Its been a while

Hello everybody,

  Sorry its been a while since I have posted, I had some major home repairs to take care of but now that all of that is taken care of I am back in the shop making sawdust.

  I will be at the imadeitmarket show Chili with the works at the South Side Works on April 14. Come on down and support local artists. I will have many new pieces at the show and as always custom orders are welcome.

  The latest piece I made was for a very close friend, brother from another mother, who is in the hospital right now but getting the care he needs and he will  be home soon. Get well soon brother!!!!

Last min. Christmas order

  I got an email this past Wed. from Alex. Alex saw my work at the imadeit for the holidays show in Bakery square and wanted to buy a few pieces as Christmas gifts but the person who the gifts were for was with Alex. So Alex took one of my cards and placed an order with DSH Woodworks.

  Alex and I emailed a few times to work out the details because Alex wanted the pieces for Christmas and they would have to be shipped. Being that each piece at DSH Woodworks is handmade one at a time it was going to be close. I worked out how long shipping would take and worked backwords from there to see if I could even fill Alex's order. I figured the latest I could ship them out to get there before Christmas would be Monday, so that gave me four days to make the three pieces Alex wannted.

  Time to make sawdust!!!!

  After some long hours in the shop(I love doing that : )) I got the three pieces done and they are packed and ready to ship tomorrow.

  Here are the pieces Alex ordered..... Bike 1, Bike 2 and a hanging lantern. They turned out great and I hope Alex enjoys giving them for Christmas.

Last min. orders are stressful, especially when they are being placed to give as gifts, not only gifts but CHRISTMAS gifts the week before Christmas. BUT last min. orders show you what you are made of. It shows you how much you actually can work, how creative with your time you can be, it helps you find short cuts that you might not have figured out before, it takes away the excuse of "I don't have time".  This order was VERY fun to complete!!! I learned alot, not only about my craft but about myself as well.

  Thank you for your order Alex!!!!

Enjoy and stay tuned for whats next.

Antler plaques

 This order came from a co-worker, yes I have a day job, thats how I pay the He ordered three antler mount plaques. He even had a pattern for me to use. These plaques could be used for any type of award, antler mounts, etc...

  The plaques are $25 ea. They can be stained any color you choose and if there is a different shape you would like please put that in your custom order.

Enjoy and stay tuned for whats next

Celtic Cross

  I met a woman at the imadeit for the holidays show at Bakery Square. She wanted a Celtic Cross, she came to my table just as someone else was walking away with the last one I had at the show. No worries tho because here at DSH Woodworks we take orders as well as custom orders. She placed an order and a week later I sent it out. I hope she enjoys her cross as much as I enjoyed making it.

  Thank you for your order Jennifer

Enjoy and stay tuned for whats next!!!

DSH Woodworks in Carmel, IN

  I got a call a couple weeks ago from a woman(Danielle) in Carmel, IN who found me by doing a search online. She placed an order for two guitar cutouts. She is making a box for her nephew and wanted to put a guitar on each side of the box. She said she looked everywhere for guitars but could not find exactly what she was looking for, until she did a search and found exactly what she was looking for here at DSH Woodworks. We talked about what type of guitar she would like, size, etc... She chose the Les Paul guitars, unfinished because she is going to paint them to make them match the box they are going on.

  I made the guitars that weekend and shipped them out to her early in the week. Well she got them on Friday and couldn't be happier, which makes me happy. I can't wait to see her final project!!! I will post photos of  her finished project when I get them from her. For now here are the guitars I made for her. Each guitar is about 18inches long and 1/4inch thick.

  We aim to please here at DSH Woodworks. As I have said before if there is something you are looking for but don't see it on the site don't let that stop you from calling or emailing me, I am sure that I can make what you are looking for. Custom orders are always fun to do and when the customer is happy with their piece it makes all the hard work worth it.

  Thanks again Danielle!!! I look foward to working on other projects with you.

  Enjoy, and stay tuned for whats next.
