Compass Woodworks Co.
- ABOUT US -
My name is Brad Taylor and while I am a middle school science teacher by trade, I have long enjoyed the art of creating things out of wood. So much so, that in 2003 I built my first wooden boat which led to starting a small boat building company called Toller Boatworks where I have designed & built more than thirty boats that call home 14 states across the US.
Having access to some unique woods as well as reclaimed wood from turn of the century barns, homes and furniture I decided to venture into making cutting boards. At first it was just going to be a couple for friends, but the demand was high enough that I started Compass Woodworks Co. The compass logo branded into each board is of my own design and adds a bit of character to each item. Working with wood is a passion to me and I enjoy making unique boards using reclamined wood. All of the boards are coated with my own special blend of mineral oil, organic beeswax, pure carnuba wax and lemon essential oil. Each board comes eloquently wrapped with a kraft paper ribbon and raffia with an information card.. I've always liked the R.W. Emerson quote, "Do not follow where the path may go. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." This quote, along with information for board care and the types of wood are on each information card.
Compass boards will look great in any kitchen and I'm sure you can find one to match. If there is a particular pattern, size or wood you would like to have in a board, please feel fee to contact me.
