Woodworker, Jim Crampton has been interested in the arts since a very young age. As he grew older, he decided to study fine art and began painting and drawing before ultimately choosing woodworking over 30 years ago. Crampton combines simplicity and beauty in his turned burl branch creations.
After a terrible ice storm in 1998, Crampton was surrounded by thick ice and fallen trees, which resulted in him finding a wide selection of beautiful, workable cherry burl. Using the pieces he found, Jim was able to create high quality magnetic boxes. These boxes are a somewhat recent addition to our store, and they offer a simple, unique beauty that is unlike anything else we offer.
