In 1990, in a 7th grade wood shop class, I fell in love with the scroll saw.  In that class, I invented my first wall mounted jewelry display for my mother as a gift for her birthday to showcase the beautiful jewelry she had collected over the years living abroad.  


A decade later, after college and falling into a career in the hedge fund industry, I began to feel a pull toward more creative endeavors and it wasn’t long before I assembled a basement workshop and opened up an Etsy shop to start selling my new designs, turning my own original drawings and patterns into three-dimensional, functional art made out of wood.

The first thing I ever made on a scroll saw in my 7th grade woodshop class in 1990 was this elephant box stand.  I keep this old project in my work shop to remind me of that spark ignited so long ago.

External cuts - this time lapse video shows the exterior shape of the design getting cut on the scroll saw.

Internal cuts - This time lapse video shows how the internal openings are cut.  First, I drill holes and then I’m able to insert the blade to cut out the inside openings of a design.
