What's Happening


The big project this year was the display case for the Fort Myers Beach American Legion Post. At 18 1/2 feet long, 8 feet high and 2 1/2 feet deep it is huge. We also built two bookcases to compliment the area around the display case. They will be used to house the new history book library. We donated several hundred books to get the library started.


Another project this year was the creation of a series of log slab benches and tables. We also started reclaiming wrought iron furniture and adding wood accents.



Florida has many advantages for us. We can stain and paint all year without heating the shop. Our furniture repair business is also taking root here. As more people decide to move here more furniture is damaged in the move and we are here to bring each piece back to it's original glory. We've added a new tropical themed line of furniture that is gaining local recognition for quality and design.


We are also beginning to do some fundraising for RAIN (Rescue Animals in Need)



This year we decided to relocate the business to Florida. We arrived in October just in time to get started on all the orders for Nativity scenes. Thank you for all those orders.



10% of all sales from February 15th until May 15th, 2011 will be donated to the Kids First Program to help them reach their goal and expand their exceptional programs. For more information about Kids First click on this link. kids first-emergency-shelter

10% of all sales from May 15, 2011 to June 15, 2011 will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club to help them reach their goal and expand their dynamic programs.


May 5, 2010

During the month of May 2010 10% of all our sales will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club 100 Hole Challenge. On Monday June 14th I will be participating in this event and I look forward to presenting the club with this donation. You can help by spreading the word. Here is the link for anyone interested in making a direct donation.

This is also a great time to order your nativity scenes for Christmas. Please don't wait until the last minute on these sets. All orders for nativity scenes placed after November 15th are shipped unpainted.

Today is a computer day. No sawdust today but loads of mega pixels, some will make it into the computer, some will be left for another day. I will be updating the website all weekend to make it easier to find on the search engines and adding more content to the site.


If you have any suggestions for improving the site or items you would like to see added drop me a line at Bob's E-mail

Well, today we are iced in. 3/16" of ice is all over everything. With a slight melt happening it's as slick as a well greased frying pan. We both fell while trying to make it from the deck to the sidewalk. Slightly bruised and embarrassed (it's been years since I took a dive like that) we'll be OK. I'll be tweaking the website a bit today and watching some football.

The last couple days I've been been updating this site, adding features like the PayPal Buy Now buttons. It's going to take some time to add those buttons to the rest of the site, but I'm working on it. Some items like the furniture won't be getting them because shipping costs vary greatly for larger and heavier items. But that's Ok you can still send me an e-mail requesting quotes for shipping on the big pieces.


The pattern selections for bathroom and kitchen pieces were  expanded. There are still more additions to come on those two pages.


Then today I did something I haven't done in a while. I added another person to my presidents collection. I created a woodburned portrait of Barack Obama. It takes a while to create one of these portraits by hand, so if you want one it's first come first shipped.


Jan 11, 2009

Well, as I said it will take some time, and now 9 of the 49 pages of this site have Buy Now  capability through PayPal. I plan on spending more time on this project this week. Here's what it look like.


We dodged the snow storm that buried our neighbors just an hours drive to the south. We are supposed to get our share from Monday through Friday this week.


The squirrels are really enjoying the 50 pounds of corn I left for them on the picnic table.


As always, I will have the opportunity to spend time in the shop building your orders. This is the real joy of this business. We are still getting orders for nativity scenes and I have decided to expand that line to include some additions to the scene.

Added PayPal buttons to Bathroom page.

We now have a relationship with Southern Muscle X-treme Graff-X for vinyl signs, brochures, awnings, business cards and vehicle wraps.


May 26, 2009 We are continuing to create unique new pieces for our clients. I will be posting some of these in a new section called "Commissioned Pieces".
