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, clock parts or flameless candles 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 and feather items, feel free to email me and I'll let you know when the next batch will be available. Everything here is hand carved 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. I often add new things to the shop, so check back occasionally and see what's new, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by! Sheri

Time flies! It has been a busy auction season. I made items for National Marine Life Center, Center for Coastal Studies, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, A Place Called Hope, Wildcare Cape Cod and others. I will be doing something new and added a category called "just for fun". Sometimes I just feel like carving whatever...a sunset, lighthouse, sea bass, a sunflower or whatever else.. Proceeds from these things will go to getting some newer tools in the shop so I can be a little more productive. One tool that I plan to get soon is a drum sander, it will allow me to spend more time carving critters and less time with an orbital sander in my hand for 4-6 hours sanding boards smooth as I am doing now. And more critter carving means more items made that will benefit the non profits we all love. Happy summer!
