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 finished some shark items for Atlantic White Shark's Great White Gala, and now I'm on to making some things for National Marine Life Center's Mermaid Ball. You may notice some items in my shop are definitely not made of wood. The sea glass bracelets are something I don't do often, but since NMLC is having their ball, I figured folks might want a little summertime bling. I will also be making a few for Wildcare Cape Cod, with fun colors and sweet little owl beads. These are fun little gifts for summer, and help me throw a little money at all the busy non profits who need donations to meet expenses. My hope is that you'll like what you see and then visit them online, learn about the great work they do, and support them all. You can visit them from my "links" page. Keep your eye on the shop, follow on Facebook or Twitter! When I add new things to the shop, I post it. After the busy auction season, I will be adding new things to the shop. Wall mounted wine racks with your favorite marine creatures, some new clocks, and several other fun new things will be added in the coming months.. I will also be working hard on making new lanterns, even shark lanterns! stay tuned... Have a great, safe summer!
