WoodNGoods on ArtFire makes amazing wooden creations!

WoodNGoods of Rosecommon, MI opened on 12-8-08.  This shop offers some of THE MOST AMAZING wooden scroll saw artwork, as well as wool mittens made from recycled sweaters.  The Studio Announcement reads: "Made in Michigan Wood Scroll Saw Art and More
I like to think of what I do as Painting with Wood. Many of my items have no coloring added - just the grain and natural color of the wood species. At times leather dyes are used along with the shaping of the wood to provide depth and interest. I will ship internationally, but because many countries will not allow wood items to be imported, you must contact me for shipping information. Thanks!"

Artisan Biography for WoodNGoods:

"I've been woodworking since the late 1990's, selling items at craft shows and over the internet. Some of my designs can be seen in Scrollsaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine!  The wood I use in my projects come from a variety of places (rarely from the big box stores):

* I went to a custom flooring store and was able to get a box of their cut-offs, saving them from being burnt or put into the landfills. The exotic woods I picked up there are beautiful in color, but I don’t always know the species.

* The Redwood I use in projects was salvaged from when our church was remodeled back in the early 1990’s. Some of the original Redwood logs were removed from the church, and I was able to get some of the lumber!

* I also use other reclaimed or scrap wood in my projects."

I really like the fact that she recycles and reuses wood for her beautiful creations.  Somehow I think it gives the pieces more personality, and of course it keeps perfectly good wood out of our landfills.
