Alex Pettigrew of Pettigrew Woodworks in North Garden, Virginia crafts a large variety of functional accessories and artistic pieces for office and home from local hardwoods.
He delights in bringing beauty to everyday pieces such as cutting and serving boards, wine racks, clocks, cutlery, jewelry boxes, ink pens and more. Pieces use carefully selected combinations of woods from the wonderful pallet of color and texture available from the Appalachian hardwood forests. No stains are used in Alex’ creations. Items are finished using natural oils and waxes. The goal is to let the wood feel like wood while offering protection consistent with use.
This year Alex will also offer wood and resin hybrid pieces. These combine the beauty of local woods with modern, colorful polymer technology.
While a large variety of pieces will be offered, commissions are welcome.
