In my day job, I am a cognitive neuroscientist. Visit my lab website to read about my science. I also love woodturning. I specialize in strange renditions of common objects like bowls, spindles, and lamps. If you want a magic wand, I can create that. If you are a marine biologist who specializes in sharks, I can build a bowl for you with sharks in an epoxy inlaid rim. If you lean more traditional in your woodturning preferences, I can create a conventional bowl or lamp for you.
I hand craft all pieces from scratch on a Laguna midi lathe in my basement dungeon. Visit my online marketplace by clicking on some of the samples below. Since all items are made to order, I have very little inventory on hand. I’ll build your piece and ship it to you as quickly as I can.
"I could not be happier with my custom bowls from Reilly’s Strange Woodworks. Jamie was available to help me with every step along the way from selecting the wood to envisioning the final products. Jamie approaches new and challenging projects with enthusiasm. It is clear that he truly enjoys his craft. Jamie’s work is extremely creative—accentuating the most uniquely beautiful elements of each piece of wood. If you are looking for fantastic custom woodworking done by a smart, friendly, and funny artist, then you’ve come to the right place!" ~ Dr. Rebecca A.
“Hands down the best lamp I have ever bought from an online store… Illuminating!” ~Dr. Jonathan P.
