Custom Projects

Do you have an idea for a woodworking project that you’d like to have built? Is there something in my portfolio that you’ve fallen in love with? Let me know! I love discussing projects, and I’d be happy to build your project for you.

At this time, I am limited to smaller projects, as my shop is still in the development stages and my equipment is limited. Below you’ll find some of the items I’m currently equipped to make. Don’t see your project idea listed below? Feel free to ask me – there’s bound to be projects that I can tackle that I don’t have listed here.

Project prices will vary depending on a few factors – the type of wood chosen, what sort of hardware is required for assembly, and the amount of time any given project will take to complete. When we discuss your project, I will provide a price estimate.

 

List of Available Woods

Pens & Pencils

Pens are categorized into three types: Slimline, Executive and Fountain. Slimline and Executive pens use replaceable Cross-style ink cartridges. Fountain pens must be manually refilled. Pencils use thin mechanical-style lead and are only available in Slimline format at this time.

Pen hardware generally includes the tip, center ring, clip and pen mechanism, though hardware may vary depending on the type of pen. The hardware detail varies from simple to extremely intricate; the variety is far to large to display here. Please let me know your hardware preferences when discussing your project and I will provide options for you to choose from. Hardware finishes include gold (24kt and matte), chrome (also available in matte finish), platinum, titanium, gunmetal, copper, and black. Note that not all hardware can be obtained in all of these finishes.

Beer & Wine Accessories

Beer & wine accessories include bottle openers, bottle stoppers, corkscrews, and handles for your pressurized beer taps.

Bottle openers are available with your choice of 10k gold plated or chrome hardware.

Bottle stoppers can be ordered with metal, silicone and cork stoppers. Metal stoppers are available in a variety of shapes, and all contain silicone rings for sealing. Please inquire for more details.

Tap handles are available with silver or brass ferrules. I am unable to make logo plates for tap handles at this time.

Wooden Rings

Wooden rings make for a classy and unique accessory. In order to make a ring that is properly sized for your finger, you will need to provide measurements of the finger you plan on wearing the ring on. Wooden rings cannot be re-sized like conventional metal rings, so getting the size right initially is important. Please reference the ring chart below and provide your size (in MM or USA size) when ordering. If you are located in San Diego, I can assist you in measuring your finger for your ring.

Candle Holders

Candle holders can be made to accommodate virtually any size candle. Please let me know what size candle you are looking to fit in your holder when discussing your project. Candle holders can be made with or without hardware (glass or metal hardware, depending on the type of candle). I recommend using hardware with your candle holder for the purpose of wax collection.

Vases

Vases can be made any size up to approximately 12″ in diameter, and can be designed to accommodate live or imitation plants. Vase sizes may be limited to the availability of suitably-sized wood. I am unable to create segmented (joined pieces of wood) vases at this time.

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Boxes

My box designs are rounded and feature removable lids. Like the bowls, I am limited to creating boxes no larger than 12″ in diameter. Box bodies and lids can be made from separate woods, giving you the option to have lids that compliment or contrast the bodies.

At this time, I am unable to take orders for conventional square-shaped boxes with attached lids.
