Ron and Christine have been handcrafting wooden kitchen utensils, breadboards and furniture for more than 25 years. They work with sustainable domestic hardwoods, specifically Mesquite, Cherry and Black Walnut. They use the natural flaws in the wood to inlay turquoise, malachite, river rock and other stones. Utilizing the inherent natural cracks and knots they are able to use really interesting pieces of wood that otherwise would never see their full potential. "Everything we create is fully functional and is meant to be used. Often we hear from customers that our work is too pretty to use but we disagree. We feel that life is too short not to surround yourself with beauty."
