Those are superb.

Are you guys located near Lake Wallenpaupack? I used to go there every year as a kid.
Thank You!!
We used to have a Lot with a Mobile Home & a Boat slip, at Wallenpaupack.
It's about 80 miles North of My Den.

Is he into selling and shipping any of these incredible works?

He sells a lot of these things on ETSY, and some more locally.

Great work! I love that cutting board!
Jim
Thank You Jim!!
Yeah, his cutting boards are expensive, but they're all End Grain.
Many in stores are "Edge Grain".

I've been a woodworker all my life Bear and I gotta tell you, that's some damned fine work right there. Super attention to detail and great mixes of wood. Just curious, does Bethany do the artwork on the ocean themed pieces? I believe you mentioned once that she's a very talented artist.

Robert
Thank You Robert!
No, Bethany stays out of the shop pretty much. She has her own places in their house. She went from Beautiful Decorative Cakes to Scenic Paintings, and now painting Wild Animals & Pets for people.

you say he's on ETSY, What is the shop name? I tried off the tag, but maybe I'm just not reading it right?
I put a Link in my Original Post now.
And the one Jake posted in Post #11 will get you there too.

I had a roommate many years ago (carpenter by trade) that turned out wood bowls very much like your son's stuff. He asked me if I thought he could sell them in a store somewhere. I told him that they belonged in an art gallery, not Target. Same goes for Bear Jr.'s work.

Thank You Mike!!
Appreciate the Compliment.

Those are really incredible. The added colors too really enhance these. I've mentioned before how talented your Family is, and it really shows. Thanks for sharing. I have literally no woodworking skills, lol. And it makes me appreciate the attention to detail much more.

Thank You Mike!!
I should have mentioned, all of the colors in these Pieces are the Natural colors of the individual Species of Woods.
No Stains or colorings have been used.
And Thanks for the Like, Mike.

That makes it more incredible! I had no idea that's the natural colors of the wood. I learned something, today's a good day.

Wow, those cheese boards look beautiful. I have a friend getting married in November, he is from Eastern PA - I think I know what he is getting as a wedding gift.

Yup---Purpleheart, Redheart, Yellowheart, Cocobolo, Paduak, Bubinga, etc are some of the woods he uses for accents. No stains needed for their Bright colors.

Well i have to say, he is refining them very well. And 3rd gen. woodworker, very nice . And he at least had the knowledge from family to gather from, just knowing the tools ,how to use and the skills to cary on with them
Well done
Tried to get my son to work with me , not his thing, Too early to get up and carpentry is not always a clean job. At least thats what i think he thinks. But he does like to cook . At least he took that part of my life, lol
