The artist uses mainly cherry wood that is often times harvested from their own property or given to them from friends with blowdowns. Most are made with a combination of power and hand tools, including a 3-step sanding process. Some are made from traditional hand tools such as a hatchet, bow saw, gouge, spokeshave, and draw knife, working on a primitive shaving horse which acts as a vise. Each utensil is made individually, therefore no two are alike. They put their mark on every piece with a woodburning stylus and the art is given a hand-rubbed, organic finish of beeswax and coconut oil.
