A New Boston resident offers locally made engraved wooden items that are hand crafted then sold online.
Gordon Stump owns Huron Custom Carvings, a business that specializes in solid American black walnut signs, plaques and gifts.
“Our walnut is from reclaimed downed trees,” Stump said. “The logs are locally milled and dried in a kiln using the sawdust from the sawmill for heat. Walnut is the premier American hardwood perfect for that special person or event.”
In addition to the carving business, Stump also owns Heritage Music Products, which ships wooden music products far and wide.
“Heritage Music Products is best known for solid walnut musical instrument stands sold on Amazon,” Stump said.
Stump said that having relationships with local sawmills allows him to offer hardwoods used for both businesses at softwood prices.
“Huron Custom Carving is situated to take advantage of our dedicated logo CNC router to offer small/medium custom signage and plaques,” he said.
Former president of the Detroit Federation of Musicians Local 5, Stump spent 30 years as the first trumpet player at the Fisher, Masonic, Birmingham and former Pine Knob Theaters.
While all work is guaranteed by Stump, “Wood is wood so tight knots, planer breakout and saw marks can occur,” he said.
Both woodworking ventures do business as Heritage Woodworking of New Boston, Michigan.
