The Creative Crafters

About Us

Originally we started Crafting to give gifts - especially for High School graduates. We wanted to give a unique gift, but some of the graduates went away to college so it needed to be different and useful. We made a simpler clock that could be taken with them to college. Eventually we 'graduated' to what you see in our shop and on this site. My son got interested in woodworking and an Art known as Intarsia.
