Unique cheese and serving boards crafted from highly figured domestic and exotic woods. Proceeds donated to a number of non profit organizations on Cape Cod that work to preserve, educate and foster conservation.
I love woodworking and am also a big fan of non profit organizations that rescue and rehabilitate wildlife, educate people about marine environments and the threats to them, and contribute valuable research to preserve and protect habitats and species. Most of the items I make represent a non profit organization. When you purchase from Off The Beam, all of the proceeds from the sale minus just the cost of wood are donated to the non profit the item represents. You may see something you like and find it has sold out, this is especially true of the shark items, feel free to email me and I'll let you know when the next batch will be available. Everything here is hand crafted and finished with food grade mineral oil and beeswax. I use only responsibly harvested lumber from a local source, and am careful to package items for shipment with as little plastic as possible, usually only the packing tape. If you want something and don't see it, or just want to say hello, email me at email@example.com. Thanks for stopping by!
newest additions and news
I've been busy in the shop with a few things, one was an elephant for a friend at my "real" job in the ER. Then a friend asked me to make an Orca for her friend (which I enjoyed and will probably do again) and now I'm working on a wooden book. That has oddly been the biggest challenge yet, because it will not have any carved animals on it. I have made and remade the thing about 5 times, because the wood just isn't speaking to me. It'll be done soon I think, and i'll get back to whales, sharks, birds and whatever else. Update: The wooden book is done and on it's way to it's new home. I am now gearing up to add new things to the shop for summer sales. There will be plenty of sharks coming soon, lanterns, and some new goodies as well.
