about us

This is who we are. A little story about us.

Wood Owl Original Designs is a small woman owned woodworking business that creates art primarily from downed trees and rescues wood from the wood pile, or recycles reclaimed barn wood. Occasionally we receive wood that someone has sent from another state, just so we can donate to their special cause. The Wood Owls Secret Shop is located just east of Ithaca NY and the Wood Owl never sleeps.

A little bit about the craft.

The art is both lathe turned and hand carved or a combination of both.  The wood tells the story and the characteristics determine the transformation. The creations are now crossing boundaries as tools and different woods are added to the arsenal. Keep your eyes out for new art designs almost weekly.
