About this project



About this project

No matter what kind of (Painting, Drawing, Woodworking, Sculpting, Carving, etc.) art style we create; "Nature is what we have in mind." Expanding our shop with the proper tools would help us create bigger and better things. There are a handful of saws and drills that we are hoping to acquire (Scroll Saw, Band Saw, 12" Extended Miter Saw, Drill Press, and other tools).

These Shark Teeth are made from one of the oldest living things on this Earth.  I have worked with many different kinds of timber but Redwood has to be one of the most gorgeous woods I have ever worked with.  Not only does it display some amazing grain textures but it is rare to come across unless you live on the west coast.  This is how I have incorporated the design to have a mixture of the two coasts. 

Like nature not all things are identical, and this is how I am doing these teeth.  No Shark Tooth will have the exact same design.  Each tooth will have its own look whether its bigger, wider, or shaped differently.  So the tooth you receive will be truly be one of a kind in more ways than one.

Bull Shark Tooth - 5 1/2" x 5"
Bull Shark Tooth - 5 1/2" x 5"
Great White Shark Tooth - 6 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Great White Shark Tooth - 6 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Mako Shark Tooth - 7" x 4 1/2"
Mako Shark Tooth - 7" x 4 1/2"
Tiger Shark Tooth - 6" x 5 1/2"
Tiger Shark Tooth - 6" x 5 1/2"

On the back of each tooth we will have a custom brand burnt into them with a number to authenticate your design.  We will also have these numbers put into our system with your info to always know that without your help we wouldn't be where we are today.  

My name is AJ- my passions are Woodworking, Painting, Sculpting, Drawing, Web Designing, but more importantly being a father. My beautiful Fiancee Mallory and I just had our precious amazing little boy "Banks". I do everything that I do for them.  My world revolves around them and my family. Anyone who knows me and/or has been over to our house has seen that there are only a few things in our house that has not be created by me. My love for the beach truly shows by seeing the work that I create. Growing up around the Outer Banks, NC has helped to put this love I have in an art form I love to express. Family and friends have always asked me if I ever sell my work and I have tried to get a large enough collection to start a shop. I feel that with this I can finally pursue my chance to share my work with others.

 

Risks & Challenges



This year has been full of many obstacles from working a full time job, to working on my side projects, and being a new dad. Finding the time to create all the things I think of can be overwhelming. This will give me the opportunity to make one of my creations my one true priority. I feel that offering a certain amount of teeth that can be created and received before Christmas will be tough but I look forward to the challenge. My goal is to try and finish all orders and have them sent out in time for the Holidays. I want everyone to have the chance to receive one of these amazing shark teeth in time to be a present for someone they love. I have a strong support system at home and know that I can always have help from Mallory and my family if I do find myself in a tight situation. I have already worked out my schedule to know how many teeth I can make in a day and have them from carved, detailed, and finished. This is only one of the many projects that I will be starting here in the new future. This will give me the chance to hit the ground running and help with tools and possibly extra funding to start the next one.
