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, flameless candles or hardware 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
newest additions and news
news: I moved the woodshop from it's big area ion the first floor of the old tool mill where I rent a space to the second floor, to a space half the size or the original. I did this because I am working on finding a permanent space for the shop, ideally a barn or garage, and need to save my pennies. This means I am looking for a house close enough to the hospital where I have my "real" job, but far enough from neighbors that I don't make enemies when I turn on a saw or planer on a Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, the little shop on the second floor is just a few degrees warmer than a pizza oven in the summer, and so I have been avoiding the place entirely. I may occasionally go in and spend a day carving, especially if one of the non profits asks for an auction item. Hard to say no to the people who do amazing work rehabilitating wildlife, researching and protecting (and disentangling) whales, and protecting sharks, seabirds, seals and important wildlife habitats. If you are a non profit, email me and I'll get busy on an item for your event. To everyone else, my sincerest apologies. I promise I'll get back to work by mid-September. Enjoy your summer! -S
