Caring for your new product.
This is a materials about your new item, and also instructions.
Here you can find the any special gems used, and origin.
These are instructions I use, and also direct information from the finishing product company. 

About the wood I use.

I never cut down a tree for the sole purpose if creating. A lot of my wood is second chance wood, or from treed that needed to be felled. When we fell a tree its for construction purposes on our property, or fire wood. I use wood that is left after! Second chance wood is also known as reclaimed wood from old construction and piles from around the property. 

Shellac Seal  Charcuterie Board
(Light use, not for use as a cutting board)
Shellac, derived from Indian lac bugs, is a common food-safe film finish. It is highly water-resistant.
If your shellac finish is in good condition and just needs cleaning, use a mild, biodegradable liquid dishwashing soap diluted in warm water. Ring the rag out very well before you wipe the shellac surface. 
Handles are vintage horse shoes found in my old barn. My property was once a working horse ranch, and the shoes were made on site at the time.

 Charcuterie Board Wood Oil
(Light use, not for use as a cutting board)
We recommended you oil your cutting board every month or when dry to the touch.
Use food-grade mineral oil, hemp oil, flaxseed oil to protect your board and keep it looking beautiful! Use food-grade wax if you're wanting a little extra protection in addition to oil. Use kosher salt and halved lemons or vinegar and baking soda to get rid of smells and bacteria. Keep it sanitized and smelling clean!
I use Howard Cutting Board Oil.

Natural Mosaics
"Sun Rays"
The key featured stones and gems: Mahogany Obsidian Needles from Davis Creek California. Natural Agate with crystal growth. Ammonite slice, found deer teeth/jaw, various found stones from Trinidad Lake.  One of the world’s most rare and significant geologic features can be seen and touched at Trinidad Lake State Park. It is commonly known as the K-T Boundary. (The K stood for a German word for the Cretaceious period and the T represented the Tertiary age. Now it’s known as the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary.) 
The key featured stones and gems:
Agate slices, small crystal formations in black rock, Ammonite slice, Byssolite included quartz. 


Wall Skulls
Skulls are naturally sourced from my land. Quartz crystals and byssonlite included quartz are from local Colorado gem hunters. Moss/wood locally sourced off my land. Hook hand forged from our family forge.

Closed Terrarium

This tiny eco system was harvested from my forest. The quartz crystals are local from Colorado , collected by a Colorado Gem Hunter.  The bones are from a Grey Fox that was found on my land deceased. I have a special connection with the Grey Fox on my land, and the one I found,  my son named "Caroline". I now call them all "Caroline", and I enjoy their visits, because they also help keep my buildings clear of rodents. 


  • Keep your terrarium in indirect sunlight. The glass will amplify the sun’s rays, so do not put it in direct sunlight! Moss likes to grow in the shad

    • This is  a self-contained ecosystem. The water cycle will occur in your container and you basically won’t have to ever water it*.

      • *Open the top every so often to freshen it up and smell it (yup, smell it). If it smells earthy and “foresty”, it’s healthy. If it smells, bad, the soil is probably rotting and you should redo the terrarium with new soil.

Candle Holders
Candle holders are designed for use with tea lights or LED tea lights.  
Stones: raw unpolished turquoise.
