First Vlog! July 26 2018, 0 Comments

Hey guys! I decided to start a video blog on youtube. I will be posting a new vlog every other week along with a monthly shop project video. If you would like to see me make something please feel free to leave suggestions in the comment section and I will do my best to make a video for it. As mentioned in the first vlog I will also be releasing a video series called " Peddling Wood- Artisan Wood Workers Across The U.S.A." I just started filming the series and will be filming for the next three months as I travel across the country on our second annual tour. I will be posting a video soon diving deeper into that project.

Hope you enjoy the first vlog! and please keep in mind I am not a professional videographer or movie editor. I literally picked up some equipment and downloaded the software and I am learning as I go. I hope to improve at making these videos as much as possible. Any tips are welcome!

Thank you,

-William H. Waters

Buckeye Burl Shave Sets! August 31 2014, 0 Comments

New addition coming to the store!

I have been looking for this wood for a long time now and I finally found it! Buckeye burl has so much awesome figure and different colors it almost seems like it isn't even wood. Many people have asked me if it is marble when they see it.

I have been making live edge wood and resin infusion pieces for a while now but they have only been available for custom order. I am now developing the process and design shave sets made in this fashion to be available for everyone to purchase right from the store! Although the design of each set is similar the grain, texture, color and shape of the wood and the resin flowing through is ever changing making every set one of a kind.

I will be offering many colors of resin to choose from and the hardware will be available in chrome, gold or gunmetal.

Stay tuned to see them in the store!
