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

The new year is here! I'm going to be switching things up a bit in the shop. Some of the non profits don't get much attention from me in the form of donations because sometimes items that represent that non profit are not popular with the general public. Take the Case of Right Whales and Ocean Sunfish. Those of us that love them, love them. But other people scratch their heads and cannot wrap their brains around the lumpiness of right whales and the weirdness of ocean sunfish. Lets face it, some creatures just don't get the love. To solve the problem, I'm going to occasionally carve "because I felt like it" items and then choose one of the non profits that get less attention from me. This way I get to carve things I've been wanting to carve (like elephants, bison, orcas and dolphins, mustangs, and whatever else) and the non profits that get neglected will get donations. I will continue to carve sharks, feathers, right whales, and all of the other things I currently do, but once in a while there will be an oddity and why not. Look for items in the "because I felt like it" section and get to know some excellent new non profits. Happy holidays to everyone, and have an excellent New year! -S
