What started as a love for wood-working — a desire to give nice things to family — turned into Papa K Design. Once retired (and after recovering from cancer), I started using my woodworking skills for fun. I love going to wood shops and mills to buy their left-over exotic and domestic woods to then find a new life for them. I blend and mix the wood pieces together to create original, simplified, and sturdy handmade products. The hope is that others will enjoy and love how these treasures revitalize their home environment.

My interest in wood-turning began in 2011 after retiring from the IT field. A friend showed me how to turn a pen, and that was all I needed to start my new adventure. Since initiating Jerry’s Nature Design with a few items, I now have over 50 items in my inventory. As of April 2017, I had created 9,395 hand-turned items. Many of my customers come back time and again to purchase items for themselves or  as gifts for others. Going to work is a pleasure because I look forward to seeing the beauty of the wood come out of each piece I start with.

I enjoy woodworking and have been doing it for more than 10 years. I would like to thank my customers for their support.  I couldn’t do it without them. I want to do this for the rest of my life and there is nothing better than doing what you love. I wish for everyone to do something that they love, like I do.


Artists: Peter Smith and Bob Miller
Business: Pleasant Lake Hardwoods
Products: We use local, native hardwood, self-harvested from our own woodlot to create a variety of products, ranging from rustic “Leopold” garden benches to cutting boards to cutting boards and children’s wooden puzzles. We use “live edge” boards in a good portion of our work, which often inspires its use.

Both of us have been lifelong, wood-working “hobbyists.” Once retired, we chose to turn our work in the woods into more serious woodworking. We are both retired educators.

I’ve been working on my art for about three years and find that it fulfills my life’s purpose in many ways. I enjoy the shared experience with customers who connect with my art at the market. Custom orders are welcome.
