transit can vary from 1 week to 3 weeks depending on country. If you desire upgraded shipping for an international shipment, please contact me prior to purchase. Otherwise, there is no tracking other than US customs number for your purchase. If your country has high customs charges for US imports, please be aware of this. I can not manipulate the value of your package in order to avoid customs charges. If an international package is lost, I can replace with the buyer paying 50% of the cost of the item and 50% of the shipping charges.

Refunds will not be granted only because an item has not or did not arrive as hoped for to an international country.
Refunds and Exchanges
CUSTOM ENGRAVED WORK - Prior to making the purchase, please have made ALL decisions about the item you purchase that will be engraved. These items can not be refunded or exchanged, so please consider this policy prior to ordering. Custom engraved work, once made, can not be cancelled or changed for any reason or fault of the buyer.

If a return arrangement has been approved, the returning item(s) must be received within 7 days of return approval and must be contacted within 48 hours of receipt of purchase to qualify for a return. The USPS tracking "delivered" timestamp will be used for reference. Items must be returned in new quality, not used and undamaged. A 25% restocking fee will be incurred upon return of new quality goods regardless of the reason for return.

HAND CRAFTED WOOD QUALITY - The unique characteristics of wood gives each piece its charm. I do not intend for my wood work to look "mass produced" or "factory manufactured". Variations in one to piece to another will be present. Although most turn out quite similar, each will have its own characteristics. Please be aware of this when ordering.

SHIPPING REFUNDS - No shipping refunds will be allowed as I can not recoup any funds from the USPS or other carriers. So, even if an exchange is made for a custom item, the buyer assumes all shipping fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
For custom logos and designs, it is best to speak with you directly by phone.
I prefer to have you on phone the phone when I am designing layouts and send you a PDF for approval - I will get the item done much quicker this way.
