  • Sentimental Keepsake Line
I introduced this line in 2017 and it has become a very popular product. I utilize special wood from customer's homestead, trees from their property, old furniture, barns, or just about anything wooden from their childhood. Examples are rolling pins, bowls, pens, letter openers, confetti lamps, wine stoppers and more. Below are examples of items I have made.
