Skills and Techniques
Wood working skills include resawing wood which is my way of helping the environment by recycling ONLY dead fallen trees to make lumber for many of my woodworking projects. Each and every Item I make is unique unto itself. No two signs are exactly the same. All my signs are made from scratch and all signs have the text engraved into the wood then the engravings are hand painted and given a nice finish. I don't use stencils or vinyl letters...
Get to Know
I believe in recycling, as such most of the items you see in my shop are made from wood that was left over from other projects or from my "scrounging" adventures. I also do some custom re-sawing which means that when a tree has fallen I recycle the wood from it by cutting planks and air drying the wood for future projects. Yes, re-sawing is time consuming and expensive but I like knowing that many of my items are 100% made by me from start to finish. I only use trees that have died naturally. I never cut live trees. All of my work is signed and dated on the back. Some of the Games and Toys I make I suspect will be destined for Children. As such I use QUALITY NON-TOXIC stains and finishes. No China made lead paint here. As you can tell from my prices I do this as a hobby. I am NOT on Artfire to get rich or to make a full time job out of it. I use Artfire to avoid honey-doos and yard work and to pay for my supplies so I can continue to make stuff. (Smile) Happiness is making sawdust in the woodshop.

I love to make Aggravation games as this game brings people closer together and it keeps kids busy. These old school board games are still kid magnets even today.
