Hi! I'm Maggie. Engineer by degree, 'jack of all trades' by profession, & aspiring woodworker at every opportunity.
I grew up tinkering with my dad in his workshop, and, as the saying goes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Needless to say, I've started to amass my own collection of tools & finally have a workshop to call my own (which may or may not take up the largest room in my little house in downtown Indianapolis). I love nothing more than losing myself for hours (or days) amidst a pile of wood chips & sawdust.
Which brings me here, ala Apple Doesn't Fall. I started this venture on my family's advice (apparently I can't--well, shouldn't--keep everything I make) and I'm humbled by the feedback I've gotten thus far. I'm really excited to see where it goes. All of my work is handcrafted using a mix of hand and power tools...from a variety of chisels to my prized antique delta bandsaw, and everything in between. Each piece is sanded down, buffed, and sealed with a tung oil/mineral oil/beeswax (food-safe) finish.
In addition to what is here, I make spoons, scoops, knives, forks, sporks, spatulas, muddlers & boards (in all shapes, sizes, woods + engraving/inlay options), and am always open to custom orders & new ideas. Each piece is one of a kind...and still a little difficult to part with.
Take a look. I'd love to make you something.
