Welcome to Ruffcut Woods! My name is Crystal and I am a maker. What started as a hobby, turned into a love for the craft, and has blossomed into a career of creating custom designs for customers. My husband, Mark, and I work well together making useful wooden goods using premium wood.
I was born and raised in Texas and for the past 14 years I have dedicated my professional career to Animal Welfare working in municipal shelters. I clearly love animals, thus the obvious integration into my brand.
As a maker, I use woodworking as a way to express my creativity but dabble in a lot of directions (including this website). I love the history of wood, the imperfections, uniqueness, figure, and being able to transform something that's usable and functional.
My favorite part about making is that each piece takes a lot of on the fly problem solving, and I do enjoy a challenge. I love all things handmade which makes it especially unique.
I am blessed with the opportunity to create full time and I'm here to help make your vision come to life to the best of my ability, so please feel free to reach out and let's chat!
