Our History- Handcrafted Wood & Pewter Creations

Ken Rist, our founder, has been a woodworker/furniture maker for over 35 years. During 2006 he focused on woodturning and during the same year while on a family vacation he visited a pewtersmith shop and fell in love with the pewter process.  Through some formal training and trial and error he has mastered the craft of pewtersmithing.

Today we combine modern technology (such as AutoCAD to design our creations and laser engraving to customize some of our products) and traditional pewter spinning and casting along with traditional woodworking skills to incorporate pewter, wood, acrylic, stainless steel and other materials to create unique, handcrafted creations. We make heirloom quality Chess Sets, Burial Urns, Jewelry Boxes, Flower Vases, BarwareOffice Accessories, and Home Decor that you will be able to enjoy for a lifetime.
