I took woodshop in high school for two years and loved it. During the summer months between college semesters and holidays I worked at a local cabinet shop making high-end custom kitchen cabinets. It wasn’t long before I started making furniture for myself, family and friends. I was also repairing furniture, broken rocking chairs, antiques for friends, refinishing antiques and would occasionally make them a piece of furniture for their house. While making and repairing furniture I started making country wood crafts, quilt racks, cutting boards, birdhouses, custom sandblasted mailboxes and signs, cabinets, red oak benches for Winn Dixie and Harris Teeter, food displays, furniture, cutting boards, stools, etc., selling them at local craft shows and to businesses and at galleries. I am an amateur woodworker that loves working with wood.
I soon joined the Greenville Woodwokers Guild and made alot of freinds I wanted to learn how to use the lathe, it was easy to find experienced woodworkers to mentor me, teaching me how to wood turn. For months on end, I spent thousands of hours learning wood turn on a huge Jet lathe.
I love woodworking but I also love to garden, watch bluebirds, hiking, camping, cooking and shooting my guns. While cooking I found that I needed a nice cutting board so I made a bunch of them. Soon after learning how to wood turn I made a bunch of recessed wine stoppers, baby rattles, bowls, plates, boxes and more. Everyone wanted a cutting board and wine bottle stopper. I started giving them away as gifts for birthdays and Christmas to family and my friends.
Check out the beautiful cutting boards and bread boards for entertaining or food preparation. The end grain maple and cherry board is a heavy duty board and makes a great gift. At my house we use alot of cutting boards for serving and to keep the hot pans or casserole dishes off of the bar. The wine bottle stoppers look great on an open bottle of wine. For the ice cream lover you will find my heavy-duty ice cream scoops, all are hand-turned on the lathe and assembled with a stainless steel scoop! If you enjoy watching birds and want to add a nice rustic birdhouse for your garden, check out my tin roof bluebird houses. If you like I can custom make any of my items for you, a specific size, wood, etc., just contact me.
I hope that you will browse my site, maybe find a gift for someone close to your heart, the chef, the bird watcher, grandparent or parents. Perhaps a wedding or birthday gift. Each item will be carefully packaged before shipping.
Be sure to check some of the letters and emails from wonderful people who have purchased from me.
