Bryan Kelly ~ Woodworking

IMG_5360
Bryan grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area where he still lives with his wife, Penny.  He was always interested in woodworking and in furniture making. “In my teens and through college I worked with my brother-in-law who was a home construction contractor. I learned much of this trade through this hands-on experience.  During this time, I continually read and developed my wood working knowledge and skills”.
Bryan attended Baldwin Wallace University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Sociology. After several years of teaching, he changed careers and entered the business field as a computer analyst and then opened an office in Cleveland for a software company.
While traveling those career paths, he never lost his love of wood working and 21 years ago opened his own business, building heirloom quality furniture and wood pieces in various styles from traditional to contemporary.  He enjoys working with customers to make their vision into a functional work of art.
Bryan uses unique woods and finishes to create one-of-a kind pieces. He also offers instruction on a variety of wood topics.
His work has been featured in the Tauton Press Fine Wood Working Magazine
and in the Cleveland Plain Dealer Magazine.

 

 

 

 

Roger Edgerly ~ Woodworking

 

IMG_3777 Upon retirement from Sandusky City Schools, where he was a teacher and a coach, Roger started building US Post Office banks for his grandchildren, and they love them.

Roger’s US Postal banks are hand constructed from American hardwoods; oak, maple, and hickory.  Each is fitted with a genuine US Post Office box door that has either a key or a working combination to open.  The PO box doors that Roger incorporates into his banks are generally made of brass and were used by the postal system from the 1890’s through the 1960’s.

These US Post Office banks make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, or any other special occasion!

Roger is a local artist who makes his home in Huron with his wife.

Michael Stadul ~ Woodworking

Michael has been crafting wood items for nearly 50 years along with his wife Ann Daniels, who contributes to the projects with her great sense of decorative style.

“We create a number of quality wood items from driftwood collected from Lake Erie and other sources, including barn wood. Our pieces are whimsical, practical, aesthetic and functional. They will work with just about any décor, and are ideal to enhance your own home or to give as gifts. Much of our work can be modified to meet individual preferences for special orders”.

Michael’s driftwood trees, coasters, and barnwood table are a welcomed addition to the shop!
