Don handcrafts cribbage boards, cedar tree coat racks, "Squigglewood" fastener pins for hair or knitted objects, lots of sawdust, and more of nature's sculptures just slightly enhanced and mostly functional.

Since creating his first handmade home over 30 years ago, Don Hanson has continued to work with nature's creations of wood, plants, and stone. Uniquely cut and cured tree rounds became heirloom cribbage boards for friends who assisted him in some of his efforts. Over five hundred have presently been marketed, individually numbered and initialed with even the playing pegs being made from mostly local hardwoods.
