Just in Time for the Holidays

Here in Pennsylvania, the leaves are still falling and the temperature is rising. But Rob has been up in the studio day and night for the past several months, thinking about what you will want for holiday gift-giving.  (Especially since you folks cleaned out our inventory at our last two shows!) Here's just a few of his newest creations, which will be debuting at Artisan Fair in November. There's boxes for your keepsakes... ....boxes for your tissues... ...boxes for your beer...   And of course, creations that are not boxes! Everything is one-of-a-kind and it will all be at the...

Or a megalodon* tooth from the coastal rivers of South Carolina. * That would be a prehistoric shark about 3x the size of a...

Rob Rings in the New

Rob will be ringing in 2018 by fulfilling his dream of woodworking full time. That's right, he has turned over the reins of his printing business to his partners. He will now devote his days to creating boxes, boards, and anything else that strikes his fancy. And then hitting the road to meet you all at craft shows again. Right now, he is fulfilling commissions from our craft shows last fall. Like an encore version of this knife block, which lets you slide your knives in and out of bizillions of bamboo skewers (de-skewered, of course). And we're also ringing...
