    I received the spalted hackberry salad bowl today (#491), it’s absolutely stunning! I purchased it for my daughter’s bridal shower. I know she and her future husband will enjoy it for years to come. Thanks!

  • Mary Rose says:

    Absolutely amazing work! Very beautiful.

  • Steve,
    I can not thank you enough for the BEAUTIFUL bowls that you donated to the silent auction for the Will Golf 4 Kids event to benefit the Arkansas Childrens Hospital. They are SO Amazingly Beautiful!! Everyone who has seen them can not get over their beauty and craftmanship! The bowls are going to be such a unique treasure this year to our auction! Your kindness and hard work are so much appreciated! You are saving children’s lives! God bless you!!

    I’ve bought 4 bowls…so far, because the beauty and quality is awesome! You’ve been able to make the most out of the character of the grain, and the shape of the bowl. The quilted maple is 3D! It is almost as though each bowl has it’s own “show” going on! When you say it has a “gallery quality finish”, you aren’t kidding! I’ve never seen wood that is so silky smooth, and looks “wet” which makes the grain and character really stand out! I will be purchasing more…the craftsmanship is 1st rate, and the prices are very reasonable. Thank you!

  • Sarah-Daughter says:

    Your website looks great Dad! I’m sooo proud of you. I’ve been telling everyone I know to check out your site (and buy something!) I even posted your link on my facebook page today. Your work is so very impressive and it floors me how you can turn a piece of wood into a work of art. I love how some of them shine like gold. You continue to impress me every day. Love you! XOXOXOXO

  • Bill says:

    I gifted one of your bowls to my wife for Valentines Day and she LOVED it! We are past the jewelry (at least I am) and chocolate routine for VDay and the change-up was a hit. Your wood selections and attention to detail never cease to amaze me, or Jane.

    Just saw the new maple platter – W O W! I can’t wait to see what you post next.

    Thanks again!

    Clean, quality craftsmanship, brother – Beautiful, just beautiful. Like you, I am particularly drawn to the utilitarian function and strong form of the bowl (spent an early year in college ceramics throwing nothing but bowls – hundreds of them). However, there’s something magical in the dazzling surfaces and natural warmth provided by wood. I understand your passion.

    Form, function, strength and natural beauty – can’t miss.

    Thanks for the tour – your website’s a real treat. I’ll be back.

  • Jarrett Burr says:

    Incredible work! I love turning too, Steve, and hope to produce some pieces as remarkable as yours someday. Next time you’re in, get ready because I’m going to pick your brain about your techniques! Hope ya’ll are doing well.

  • Diane Carpenter says:

    Steve, amazing workmanship not to mention the great website! I love the platters, hollow art pieces and the bowls. I hope to own one soon….soon as I make up my mind.


  • John & Nancy Baker says:

    Steve, your craftsmanship and artistry should and will be admired by everyone! The cutting board and puzzle are of extraordinary quality. Nancy and I are in the process of redecorating around the house and you have and will be a great help. Thank you for everything! John & Nancy

  • Bill says:

    Thanks again for the beautiful puzzle. I gave it to my wife for Christmas at it was a big hit! The entire family passed it around throughout the holiday and came up with some very interesting designs.

    Thanks again!

    Daddy, I have always known that you were talented; talented at everything you have ever attempted (especially making great kids). But I am not exaggerating when I say how impressed and inspired I am by what you have started here. Your craftsmanship is nothing short of amazing, and this website makes ME want to buy your pieces, and I live with you! The time and love that you put into your craft and this website are greatly apparent, and I am so proud of you for pursuing it wholeheartedly. I know you will be a success. XOXOXO

  • Steve, I am thrilled that you have decided to pursue a life long hobbie that highlights such an array of craftsmanship, and fine art. May you retire some day with more business than the day is long! Very impressive site and artwork. Your friend, Greg-

    Your bowl draws rave reviews from guests who see it displayed on the dining room buffet, when it’s not filled with delectable foods on the table.
