Dennis Hensley

I have always enjoyed whittling, but started doing it more when I injured my arm for a second time. Carving became good therapy not only mentally but also as therapy to strengthen my arm. My charms are all handmade from trees where I live that are either dead or are already being removed. After making several jewelry pieces I decided to try some spoons and that eventually evolved into a collection of other hand carved kitchen tools. My brother decided to help out by hand turning bowls, cups, etc using a wood lathe. We hope you enjoy our creations!

I started crafting early on by doing macramé and sewing for friends, then people started buying items.

I like being outdoors and I am a motorcycle enthusiast. By being outside in nature , my interest in stones and leather grew. I have been in business since 2013 and currently there are two local shops carrying my merchandise.

I look forward to seeing you at The BRACA shows and will be happy to help you with any special orders as well.
