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 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 items, feel free to email me and I'll let you know when the next batch will be available. Everything here is hand crafted 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. If you want something and don't see it, or just want to say hello, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for stopping by!
newest additions and news
Auction season is winding down, and I've decided to make September "right whale month". For those of you following the plight of these animals, you may be aware that 14 North Atlantic Right Whales have turned up dead over the summer. Reports come in daily about the causes of their demise, and so far humans are to blame for most of the deaths. These whales have died from ship strikes and entanglements. Sadly, a whale rescuer from Campobello Island in Canada was killed after freeing and entangled whale, leaving many in his community stunned and heartbroken. There has been far too much tragedy this summer. I aim to merely help those helping these whales. I will be making as many new Right Whale Items as I can in the month of September and donating the proceeds from the sales to Center For Coastal Studies, The New England Aquarium and also the Campobello Whale Rescue Team in Canada. Watch the shop as items become available. And for the shark lovers, stand by. I will be making lots of sharks in time for Holiday gift giving. Peace to all!
