I am a visual artist and woodworker creating functional and character filled furniture and accessories using the many techniques I have accumulated over the years. I received my BFA in 1998 and have since done fine art, finish carpentry, cabinet installation, and faux finishing. I have been doing original furniture design and custom woodwork since 2010.
My goal and purpose is to combine these elements and skills to make functional beautiful furniture that is inviting as well as aesthetically pleasing.

Live Edge Walnut Magnetic Knife Racks. All Sold.

I've created a few more of these, as the myrtle version I had posted on my etsy site went viral last week. Two of these sold this morning. Actually, this one was the first to sell, no small wonder as the grain has the most WOW! of all of them.

Most of these are 16" long, height varies from 4 to 5 ".  

I created a channel in the backside of the piece to embed the magnets( I used ceramic Ferrite block magnets),  then  refilled the open space with more tight fitting pieces of walnut, which are glued into place for maximum strength.
