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

Welcome summer! The little woodshop on the second floor of the old tool mill is already hotter than Hades, but this year that isn't gong to stop me from carving as much as I can. Most of the non profits this little shop supports have had to cancel fundraisers and fund generating functions, and so I'll be carving when I can to help them along. I've fallen in love a bit with a new non profit called Newhouse Wildlife Rescue of Chelmsford. Find her on facebook and follow along. She rescued a pregnant porcupine who managed, despite her difficulties, to produce the cutest baby porcupine (called a porcupette, I have learned. Adorable) and later adopt another orphaned porcupette named Poppy. This story got me through some difficult days in the ER (yeah, I have a real job on the side.) I will still be carving whales, seals and all things ocean, but you will also start seeing other critters and more raptors. Stay well everyone! Sheri OTB
