Wood

Boxes © Rick Carter

Rick Carter has been interested in working with wood since his woodshop class in the 8th grade. He loves to see the beauty of the grain pop out as the wood is smoothed and finished. Since his retirement in 2010 he’s been able to work on his art several days a week.

He’s currently working on smaller items for the home that make thoughtful gifts. He’s using interesting hardwoods, including several species from Asia, Africa, and South America. All his woods are natural, with no stains or dyes. Rick can make larger items, such as butcher block tables, custom made to your specifications.
