Wild Grace Workshop specializes in custom products.  The majority of our orders are custom as we love to help our patrons take their vision, from concept to reality. Below are a few examples of some of our custom pieces.  If there is something that can be made out of wood or leather that you are interested in, from furniture to keychains, we would love to collaborate with you. 


Sherry from Maryland 

July 2014

This custom spanish cedar frame was designed to hold large print as a birthday present for her husband. 

"There are not enough superlatives to describe the quality of the workmanship. You are incredible.  Only wish my photo could stand up to your skill. Thank you for your help in making this a special gift for my husband." 



August 2014

Made from wormy chestnut, a nearly extinct wood that is now illegal to harvest. This custom box came from wood reclaimed from a distillery in Burgin Kentucky which had just been torn down.  

The box was made to hold, protect, and display, a pre-prohibition era bottle of bourbon, which had come from the exact distillery whose wood was used to create this box. 

This was also a birthday present for a family member, and bourbon lover, from a couple here in Kentucky. 


Wes from Kentucky

May 2015

This messenger bag was a unique and fun collaboration. Wes photographed the entire making of for this bag and was a part of the entire process.  He chose his own piece of leather, the color, designed the bag, and was with John for nearly every stitch.  

Wes posted on his Instagram " I am so thankful for the opportunity to capture the craft and amazing products of @wildgraceworkshop.  I encourage everyone to talk to @wildgraceworkshop about creating a custom messenger bag, camera bag, or even a wallet.  The products will be as unique and as long lasting as the experience of working with them." 

Wes and his wife are photographers, their work can be seen at NinaAndWes.com

January 2015

This shadow box frame was created for a local author and friend to celebrate and honor the publication of his first book.  

The red padauk chosen sets off the red in the book cover and contrasts nicely with the maple splines.
