Our Ebony Stain is Eye-Catching

This custom carved oval Serving Tray was crafted from cherry hardwood and finished in our ebony stain.  Our clients commissioned us to create this unique gift which they in turn presented to their family for use on their houseboat.  Personalized with their crab motif, location, and family surname, this Serving Tray makes a stunning presentation.

The Well-Equipped Veterinarian

There is great value in the well-trained, experienced, kind, compassionate veterinarian, as well as tremendous value in the well-equipped veterinary facility. Our custom carved Groom Boxes will serve the industrious veterinarian both in the clinic and on a house-call. Our Groom Boxes make the perfect gift for the new graduate with a degree in veterinary medicine, as well as a memorable gift for the seasoned veterinarian in honor of a milestone.

We create our wooden Groom Boxes to work hard right along with you, but we hear they are equally up to the task of looking lovely on a hearth, in a foyer, or alongside a sofa table.

Welcome to South Carolina

We are excited and grateful to be settling into our new location in Richburg, South Carolina.  Our lovely Chester County is so well situated.  We’re a pleasant drive from Charlotte, Columbia, Spartanburg, Greenville, Asheville, and Charleston.  We are unpacking and organizing our home and woodworking shop . . . and we feel quite at home in our new place.  We’re looking forward to exploring and visiting the many historic sites of the stunning Carolinas.

Although we still have work to do, the shop is mostly up and running.  Give us a call and let’s talk about creating a future family heirloom for you and yours.

It’s Moving Day . . . Once Again

We’ve been praying, planning, and preparing for this move for some time now.  We pooled our organizational skills, strengths, and forethought.  We added a bit of encouragement, joy, and perseverance to the mixture.  And, . . . we’re still exhausted.  I’m convinced that no matter how much you prepare, there’s still a great deal to do at the last, last minute. I mean, we really couldn’t pack the espresso machine ahead of time. It had to be done at the last minute.

Gathering Wood's Moving Day

Yes; we are moving again. When we came to Kentucky from California, we hadn’t any plans of moving again. We don’t always know what our futures hold.

Our family and our woodworking business will soon be in South Carolina.  We’ll have the woodshop up & running soon. Give us a call and let’s create something beautiful.

Equestrian Tack Armoire

Give the gift of storage –

This tack cabinet has room for everything but the horse.  Our client came to us with a limited budget and a wish list of features for this custom tack cabinet.  The tack armoire was ordered “unfinished” so that our client could enjoy the process of painting the cabinet with the recipient of this thoughtful gift.

Everything on the wish list was incorporated into the design – right down to the heavy-duty swivel casters.  With two saddle racks and two bridle brackets, it’s going to be a breeze to get organized.  There is plenty of storage throughout and a hasp lock to keep it all secure.

What do you need to help get your barn or stable in order?  Our Groom Boxes can certainly help keep your grooming tools tidy.  Or, perhaps you need the whole tack armoire.  Contact us and let’s get started designing your tack cabinet.

Personalized Gifts for the Bride & Groom

There are so many wonderful items which would make memorable gifts for a newly married couple.  A couple’s wedding registry would certainly provide well-wishers with an abundance of suggestions.  Having a gift custom crafted and personalized is undoubtedly a wonderful way to celebrate the Bride & Groom’s union, as well.  Our Serving Trays can be custom carved with the couple’s surname or their monogram to commemorate their special day.  The Serving Tray’s surface area is your blank canvas waiting to be carved with your unique design.

This recent creation featured the Bride & Groom’s names, along with their surname and the year of their family’s establishment.  We hope the lovely couple enjoys their new Serving Tray for years to come – in serving one another and practicing hospitality.

All the best to Elissa & Joseph Maxwell.  We wish you peace & joy.

Congratulations from all of us here at Gathering Wood.
