handmade and unique wooden cutting boards and cheese slicers.
Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Tim Fitzgerald, born and raised here in Augusta. I make wooden cutting boards.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
We start with bare wood (much of it recycled from something else), turn and glue each strip of wood together, and let the grain lead me to a pattern. That’s what makes all board unique.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
All the different types of woods work differently together and it’s interesting to see how every project will turn out.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I can’t help but to look around a room and guess at what different types of wood are in it.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
The diversity of things to do. Shopping, art, outdoor activities, entertainment, and the food!
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
Intricate pattern with wood for a one-of-a-kind project.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Don’t get discouraged. Not every show/event will be great and not every customer is your customer. But if you believe in your product and yourself, the sales will come.
