Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why was this website created?

Aside from the obvious answer that "everyone has to have a website", it serves as my online portfolio. I meet new people all the time, and if I have business cards with me, I'll offer them one.My web address is printed on the card so that they can come here to see some of my work, or just get more information about me. This is easier than having a portfolio with me all the time, and allows people to view this information at their leisure. It also gives my existing clients a place to come to see what I've been up to.

Why can't I buy items directly from this website?

The simple answer is because, with the exception of our cutting boards I very rarely build anything 'on spec'. Just about everything I create is commissioned (custom made to order). I prefer to discuss design, materials, timeframes and pricing with my clients before I begin work. This way I know my clients will get what they expect, when they expect it, and there won't be any surprises for either of us.

There are occasions when I'll attend local crafts fairs or other local venues where I'll have some items available for sale. I'll post details about these venues in advance, including the sort of items I intend to have available in the "What's New" section of this website. Check there for updates if you're interested.

There may also be times when I'll have items for sale, either left over from art/craft shows, or because I simply "felt like building something particular". These items will also be listed in the "What's New" section.


What if I know I want a table (or cabinet, or turned vessel, or gift item, etc.), but I'm not exactly sure about all the details?

That's an easy one! Bring me your rough idea, a sketch, or a magazine or newspaper clipping and let me work with you to develop it into plans for that special piece. Visit the "Custom Design" section of this site and you'll see how we can work together to develop plans for an item that will meet your needs and desires.
