It’s been a while since I posted any new photos but I’ve just finished a big batch of new Rustic Screen Doors. I feel like I get a little better with every carving I do. The designs are getting more complex and I’m loving the challenge that they present.

Picture #1 ~ All of the latest doors, lined up against our fence. This photo got my Facebook page 100 likes in 24 hours, 40+ Shares, and over 4000 views. I was stunned!

Picture #2 ~ “Loon Love” Pretty typical Mountain Pond scene featuring Loons – A favorite Adirondack bird by many.

Picture #3 ~ “Bear and Cub: Welcome” This is a new design for me and I have to say I LOVE that Cub! But Hubby seems to think it’s a little “cutsie”. Maybe, he’s right but I still LOVE that CUB!

Picture #4 ~ “Woodland Moose” Moose are our most popular design so we make lots of them but I love how the carved “twig work” accents the woodland scene.

Picture #5 ~ “Moose and Eagle” A simple door featuring two of the most requested carvings ~ Moose and Eagle.

Picture #6 ~ “Buckshot and Leaves” I’ve made several deer doors and had really started using the carved “twig work” a lot. So I decided at the last minute to change it up a little and replace the small twigs with leaves. I really love the overall look.

I’m still using pine and hardwood plywood to create the doors. I sometimes get comments from people about using “better” materials but I remind them that Jeans started out as the working man’s pants. Today, Jeans are FASHION! So, I make plywood fashionable! LOL

Beautiful! If you do that quality work with pine and ply, tell the nay-sayers to hush up

Great design and craftsmanship! I really love the Buck & Leaves.

I would suggest that if a client or potential client, is commenting on the quality of wood being used, that you try to make an example of your work using better wood or hiding the obvious use of plywood. If they comment on it, this means it bothers them and that may warrant their decision not to buy your product, or even refer someone to you. Example: “I know a gal who does great work making carved screen doors, but she uses plywood.”

As an artist you want to create the best you can, but as an entrepreneur, you must also listen to your public and cater to the client. If you offer several options of construction/materials for different price points this will give opportunity to get the sale more so than not.

Since my canes are custom work, I have a starting price for the basic design with non-figured woods, then the price will increase as the quality of woods are higher, as they cost me more. I inform the client what price range certain woods are and they can give me their budget or comfort zone of price and I will work with them. I will provide the best woods available for that price range. This makes both parties happy, as they feel confident that they are getting a quality piece at what they can afford and I am getting my share too.

What ever you decide, I hope sales soar, as your work is incredible and unique!

I see “woodland moose” and “moose and eagle”... What? No ”moose and squirrel” ? LOL (obscure Rocky & Bullwinkle joke)

VERY cool doors! I dont “DO” Facebook, but if I did, I’d sure enough “Like” these too!
And like you, my wife loves the bear cub too.
