All About Me
What everyone should know about me
I am a half aged woodworker in the sub-tropics of Central Florida, working in a tilty little, hurricane blown shop, surrounded by a myriad four-legged reptiles (that I call newts). They are a curious lot and help keep the insect populations down.

I started woodworking at the age of 15, carving thousands of shapes on the bandsaw for my aunt who would route them and/or paint on them. I got pretty proficient and started cutting names freehand. I finally got them small enough for keychains and learned to cut any letter combination so that they would not break. I did the mall show circuits for eight years with my wife, a candle carver, of 26 years, and got to travel throughout these United States where I met fascinating people everywhere.
I am now 45 and although I have worked other jobs in the past 30 years,(cook,signmaker,cabinetmaker,commercial artist, paper mill) wood dust is in my blood. I hope to one day concentrate totally on my craft and pay the bills. The internet has opened up a lot of doors to this end.
I would be happy to shoot the breeze with you if you have similar interests. Please contact me, even if you don't want to buy anything, I am always happy to share my methodology and opinions with a fellow craftsman

My keychains are so durable that I guarantee them for life against breaking. (Running them over with your car or similar extremes doesn't count)
So if you purchase one of my keychains and it ever breaks, just return it to me and I'll make you a new one. No Questions Asked!
The Nature of Wood
Due to the nature of wood with its varying grains and colors, no two pieces are ever exactly alike.
Keychains and such that I make to order are the wood species stated in my ad, but will be of a different grain pattern and the color may be lighter or darker than the sample shown.
Other Things You Might Need To Know
Note on my Keychains; At this time I make keychains with letters only. No other shapes, symbols or numbers. The reason for this is to retain the strength of the keychain.
