This product is for sale.

I make many small boxes on the wood lathe.  I always try to do something to add interest to a basically utilitarian item.  A special box for a special gift is always appreciated.

The first box pictured was burnt to a crisp with a wood burning tool that I designed.

The rest of the boxes are all segmented.  I usually make several at once, but always with small differences.  One of my boxes will truly be unique and one of a kind.

Bio

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.
