Cell phone stands and docking station

Cell phone stands and docking station

I introduced these in 2017 and they have been a hit.

You can place your phone either vertically or horizontally and charge it while it is in this stand. Don’t loose your phone on your desk anymore.

I can engraved your logo on it. I make these out of high grade 1/4″ cherry plywood. There are two pieces. You just slide the “leg” piece through and it provides a shelf for your phone. If you have a phone without a case you can put some rubber bands on the tabs to keep it from sliding. Most phones do not need anything.

There is a $20 engraving set-up fee.
Gift boxes add .75 each

Less than 100 price is $12.95
100+ price is $10

Retirement gift for a cat lover

Retirement gift  for a cat lover

This is another example. This one was for a cat lover who loved to garden. I learned that her favorite flower was Trillium and made it entirely out of wood. I turned a flower vase to put it in. Then I turned the common clay flower pot and perched the kitten on it. The cats are reaching for the flower. She actually loved to travel and had been all over the world. I cut out her favorite countries and attached them to three sides of the base. You can’t see those in this picture. As a cat lover myself you should have seen one of my first models. I had about 9 cats that increased in size it perfect increments going in a circle. Perhaps a future project?

Pharmacist retirement gift

Pharmacist retirement gift

This is a retirement gift I did recently. I was told there were five generations of pharmacists in the family. I knew there were probably far too many mortar and pestles in their gift collections! People come to me for gifts that will really make an impression.

After considerable thought this is what I came up with. Sparing you lots of details here are a few highlights. I decided the base could be like the tray they count pills on. I made the capsule and two “main” pills. I balanced it out with three small pills with the recipients name spelled out with one letter on each pill.

I like to hear about the person you are honoring. Let me think about some ideas on how to create a piece that will really surprise them and make them happy. Why do ordinary gifts when you can do extraordinary?

Spheres

Perfect for awards, trophies and unique gifts of appreciation.

This piece was about 6- 1/4″ tall, wide, and deep. It had a beautiful Curly Maple base with a Cherry Sphere. I would engrave on the base or engrave on a piece of metal and add that. I add a nice piece of leather like material on the bottom of all sculptures. When you set it on a table it exudes quality. It’s a very different feeling than a wood piece with nothing or little silicone or felt patches.

Something like this would be in the $150-$175 range.
