This is just a sampling of the various special projects I've done. Requests often start with something seen in my displays, which might recall a fond memory of a wooden toy from childhood or parenting. Sometimes requests are born out of a hope of fixing a beloved wooden toy or trinket. Some requests have nothing to do with what I currently sell, but just a desire for something made from wood. I even had a magnet-collecting couple who were drawn to the booth by the magnet display and were very excited when I said I could make boards for them just like the ones that I have, so they could better display their collection.
I work with clients to figure out the details, sending sketches or pictures of mockups, and making suggestions for appropriate woods based on color and durability requirements. I enjoy the creativity that comes from going outside my usual box, and it's a bonus if I get to learn something new along the way.
