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

COVID 19 announcement So, wow. I know everyone is dealing with social distancing and huge changes. Some of you have been laid off and are trying to figure out how to home school your kids and pay bills. I'm certain the non profits have seen a sharp decline in donations and are also scrambling to cover expenses, just as baby animal season is starting. I would love to be in the shop more, carving, and will when I get a day off and am not to beat from the day job (day/evening/night job). Some of you already know I'm a nurse on the front lines of this thing, caring for sick patients in an ER and up on some of the critical floors. This virus beats the heck out of people. It is difficult to describe what we are dealing with in hospitals right now. All I can say is listen to the warnings and stay home as much as possible. You don't want this thing. I don't want this thing and will be so glad to take off the heavy gear and get back to carving critters in the shop. If you can, support some of the non profits that are struggling hard to do what they do. Be well and stay safe everyone! Sheri the pictures below are of me in the PPE we have to wear. The heavy mask and shield is for when we go into rooms with known covid+ infection. We also wear a tyvek suit. We all look like Star Wars Storm Troopers, which is both fun and a horror. I am grateful to work in a place that has done everything possible to get us this gear. Take care, lets make this go away!
