Crosby’s Cuttings, Charleston, SC

I retired from the Army as well as from the civilian side of the Army Corps of Engineers. I now do events like Festival in the Park where I sell items I make on a wood lathe. I create unique Game Calls, writing instruments, shaving brushes, razors, wine stoppers, seam rippers, letter openers and a variety of other hand crafted items. I use a variety of wood including specialty wood from places of historical significant. These woods include

• Wood from the Angel Oak on Johns Island. This wood was given to me by the City of Charleston when the tree was trimmed.
• Deck wood from the USS Missouri, the USS North Carolina, the USS New Jersey, the USS Los Angeles, and the USS Yorktown
• Wood salvaged from the barn of General “LightHorse” Harry Lee in Dumfries, VA. He who was the father of Robert E. Lee.
• Wood from a 100+ year old Camphor Tree that was removed from the Anchorage House in Beaufort. The Anchorage House was built in 1774, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
• Irish Bog Wood which is over 5,000 years old and is the oldest workable wood in existance
• Pens made from recycled whiskey barrels from a variety of different brands such as Pappy Van Winkle, Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, ETC.
