Hand mirrors made from a variety of native woods. Most are 4″ diameter but I occasionally make 6″ mirrors. These are usually made to sit on a make up table.
For those that have a few good years on them, I make a special edition mirror that will remove wrinkles and years from your age. Of course I have to charge extra for these mirrors.
I took an early retirement from the telephone company in 2000 to build a new house and shop in beautiful northwest Arkansas. Retirement also allowed me time to run my sawmill. I custom saw for many people who bring any where from one log to a dozen logs. Many times these logs would have ended up in a burn pile.
When not sawing, I work in my shop where “I just make things”. I primarily make products out of wood but I also do some metal work. Production work is boring so I like the one off designs.
As a maker, my goal is to make items that are both useful and beautiful. When I accomplish both, it satisfies my soul.
