Ornaments

I design and create all of our Knot Rods Ornaments using only the natural colors of the woods I choose - no stains, paints or dyes. We currently have six Ornament types to offier, four Classic Car Ornaments and our Longboard and Shortboard Surfboard Ornaments.

The Classic Car Ornaments are created by combining specifically handshaped pieces of contrasting colors of Hardwoods. Each original design depicts the rear view of a particular car. Currently we hve four Car Ornaments which aremodeled after a Forties Woodie, a 1946-48 Chrysler Town & Country or Ford Sportsman, a Shoebox Woodie and a Thirties Pickup truck. Our Classic Car Ornaments Measure approximately 2-3/4" by 2-3/4".

Our Surfboard ornaments are created by combining multiple layers of contrasting colored hardwoods. After each board is cut out and the shape perfected, a skeg is installed, trimmed, and hand-shaped with a file and sandpaper. No two skegs are exactly the same. Surfboards are approximately 1/16th scale and measure 1-3/8" wide by 1/4" thick. The Longboards are 7" long and the Shortboards are 5" long.

All of our Ornaments are sealed with a clear satin finish, then fit with a string loop tied through a small hole. They look great hanging from a Christmas tree branch or rear-view mirror, and beautiful on a desk or wall display.
