I’m sure you’ve been in the position of trying to find a gift for someone who doesn’t want much. Well that’s me every year looking for something for my grandpa. He’s a bit of a minimalist, so anything that might become just another bit of clutter is off the table. I always look for something that is both personal and useful.

A few years ago I decided that he needed a sign for the gate on the road up to his little farm in Eufaula, Oklahoma. I looked and looked for somebody who could make a one-of-a-kind carved wood sign on a fine slab of wood and came up with nothing. I had my mind set on a sign, so I decided I’d have to learn quickly and do it myself. I could do that. What could be better than something I made myself? Turns out, nothing.

When the sign was up, everyone loved it and requests for similar signs immediately started coming in – from my mother to the local feed store. And now here I am a few years later making signs for grandpas, moms and feed stores all across the country.

When I’m not in the wood shop, I’m most likely hanging out with my daughter, Bonnie. We put out a weekly podcast and make cute mini-movies. You can find both of those things at our website www.bonnie.pizza.
