"Absolutely beautiful handmade wooden items, from yarn bowls and spindles to salad bowls and kitchen utensils! And, all the woods used are locally sourced!"
Lisa, Itty Bitty Knitty Shop, Paducah, Kentucky

"I used 4 Rivers Woodworx's flat spatula and it works awesomely! It grabs all the food from the corners of the pan. The quality of these handmade products are top-notch, and beyond the competition with pricing that is too modest. I have been using many products from 4 Rivers Woodworx and cannot say enough about the quality and beauty of the craftmanship of handturned work, made 100% in Kentucky, from almost all timber exclusively sourced in the Kentucky region."

"I received 2 beautifully handmade seam rippers! The wood handles will age nicely with use.  The large one has an angled tip that is a great addition and a big help when pressing those seams (especially when the fabric is HOT)! Thank you!!!"
Amy, Canoga Park, California

"I received 12 seam rippers from 4 Rivers Woodworx here in Australia. I am a quilter/sewer and wanted these exquisite pieces for myself and my friends.  There is nothing like the feel of wood in the hand that I know will only become more lovely with age.  Thank you 4 Rivers Woodworx."
Susan, Bassendean, Wa, Australia

"My office gave pitchers and bowls made by 4 Rivers Woodworx to people preparing to be ordained as United Methodist deacons. The pitcher and bowl constitutes a symbol of the ordained diaconate. These are beautiful and durable keepsakes that the recipients treasure. Each set is unique because of the wood and the finish; yet the fine craftsmanship and detail are common to all."

"We purchased our beautiful ice cream scooper and pizza slicer. I was amazed at the craftsmanship and detail that went into it. This will be something to keep in the family for years to come."
Michelle, Riverside, California

"I received the most amazing butcher block cutting board. The quality of this cutting board is impeccable, it is more than 2 inches thick and it is inlayed with the most beautiful end grain making it virtually indestructible. This cutting board is such a beautiful piece, it is truly a handcrafted work of art; so much so that I was scared to use it when I first got it as I was afraid I may diminish its beauty with wear. However I've now used it several dozen times and it shows absolutely no wear at all even with the rigorous chopping I do. It looks just as beautiful now as it did the first day I received it. I could not be happier with this piece and I hope to receive many more beautiful pieces from 4 Rivers Woodworx to add to my collection."
Naomi, Columbia, Tennessee

"I purchased the most Beautiful Urn, called 'Almost Autumn'" for my Mother ... it's unique and very Special. The time and attention shows in every detail. It was made with Superb Craftsmanship ... the Respect shown to my Mother was Amazing ... Very Special people!"
Jolynn, Paducah, Kentucky

"My wife is thrilled with the yarn bowl with lid that she received today. Beautiful work at a more than fair price and delivered as promised. Thank you for a great, handmade product!"
Tim, Monroe, Michigan

"Vern and Cindy, thank you so much for handcrafting the chalices and patens we used at Exploration! They were beautifully finished and functioned perfectly. The altar not only displayed the love of God and the sacrifice Christ made for us but also the genius and gift of your creative spirit. We were honored to have them. Thank you!"

“I found 4 Rivers Woodworx through Paducah’s Lower Town Music and Arts Festival. I ordered a gift for my sister through their website. The piece arrived promptly after a chatty email exchange with Vern. It’s beautiful!  I know she’ll love it and I’m thrilled to have connected with a talented guy who is so personally invested in his artistry.  I’m looking for an excuse to order something else!”
