A Touch of Wood
                                                                      by Tony

A Touch of Wood           The native hardwoods that surround my home here in the southern tier of New York State are the inspiration for my woodworking. I have a great love for their colors, grains, and properties, and especially like combining contrasting woods in each piece.
          In addition to making turned vases and candlesticks, one of my specialties is inlaying custom monograms and designs into wall plaques, serving trays, and bowls.

           I usually have some finished pieces in stock, but for custom work, it's always best to plan ahead. If you want to order a very special personalized gift for a Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary, or Corporate Gift, contact me well in advance, and I can give you an estimated delivery date. As a rule-of -thumb, 12 to 16 weeks is my normal cycle to create custom pieces.
