Hello! I am Scott, a full-time woodworker and the owner of

I carve my woodstuffs individually by hand, using a free-hand letter style that I have developed (over 33+ years) with strength and readability in mind.

I use table saws, bandsaws, scroll saws, frets saws, sanders, grinders, drills, routers, fingers, eyes and gray cells to create what you see. There are no computer aided tools in my shop. If you have any questions or an idea that I might be able to help you with, feel free to contact me.

What’s in a name…? The name DustyNewt came from the sociable lizards that abound in my tilty, storm-blown workshop here in Central Florida. They love hanging out on my workbench with me, and are curious about the tools that make the dust that they forage in, keeping my shop’s bug population at a minimum. There are so many varieties that I just refer to them all as “newts”, although real newts are rarely seen, except out by the fish pond.

Peace in Wood,

-- Peace in Wood ~

Glad you made your way here. I would love to live in a place where I could have some peacocks around. My son has always really liked them. Which is why the stuffed one ended up at our house.

Welcome to LJ. Your interest in styles is perfectly in line with mine. As well as the philosophy of purism. I am so open to interpretation.

I think you will enjoy it here, great group of guys (and gals).
