NEW: We are moving our site to a new platform. With the new site we are starting a customer loyalty program. Start date to use the program is to be determined, however all purchases from October 2019 and after will be credited with a store credit. To take advantage of this you will have to log in through your prior account. (or if unable -call, text, or email us and we will get your records updated).
For every purchase made you will receive 5% of the product price you paid as a store credit for use on a future order. Store credit has no monetary value except as used to purchase on the website and cannot be redeemed for cash or transferred.
Also for those who checkout with PayPal any excess shipping paid less than $0.75 will be added to your store credit account. See explanation on payments below.
COVID-19 Update: As some know we operate a carving studio, Gallery, and physical store in Rhoadesville, VA. It is now open by appointment to the public. Just call or text us and say you'd like to come by, or if in the parking lot, that you would like to come in. We also continue to serve you on-line or by phone.

Please call to arrange time, product(s) desired and total cost.
Sign up for our newsletter below to know what is on sale. We anticipate a periodic sale of different products throughout the year. Some future sales will be for in store customers or newsletter subscribers only due to manufacturers restrictions.
Pricing: When we are permitted by the manufacturer, we provide a routine discount on all products up to 10% for everyone. In the event our listed price is greater than the "Retail Price" there is an error and our listed price is correct and the retail price is likely incorrect.
HELVIE: We will continue to carry the Helvie Kathy Overcash Series.

If you know of any OCCT or Flexcut item not listed that is on their websites we will order that for you on the next shipment. Order time is generally 30 days or less for OCCT and 1 week to 30 days for Flexcut. Just email, call or text us and tell us what you want. You save the same as our in-stock items.
GROBET Tools/Mastercarve Tools, King Henry Tools: We special order most any item listed on their sites for you at a generous price. NOTE: These orders may be shipped direct from the manufacturer to avoid having to absorb the extra cost to ship to us first, so shipping may not be able to be combined.
Our inventory is customer focused. If you would like us to special order any carving, train, or hobby item call or email and we will determine if that item is available to us.
Shipping: We usually ship the same or Next business Day. During January, April, July, and Mid-October to mid-November we will ship only once a week due to family commitments. If you need an exact shipping date please contact us.
Shipping rates are estimated and OFTEN overstate the shipping (especially on books). We will refund any difference that is substantially over our actual costs. On Credit Card Orders your card is charged after we have packed and weighed your order so we can charge you exact shipping costs and refund any excess.
On PayPal orders the process has become more difficult and time consuming plus we are no longer refunded by PayPal the fee associated with the amount we refund to you so generally we only refund amounts over $0.75. The balance will go into your store credit. We encourage use of the credit card ordering as it does simplify the issue.
