About Us

I have been intrigued with woodworking since boyhood.  I always had the sense growing up that my father was a master craftsman.  He had learned the age old craft in the wood shop and ignited a fire in my own heart.  This all lay dormant until I became engaged to a young lady I had fallen in love with. Somehow, my newfound love rekindled the old flame of woodworking.  With the small collection of tools in my father’s old barn, I set to work making my wife-to-be an engagement gift – an oak porch swing.  The porch swing has since worn and deteriorated with age, by my love for the craft has not subsided.

Through the years I have built many custom furniture pieces for friends and our own home.  I started Chosen Stones with a two-fold desire, to build functional handcrafted items and to pass along valuable skills to my children.  Along with building heirloom quality items, I have a purpose to build character and pass on the craft of woodworking to my children.  We take great satisfaction knowing that each board we create will bring many years of useful service.  We each take great satisfaction in creating a great product. We strive for excellence in workmanship in everything we build.

This is the second cutting board I've purchased from Wayne. My husband loves his so much I bought this one as a gift for my sister. Both times I was trying to make a gift deadline and Wayne was able to build and ship the custom cutting boards in time. I highly recommend!

Fabulous communication and great willingness to do a custom piece. The gorgeous huge cutting board with legs arrived so quickly - especially for a custom piece. I am beyond thrilled with the board!! Everyone who has come to my home has raved about it! So happy to have found this artist and have one of his beautiful pieces!!!! Thank you Wayne!!!
