Made in Vermont
Even though Wayne's Wood Originals is a relatively new business, I have been creating wood products as gifts to my family for more than 10 years. In the beginning, the hope was to create heirloom quality pieces that could be passed on from one generation to the next. An example of that is the high chair seat that I made for my son and daughter-in-law's children. With hopes that one day the chair would be passed down to the next generation. Many of the items that I create are designed and illustrated in Photoshop. Especially the wood burning (pyrography) design or message to be permanently burned into the wood. I am now fulfilling some of those hopes by creating these kinds of quality wood products for others to enjoy and gift to their families. What better way to show a friend or a loved one how important they are, to have a quality, hand crafted wood product made special just for them and that no else has one exactly like it.
My background includes over 20 years as a Technical Writer, Photography and Illustrating. I have always enjoyed carpentry. Like most things, my interests in carpentry has evolved substantially. My interests in the beginning involved remodeling a house, building an addition or a deck. My ambitions now are geared more toward woodworking. Making unique items as gifts that anyone would proudly like to own or gift to a loved one, friend or business associate.
I enjoy hand selecting each piece of wood for whatever project I am working on in order to create that original look and feel of uniqueness and originality. A lot of items that I make have kind of a rustic look while maintaining a quality product.
Whenever I receive a custom order, I try to get a feel about the person (who the gift is for) or personality, likes or interests. This helps me get a feel about the font selection and design or graphic to be used when pyrography is to be included in the end product.
No two pieces of furniture, cutting board, cribbage board etc. are the same. Every piece of wood used is individually selected, planed, shaped and assembled by hand. Each handcrafted piece is sanded and finished in my workshop.
Reviews from My Happy Customers
Moment my wife and I walked into his trailer full of product, I fell in love with Wayne’s work. Beautiful, unique; he has made wood into artwork. Whether it’s his already made items or something custom for you, there’s no one else I would go to!

Everything Wayne does is beautiful, his prices reasonable and craftsmanship is out of this world!
Wayne does beautiful work on everything he makes. From cutting boards to wine caddy’s and cribbage boards. His art makes beautiful gifts for the holidays, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and house warming gifts. You can have things custom made to make that special person in your life’s gift extra special to them. Thanks again Wayne the custom made cutting board that we had you make is absolutely beautiful.
