I started making wood items when our house was burnt down by a couple of arsonist. I had a lot of admires of my work and decided to take it to another level. I started Walker Wood Products in 1983, making crafts for shows and from there I started to put my products in consignment shops. I had to start a normal job at a lumber company to help with finances. It takes a lot to make a living just doing crafts no matter how good you are. Now, with the help of my wife, I am able to do it full time. I absolutely love it. I am confident that you will too.
In my shop, I usually start with an idea and put it on paper or a block of scrap wood which ever is most convenient. I look in my inventory of raw wood to see what best suits my Idea. I cut the pieces that makes up my project. I sand, router, drill and sand some more. Then I take my pieces to the finish room and polyurethane and or stain. Sanding between coats. I usually apply Three coats, sanding between each one, and when every thing dries, which takes 12 hours between each coat, I apply a coat of hand rubbed wood wax. Then it gets assembled.
I still do a few shows, consignments and online selling. Most of my work is custom work. I enjoy working with everyone who wants to create their personal gift using my talents. Its rewarding knowing my pieces will soon be your family’s treasure. I Now have wall decor in all states hanging in special places and made for special people like you.
