Alex Pettigrew of Pettigrew Woodworks in North Garden, crafts a large variety of accessories for office and home from local hardwoods.

He delights in bringing beauty to everyday functional pieces such as cutting and serving boards, wine racks, clocks, cutlery, jewelry boxes, ink pens and more. Pieces use a carefully selected combination of contrasting 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. Left-overs from larger pieces are used to create smaller objects in an effort to let as little as possible go to waste.

While a large variety of pieces will be offered, commissions are welcome.
