you are why we do what we do

How you helped Bog and Brass become a reality

We are thrilled that everyone who uses our pens and razors, knows they are getting an authentic Bog and Brass instrument with a piece of Irish history.

I always had a fascination with wood when I was young, but it wasn’t until I started collecting drift wood on walks along the shore of my local town and creating random things from what i found that my passion grew.

This lead me to look more into woodworking, and i decided on trying wood-turning after seeing a few videos on youtube. After a lot of reading and watching videos online i learned the basics and used this to practice until i felt comfortable with what i was doing.

Every day is a learning experience and I love trying new ideas and techniques. So here i am, still learning and loving creating. I create all the pieces in my shop here and on Etsy in my little workshop which grows by the day and i love making new things, especially custom orders.

Nothing makes me happier than when a customer is overjoyed with their one of a kind item.
