I started my career in wood working as a young man when I worked as a helper for a local residential construction company. Years later I started my own business building quality homes. Eventually I started teaching carpentry and cabinetry making at a local high school where I was given the incredible opportunity to share my love for woodcraft with students for twenty five years. My wife and I started Tall Oak Trading Company in 2015 and this newest venture has allowed us to share our experience, passion and craftsmanship with customers all over the country. All of our products are crafted with quality hardwood and are built to be used, enjoyed and handed down to the next generation.
I am a beekeeper, organic gardener and maker of artisan soaps, natural perfumes and colognes, and skin-loving body products. I maintain a small apiary and a large garden where I grow many of the flowers and herbs used in my products. Most of my products contain my own organic beeswax, to which I add plant-based oils and butters, botanicals, natural clays and 100% pure essential oils. All of my products are created in my workshop in small batches with absolute attention to quality and purity. I use eco-friendly packaging that can be reused, recycled or composted. I am grateful to be able to share with my customers my passion for creating kinder, gentler products that look and smell the way nature intended them to.
We promise to treat each product as though it were being placed in our own home and used by our own loved ones. Only the best quality materials, and the most perfect of finished products will be available for sale.
