A Great First Weekend!

Huzzah! What a splendid first weekend at the Faire! It was so wonderful connecting with our friends and neighbors in the Renaissance Faire Marketplace over the weekend. Sales were good but seeing our Faire family was even better! Looking forward to the next 5 weekends at Faire. We will have some more products for our […]

See Us At The Renaissance Pleasure Faire!

It’s been a rough few years but we are happy to be back at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire! Come by our booth, say hello, and check out all the great products we have. Sev has been hard at work, turning out some gorgeous wood crafts. We hope to see you soon!

Is Hardwood Really Hard?

Many of our patrons ask us why Sev uses hardwoods instead of softwoods to make his products. Actually, most woodworkers prefer working with hardwoods. Sev says that working with hardwoods is ideal because they have a greater range of colors, textures, and grain patterns than softwoods. These variations makes hardwoods the ideal wood for the […]

Reuse, Recycle, Rethink, Repurpose, Reinvent

Even though we primarily work with wood, we’re always thinking of new products we can sell and new materials we can play with.  Recently, Sev purchased a box of old, used watch parts in our desire to sell more steampunk-related items.  It’s our intention to embellish our bottlestoppers with some of these parts, as well […]

The Insanity of Fall

Spring and Fall are our busiest times of year.  Add the approaching holidays to mix, and Fall might win out over Spring as the craziest time of year for us.  Currently, we’re busy as ever preparing for Stan Lee’s Comikaze, the comic book and pop culture convention taking place this weekend at the LA Convention Center.

There and Back Again: A Woodworker’s Tale by Sev

Okay, so Sev really isn’t the one who writes these posts, BUT I couldn’t resist the Tolkien title reference.  We recently came back from the Northern California Renaissance Faire that takes place at Casa de Fruta in Hollister, CA.  We were just guest artists there, so we only stayed one weekend.  Aside from almost being […]
