Work may be viewed at the shop if you are in the Dane County, WI area.  Please email to make an appt.  Because of the pandemic, only 1 group at a time may visit.  Social distancing and a mask at the shop are necessary.  If you would like to purchase any of the smaller pieces, curbside pickup can be arranged or the item can be shipped as noted below.

Available for immediate purchase in the website store

Salt & pepper shakers, coasters and wooden dolls are almost always in stock.  These can be purchased directly from the store. Many of the larger pieces are also in stock (see the Available Now page).  If you are in the area (Dane County, WI) they can be picked up from the shop or delivered.  Otherwise, shipping arrangements can be made.

Custom

If a piece is not in stock or you want it in a different size or wood, it can be custom ordered.  Please email for more information about any piece you are interested in.

Finishes, stains and aging

Durable, water and alcohol resistant finishes are used on all of my work.  A child safe finish (shellac) is  used on the wooden dolls.  With the exception of ebonizing (the process of making wood black) I do not apply stains to color the wood.  Clear finishes are used to enhance the wood’s natural color and grain. 

All wood darkens with age, some more than others and always more quickly when exposed to sunlight.  Cherry, for example, is very light in color when first finished. While stains can darken it immediately, the beautiful, rich, translucent color associated with aged cherry cannot be matched in any other way. My preference then is to let the sun and time do their work. The wait is worth it.
