Providing Handcrafted Reclaimed Wood Products
At Elegant Wood Turnings in Eagle Grove, IA, we specialize in transforming timber into classy items. The goods we offer are handmade using a wood lathe.
Most of the wood we use or sell are from tree surgeons, trimmers, or plantations. Whether it is from a domestic or exotic tree, nothing is taken without considering the environmental impact.
About Our Company
We started our business in May of 1991, in a little, old steel building that only gave us a small work area of about 10 square feet. In 2000, we moved to another building that was about 350 square feet. Then in November of 2008, we took the plunge to pack up and move to Eagle Grove, IA where our shop is now roughly 576 square feet. It's still small, has no heat, but it is workable.
Then to Now
Originally, Elegant Wood Turnings was named Woodnymphs, but due to our ignorance (or maybe arrogance), we found the name to be unsettling to some of the people we were trying to serve.
Woodnymphs actually has two common meanings. As it is written, woodnymphs correlate to mythical times, meaning Goddess of the Woods. The other term, spelled wood nymphs, is actually a little biting insect. Neither of the two worked for us, so we needed a change.
We have made it our mission to give you absolutely greatest value, highest quality, and most unique handmade wood products possible. If we wouldn't own it, we absolutely won't sell it to you. We ask that you follow our instructions if a product doesn't meet your standards, and we do appreciate any feedback you send us as our quality standards are second to none, and your feedback helps us to maintain our standards.
