First Show of 2016!

I’m Getting Ready for the First Show of 2016!
Shop owners make certain to stop by and see my work along with many other artists and craftsmen at the Market Square’s Gallery. Running from February 7th to February 9th at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania.
This is a great opportunity to buy unique handmade American crafts and artwork for your customers! Since 1989, the heart of Market Square Shows has been and always will be American-made and artist-inspired products and the opportunity to meet the artisans who actually create the merchandise.

Carriers lined up and ready for the show!

craftsman boxes

Two size #7 boxes. One has a clear finish over maple and quartersawn pine – similar to how boxes may have looked coming out of the Brothers workshop a century or two ago. The other, using the same material, has been given an antique finish and the tacks darkened in an attempt to show a century or two of age. Do you have a preference?

handmade cat bed

A new (old) product for 2016 – a pet bed for your cat or small dog! I haven’t made any of these since the late 90’s when I made them for a couple of specialty businesses. I dusted off the patterns and will be making a few this year!
