About JRM Woodcrafts
Because each piece is made by hand, I can't take any shortcuts. I get pleasure out of seeing the end result. You can't get that from a machine that does the same thing over and over. What's the fun in that?
Each piece is glued, carved, sanded and stained to match the unique character of the wood. I want my pieces to last for generations.
When I look at a piece of wood, whether it's a log or a piece of lumber — its grain, knots and flaws — I see the beauty of what could be.
Behind the Craft
Each piece of wood determines what it was meant to be. The character of the grain, knots and flaws help determine its future.
Working with wood by hand takes patience and time. I can spend hours in my shop creating a piece, and then determine it's not going the way I want, and start over.
Sometimes, when I'm making a flag, I envision it waving based on the weather. If the wind is gently blowing, the flag has bigger waves, if it's windy, then the flag gets many of waves.
