Hey Folks, Just wanted to let any fellow woodworkers know that we’ve been focused on buying and cutting crotch sections of walnut & finally have them coming out of the kiln every 3-4 months.

These sections of slabs are typically 18”-24” wide. We cut everything at 10/4. Lengt...

They reached Port Newark early last week and because it was our first container… of course it was stopped by customs delaying our shipment. But the wait is finally over and we are so excited to receive our first container. Feel free to stop in next week to take a look at what came in! :)

Glamdring, Summer Awards and, Left Overs ....and so it ‘just is’. All good stories must have a place of start….then some middle ground….and then comes the ‘whats all left over’ or maybe I should say, the ‘left overs’. And as such, it seems fitting that since this is about ‘hobbit holes in my-world’....I should bring in one famous player, who working with me helped get this story going back in the early days of summer. That bein...

The Beauty of a Soul in Wood ….into the fire of your eye, ran the character of the wood, and who was there to welcome my goings, but the burnished steel of i…. —-my going was but a sweetness of golden syrup, and from the tap ran gallons of sap, so what was i a doing collecting, when the springs of spring sprung ambrosia…. ....that was then till in my now of days, i milled your sapwood looking for slabs, and in the soul of your heartwood you still held more...
