As a leading provider of early American folk art, I take great pride in offering the best custom made, one of a kind, product. I am dedicated to serving the needs of my customers by providing them with periodic photo updates of their project as it goes through the shop. I have been creating folk art for the last 15 years. My work has included: Quarterboards, Carved Whales, Bellamy Eagles, Whirligigs, Tavern Signs, and much, much more. The core of the business is centered on preserving the art of wooden ship model building. We offer custom builds as well as ship model restoration services.

"The term DANDYFUNK,"

comes from the days of the windjammers.  It was the meal often served on a Friday, which was composed of all the leftovers of the week.  Pickles, crushed ship's biscuits, fats, jam or molasses were all mixed together.  Often it was quite good."
