Hey y'all...been a while since I posted. We are still operating-building,painting, refurbishing. Kimberly and myself welcomed our newest employee, 8lb 11oz Harper Bovee Gates, on August 22nd, so things have slowed in the shop.

But have not stopped.

I just got a new batch of "good" pallets in. I use these to make the tables pictured below. The tables sell for $125, and I can stain/paint them any color you request (I can also distress them for no additional charge.

If you would like to order one of these solid oak tables, message me here or give me a call at (228)342-1801.

Thank y'all!

Greetings, all! After a short vacation and a looooong shop overhaul, I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. After I complete this dining room chair repair for a friend I've known nearly all of my life, I will have some cool new signs coming out soon, along with a wine caddy, a coffee table, and Lord knows what else. First let me show y'all the table I recently completed for the Andersons (a couple of my favorite folks). The finish you see here is BURNT. That's right-I burnt the wood and then stained over it. It's hard to see, but there is a 2X4 running the length of the table and both benches, and it is resting inside of a piece of wood I hollowed out. This piece was indeed the best thing I have ever put out of the shop. You may order one built just the same, finished however you like, for $1899. It is named the Harper table, after my soon to be born baby girl. Thanks for looking!

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I've been on hiatus doing carpentry/remodeling jobs outside of the shop. However, Kimberly is almost halfway through her pregnancy, so it's time for me to move back to the nest. Since I've nearly finished with the nursery, I'm going to be putting out some new and exciting items for sale.

Pictured is an old dresser that we are converting to a changing table in anticipation of little Harper's arrival. If you have a piece you would like brought back to life, bring it to me and I can do something like what you see here.

We hope y'all have a great day!

Hey y'all...there's lots of excitement around the 'ol Workshoppe these days...pictured below is our treatment of "Old Glory". The first picture is before distressing ($110), and the second is after distressing ($125). Both versions are stunning.

Besides putting a little patriotism into your program, your purchase of one of our flags helps out a noble charity: The Wounded Warrior Project.

The Wounded Warrior Project raises awareness and enlists the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service members, helps severely injured service members aid and assist each other and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of these vets.

Every two months, Geppetto's will tabulate how much we take in from flag sales, then take 5% of that total and cut a check to WWP for that amount. It ain't much, but it's what we can do right now.

The next couple of pics are of a firewood box that I built the mother-in-law for Christmas. I'm so impressed with how it turned out, we are offering them for sale. It is incredibly sturdy, and would make a welcome addition to anyone's living room where logs and kindling are better hidden. I failed to snap a picture of it after I stained it, but will work on getting one this weekend. The box sells for $60 unfinished and $85 finished.

Lastly was just a fun little project. It's a raised dog bed for Charlie the Shop Hound. He loves being as close to the action as he can, and he's laying thigh-high when he's in the bed.

Hey y'all! We hope everyone had an incredible Christmas. Santa and the reindeer stopped by the shop; there was hardly any reindeer food left after that crew finished with it!

As soon as the field of blue is dry, I'm going to paint the stars on this beauty, and then distress it. After that, I will seal it, package it, and ship it to fill the hole on my customer's wall.

I just felt compelled to snap a photo now (before distressing) because the red, white and blue worn by Old Glory is...well...beautiful.

I really enjoy each and every flag I make. I think what I like most is that it makes me reflect on the men and women who have fought for, bled for, and died for, our flag. Their sacrifice is allowing me to sit here and type on my iPhone, listen to NFL football, drink a Rolling Rock and watch my lovely wife assemble a necklace holder.

Thank you, veterans, and may god bless you all

Ol' Colonel Reb dropped by the shop on his way to New Orleans to root for our Rebels in the Sugar Bowl. He only stayed long enough to polish off two mint juleps and to strike a pose for Kimberly to paint his portrait. I must say he ages extremely well.

You can take home this 28x20 piece of pallet art for a mere $45!

I also built 3 more 6-pack totes that I then handed over to her; she did an incredible job-especially on the tiger eye.

You can bring home one of these totes representing your favorite college or professional team for only $30. However, if you want FULL ART, which, is really something g to see, we will paint the rear of the tote with an additional logo for just $40!

These totes are super cool, folks. And...they carry beer!!!

I tried to explain to mommom and poppop that I was a BOXer...parents just don't understand.


FYI: We can now take payment in the form of credit cards!

Distressed Wooden U.S. Flags!

I just finished this pair of flags for a customer, and they came out so good, I nearly asked if I could refund one of them so I could keep it for our mantle lol. I never really "like" anything I put out, so that says a lot!

Each flag is constructed from reclaimed wood and measures 24"x 48". We also make a "sofa-sized" flag measuring 36" x 72".

This would make an ideal gift for the veteran or active duty service member that you love. Heck, it would make an ideal gift for anyone who loves the grand 'ol USA!

5% of the proceeds from each flag sold will be donated to the Wounded Warrior project. Order yours today and get it just in time for Santa to leave it under the tree on Christmas morning!

24"x 48" flag- $125
36"x 72" flag- $200
Beagle not included

I've heard every shop needs a "shop hound". Here's Charlieboy, enjoying his new title and the shipping blanket that accompanies it!

The Blue Fairy really knocked it out of the PARK with this snowman family! All construction and artwork was done by her!

The family is cool, but look closely at the "Merry Christmas" sign beneath them. It's flawless.

Add this display to your yard for just $45!

Hey! If you are any of the following:

-Expecting mother, father, or couple
-Grandparent to be
-Future Godparents
-An anxious brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, or BFF of someone awaiting a little bundle of joy


We built and painted this one last week for one of our customers, and it was a hit. Each sign measures roughly 17" wide by 26"y'all, and it prominently features the bambino's first initial, along with his/her first and middle names.

Attached at bottom is a smaller sign where baby's birth weight and birth length are recorded, along with date and time that he/she took that first breath! We leave this section blank, and we advise you to utilize either a paint pen or a sharpie to record everything. If you want to record the stats there temporarily, then return it to us for permanent recording, we would be more than happy to accommodate!

At $50, this sign is a dang fine deal. It is made of 100% real wood, and, after Kimberly paints/stains it, I seal it with 6-7 coats of shellac to give it a shine that will last past the baby's graduation...from Medical School!!!

Message us today so that we can begin yours!

We will be starting a contest tomorrow to name this cute family of four, so look for my post tomorrow!

The latest and greatest creation by the Blue Fairy herself!!! This incredibly enchanting 3 foot sign wishes all who lay eyes upon it happy fall with a southern drawl!

Who is that handsome, distinguished southern gentleman adorning that pallet wood??? By God, you're right! It's Colonel Reb! You can capture him, or any other school mascot, on a 40x32 pallet canvas for just $100!

An ideal gift for any football-lover with a man cave; shoot us a message and we will start on yours this weekend!

Oh...I almost forgot...

We just got our mounted Charlie head back from the taxidermist...isn't it lifelike?


Geppetto's would like to give a big Tiger paw high-five (high-four?) to Bay High for taking it to Richton on the Gridiron last Friday for a 26-12 victory...way to go, guys!!!
