A BLEND OF
CRAFTSMANSHIP & TECHNOLOGY
As you may have read we are located in rural Ohio; in our header picture you can see our solar array. Our workshop and our home are located on land from our family’s farm. Our grandfather, great grandfather used wind power from a windmill. Mary grew up watching the fields being plowed by actual horsepower, the windmill pumped water for the horses and cows in the pastures. A lot of craftsman ship was displayed in filling the needs of every member of the family as well as the farm work.
Today our workshop is located in a revitalized three bay auto body shop built and operated by Mary’s father. The solar array provides the power we need to supply our daily needs and run the machinery used to create our products.
Craftsmanship is still alive as we make our ideas come to life through designs drawn on paper, a prototype created, the draft then turned into a graphic design. The graphic is used to operate a laser cutter. The products are made of either wood, hard wood or acrylic. Sometimes other tools are needed to finish the laser cut pieces or to create a special accessory or other design piece. Most pieces are prepared, assembled and finished by hand. New techniques and tools are tried and added as they become useful.
The workshop has filled with wood, acrylic and a variety of both hand and technological tools to allow us to create our product. Our ideas oftentimes are way ahead of our production. We love crating our products and also filling custom orders for customers that bring us their ideas and needs.
This all blends our years of experience, talent brought to us by family interests as well as knowledge of the arts, crafts and technology gained by each family member. We are happy to create miniatures that meet the expectations of our customers.
