Crafted With Love
Estimated reading time: 3 minutes
There are times when woodworking feels like something of a lost art. These days, so many things are made with plastic or particle board, always cut to uniform standards by machines, that quality in general has gone downhill. On top of that, nothing feels special or unique. Traditional woodworking – getting in there and really crafting with your hands – has become an artisanal craft.
The silver lining here, of course, is that unique wooden gifts are more special than ever. Custom made gifts are sure to be the highlight of whatever you’re celebrating, whether it’s something practical, some custom made decor, or just something to display on a shelf. There’s nothing like using or displaying something that is truly unique. When you have a handcrafted product, you know that there’s nothing else out there exactly like it.
That’s why I love woodworking and why I opened my shop. I’ve worked hard at my craft, simply because I love working with my hands, but if I can make somebody’s day at the same time, that’s even better. I’m proud to offer an assortment of products. The website is still a work in progress, so if you’re looking for something specific that isn’t listed on the site, feel free to shoot me a message through the contact us page and I’ll do my best to help you out.
There’s never a bad time to give someone a handmade wooden gift. They make for great wedding gifts, father’s and Mother’s Day gifts, and people have even been known to buy handmade wooden gifts for realtors as a thank you. I guess signing that big, old house really puts you in a giving mood!
I offer a variety of items, from rustic decor to toilet paper holders to stove covers. These are practical things that I feel everyone could use and they’re not just built to look good, but they’re built to last, too.
That said, they’re also built to look good while they last.
Furthermore, if you decide to get someone a gift from the store, I’m happy to customize it in just about any way you can think of. A popular choice is getting names or initials carved into the product. Or, maybe there’s a certain color or shade that you’d like to shoot for. We can talk about it and figure out the best way to make that special gift just a tad more special. And if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, I’ll gladly throw out some ideas. If you’re over on Etsy, be sure to stop at our shop there too! Sometimes we run sales over there that are not on here.
Commitment to Non-Toxic, Eco-Friendly Products
Something that’s important to both myself and my customers is taking care of the environment. So I proudly use only non-toxic, eco-friendly wood and stains for all of my projects. I know that it can be an ethical challenge to buy from a manufacturer with less-than-ethical practices. I won’t put you in that predicament. Get someone a cool gift while protecting the environment. It’s a win-win!
Giving someone a customized, handmade wooden gift speaks volumes about how much you care about that person. Anyone can give a kitchen appliance or slip an IKEA gift card into an envelope. Having something made special for the occasion is something they’re likely to remember forever.
