I began Stave Designs in October 2009 with a couple of tea light candle holder designs for the holiday season. With recommendations and ideas from friends and former customers I began creating some of the pieces you see on my website. Half of the time I have a picture in my head of what I want the final piece to look like, and along the way the end products turn out much differently than I had first envisioned.
As an artisan I am constantly striving to create new items that incorporate every piece of the barrel into the end product. Very rarely do I use wood products that are not from a wine barrel so as to maintain the uniqueness and one of a kind feel that you get with each piece created.
You may see similar products in the market place however I am confident that my affordable pricing and attention to detail is unmatched. I stand by every piece that I create and know that you will too. All items I create are handmade using nothing more than a few different sanding tools, a drill and stain products. No two creations will ever be the same due to the unique shape of each barrel stave, so attention to detail and open minded thinking play a big roll in the design and creation process.
