Some recent cutting boards out of the shop!


Just a couple of sanity projects I’ve done recently. Doing lots of woodworking by hand on my bench makes me happy. Hope you all are finding your happy in these interesting times:)


Gluing up some old Doug fir for a new bar-sized table for Side Road Cafe. I love working with wood that was heading for the dumpster:)


Lots of cutting boards lately. It’s about all I have time to create with how busy cafe life is. But...

Still doing fun custom pieces of furniture and record shelves if anyone is in need.

Cheers, Tom Elston


This beautiful piece of Maple is not leaving my kitchen island. I am IN LOVE with the detail in the grain and the natural shape of this board.

We look forward to bringing our woodworking into our [email protected] Side Road Cafe.
See you soon!


Looking for some help around the house? Spring cleaning and organizing is my thing! Message for details.


It is spring, which means my nails won't look nice for the unforeseen future. Not that they ever really get a break. (No pun intended)

If you are looking for some inspiration in your garden feel free to send me a message.

Spring cleaning is one of my favorite ways to spend a day. In the garden or home. I will travel for work, negotiations can be made!


Love this custom book matched black walnut board. I want to keep this one..


Pre-Valentines Day sale. 10% off regular priced items.
Shipping available. Order here.


I love solving display issues for shops!
These little perfume bottles would fall over several times a day like dominos. Now you can sample these scents from Imaginary Authors at Lodestar Goods and not be "that guy" who knocks them all over, yet again!

Let us know if you have a display dilemma in your shop or home. We love the challenge!


These walnut hexagon earrings are headed to Indiana to find their pair of ears! These are a special order with niobium hooks for ears that react to metals. If you are wanting a pair of earrings and can't wear the silver plated hooks, let me know. Available upon request.
Shipping available


Some beautiful cutting boards about to be available. Stay tuned!

Chevron Oak Dangle Earrings

It's live. First run. What do you think? Wooden chevrons with chain link dangle earrings.


Our philosophy is "zero waste" when it comes to building and creating.
Tom makes cutting boards. I use his cut offs and make smaller things. Like these. Coming soon!


Tom and I designed and created these custom displays for our client and pals at Bees & Beans. Their candy bars are a delight, you should pick one up if you get a chance! Or go see them @ their events ( and stock up on some holiday chocolates!

Tom, Bullet, Winston and I have been working really hard on our recent "unplanned" remodel in our Hammond home! I look forward to ending this project so we can move on! I miss the creativity in our work we do for our lovely clients, like you!


Latest batch of boards. Love playing with local hardwoods.


Yesterday was the day of the spoon.
Today: earrings

Keep your eyes out for some new creations coming out of the shop this week. Tom is procuring more hardwood stock today!


A family effort: a very small budget, lots of head scratching, and hard work with salvaged and reclaimed materials is shaping this tired 10’ x 12’ shed into a cozy cottage in our backyard.


Fun cutting boards made from various hardwood scraps! The boys love helping with these.


A sneak peak at our space in Vintage Hardware, come see for yourself!
