Meet the Maker

 Meet the Maker, Sidney Spencer, of Spencer’s Custom Wood in Austin, Texas. 















Sidney is a military veteran and woodworker, who creates butcher blocks, cutting boards, charcuterie boards and cheese slicers. His handmade pieces are made using a variety of wood types. 

With no formal training, I tackled my first wood project as a means to an end. My daughter needed a shoe rack, and the prefabricated pieces he found seemed poorly assembled out of cheap materials. A passion for woodworking was sparked through the creation process of my first project.

As a true self-taught artist, I continuously hone my craft, modifying my processes, and improving my techniques. It truly inspiring to starting with a raw wood piece, carving it by hand, then ultimately turning it into something sustainable, functional and representative of home.

Each piece is handmade and created to be something beautiful for your home that will bring joy and traditions for generations.

Shop veteran owned, American-made, hand-crafted home goods. A proud partner of GO TEXAN!
