Exotic Wood Buttons

Handcrafted Buttons, Exotic Woods

Each button is handcrafted using exotic and domestic woods. All my woods are from sustainable sources.

A few of my favorite woods are Bocote, Cocobolo, Honduran Rosewood, and Purpleheart from Central and South America. From southeast Asia I use Black and White Ebony, Macassar Ebony, and Amboyna Burl. Woods from Africa include Pink Ivory, Gabon Ebony, and Bubinga. And from the USA I use Maple Burl, Walnut, Osage Orange, and my very favorite, Holly. A number of these woods are featured in my Gallery.

I like working with various woods and am always on the lookout for new and unusual examples. I welcome custom orders whether it be sizes, a specific wood, or mixed sets.

My goal is to make buttons that will add a dynamic accent to whatever project you have in mind. Something that no plastic button can accomplish.
