When I build a piece of furniture or a cabinet, there are many small pieces left over that are too small to be made into another piece of furniture. These pieces may be small and oddly shaped, but they are also way t00 attractive to be thrown into the fireplace.
So,, these pieces are "re-cycled" and turned into crafts.
Below are examples of some of the crafts I do,, from pepper mills to bottle stoppers, to pens and lazy susans. Many of these are hand-turned on the lathe, while other slightly larger pieces are made into wine racks or jewelry boxes.
Please click on the links below for your gift-giving needs. If you are after something you just don't see here, or would like a certain specie of wood, drop me an e-mail --- I just might be able to create it !!
For those who cook (and maybe for those who don't) these peppermills will make a great addition to your kitchen, and an even greater one to your dining room table ! Fresh ground pepper is light years ahead of the pepper which already ground that you would buy in a supermarket.
Available in different heights, and MANY different looks, these units will add taste to both your palate and home !
Turned from the same stock that my furniture is built out of, these peppermills are hand-turned and feature a SOLID grinding mechanism, which is designed to last for a VERY long time ! And, the price per unit may pleasantly surprise you !! They are available for as little as $30.00 each.
These are the "old style" lazy susans that fit on everyone's kitchen table... Shown in cherry & oak. they are a full 15" circle (available in any size) and finished in polyurethane for easy cleaning...
