|Hardwood Art Creations||
What began as a therapeutic hobby and diversion from my career as a scientist has turned into an enthusiasm for crafting beautiful things from wood. I really enjoy the grains and colors that can be found in unusual wood species, and I particularly like turning it into "artwork you can play with." Although I occasionally work from published patterns, everything you see here is an original design, entirely hand-crafted, and won't be found elsewhere.
Hardwood Art Creations is essentially (but not officially) not-for-profit. I donate my proceeds (typically 50% or sometimes 100% of sales) to charities such as Max's Ring of Fire, which supports treatment options for pediatric cancer.
Custom orders are definitely accepted. Much of what you see in the gallery exists because someone came up to my booth and asked me "Do you have a (fill in the blank) puzzle?" and I didn't, so then I went away and created one. I enjoy collaborating with people on these sorts of projects, so please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Thanks for visiting!
