I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It ...

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

I primarily make small woodstuffs (my name keychains being the most popular) and I feel really guilty buying a large board of some beautiful exotic or domestic hardwood and then hacking it up into pieces that I can use. I feel that the board shoul...
