WOOD CRAFTS

          Western North Carolina has an abundance of hardwoods available to the craftsman – oak, black walnut, cherry, basswood, and maple, all lend themselves to the creativity of the local craftsman.         

          A Western North Carolina native crafted most of the furniture in our store, which you are at liberty to purchase.  Most pieces are made of Pine or Oak, traditional woods used by our early settlers. 

          Stan and Sue Jennings  make wonderful wooden utensils.  These spoons, ladles, forks, and butter knives are made from cherry and meant for everyday use in your kitchen.

We also carry cutting boards and cheese boards by Stuart Simmons.  Each board is made from a variety of native hardwoods.

THE BIRDS

          Our own flock of birds attests to the incredible talents of our local craftsmen.  From Basswood they carve the songbirds of our region:

                             The Cardinal, our NC state bird

                             The Carolina Wren

                             Mockingbirds

                             Gold Finch

                             Woodpeckers

                             Owls

                             Thrashers

                             Hummingbirds

They are so realistic you expect them to sing!  And one of the carvers,  the late Phil Brown,  has birds on display in the Smithsonian Institution.
