and I are a team in so many ways. We have been married since 1991.
He creates and manufactures the various products you see on this
website. I handle all of the bookkeeping and the marketing to
keep the business running. In addition to this,
our teamwork has also developed a line of woodburned art.
you combine my background in arts and crafts, and Tim's years
of experience as a master craftsman in wood, a unique line of
woodburned art is the result.
half of the creative side is finding and developing patters as
well as the actual woodburning. Tim's half of the creative process
is coming up with the different surfaces upon which I can woodburn.
woodburning (also called pyrography) is done on soft woods, such
as basswood. I like to experiment and not limit myself to the
standard surface. I have created on oak. walnut, cherry, ash,
hickory and knotty pine. You can check out our Woodburned
Art Gallery Here
woodburning is done with woodburning irons and not by a laser,
therefore, it is a slow process, but also results in a unique
piece. The irons heat to approximately 950 degrees. As i work
on a project, the wood seems to come to life as I darken and shade
it by repeatedly applying the different tips of my irons.
worked part time for a year on a four foot project of red oak
plywood to woodburn the three horses shown in our gallery. This
was a special project for my brother-in-law requested for his
vary by size and complexity of the design. Sample pictures can
be seen in our gallery of designs.
I have a large selection of patters and pictures
available that are not shown and would be happy to consult with
you on a design and wood surface of your choosing. Call me at (419)
