Unique handcrafted wood gifts that tell a story



Hello and welcome to Expressions in Wood.  We carry a wonderful assortment of individually handcrafted wood pieces and unique handcrafted wood gifts.  Each piece is original and unique.  Whether you are searching for a fabulous graduation gift or a meaningful fathers day gift, or anytime you are looking for a lovely gift with meaning we have the perfect gift for you.


What's New?  Rosette Creations on my handcrafted Rose Engine!

Oh my have I had some fun with this lathe.  I created a rose engine myself and am now making beautiful wood gifts with rosettes.  I can put a little rosette on just about anything.  I've put them on the back of the watches and they turn out really nice.  Here are a few of my rosette bottle top creations.  These are just a few.  You may view all of my bottle toppers for wine, oil and vinegar bottles HERE.


A unique story behind each wood gift we create

Each piece that we create tells a story.  Here you will find wonderfully unique handcrafted wood pieces that are beautiful and great conversation starters!  We search all over for the most wonderfully intricate and beautiful pieces of wood we can find.  Our wood is usually "FOG" wood (found on the ground) or wood that has already been cut down. We use pieces of wood from the beaches of California, Hawaii and Oregon and from our travels around the United States, as well as some elegant wood from specialty wood shops.  Some of our wood has been rescued from a shredder in our home town of Lompoc, other pieces are scavenged and whisked away from wood piles.


The Wood's Story Comes Alive

With each of our wooden gifts you purchase, you will receive a post card that has the type of wood, the history of the particular piece of wood used to create your wood gift as well as some general information about the wood itself.  On the back of the postcard is the interesting story about the artist behind Expressions in Wood, Gerry Davis.


Custom Order Wood Gifts

Custom orders are always welcome.  If there is a specific wood you'd like us to use for a project, just let us know.  Our hand-turned wood gifts are each unique because no two come out exactly alike.  However, if there is a design on our site that you adore and want multiple "copies" let us know.  We can make multiple pieces out of the same wood, just know that each will have its own grain, character and life story.  Just drop us a note and let us know what you are interested in.  Depending on the request, custom orders can take anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks to create.  We always work in a timely, manner but sometimes custom orders take a bit longer than regular orders.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
