Crafting unique wood goodies in Bend, Oregon
I started making wood bike fenders after I saw some that were on display at a bike expo. I was building furniture for myself and friends at the time and so I had most of the tools needed and so made a few sets and they turned out pretty nice. After selling on Ebay demand grew enough to be able to quit my job and turn bending wood into a full time job. Now I commute 40 feet with coffee cup in hand to my small shop here in Bend to start my day!

Frequently asked questions
Fenders- I finish all of my fenders with four coats of marine grade polyurethane finish but I do suggest that you apply a good quality car wax with UV protection a couple times a year. This will help to keep the sun from degrading the finish over time.
Bottle openers- I finish all of my bottle openers with vegetable oil. If you want to restore the color if they get dull simply apply more vegetable oil.
Planter boxes- Planter boxes are finished with Teak oil. If the finish gets dull over time and you would like to refresh the look to bring out the wood colors simply wipe on more Teak oil. You can find Teak oil at any hardware store.
Rear Rack- Wipe down with UV car wax a couple times a year.
Full coverage fenders- Please make sure that the fender is the correct size for your wheel size which is stamped on the sidewall of your tire. For a 700c tire/wheel sometimes there is also a 28" designation. This is the same size as 700c. For choosing the correct width simply measure across the width of your tire and add approximately 1/8" on either side for some overhang. This doesn't have to be exact but use this as a general rule.
The Chop Chort rear fenders are a general fit and are mostly meant for a 700c wheel size bike but they will also work with 27" wheels. They simply overhang the tire so fit is not as much of a concern as the full coverage fenders.
