red onion woodworks

I just wanted to pop in and announce that I’ll be at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco at Fort Mason this weekend from 11-6 both Saturday and Sunday with a whole lot of freshly finished Red Onion Woodworks cutting and serving boards. I’d love to see and chat with any of my Bay […]


It’s been a while since I updated you on the state of my “real” job as the sole owner, designer, and maker behind the small but mighty Red Onion Woodworks, so I wanted to take a minute to share are a few things coming up that I’m super excited about. First and foremost, I am […]


I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, but I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea. I’m still not sure, but since I have a tendency to sometimes overshare, I’m going for it. I’ll be pulling back the curtain a little bit on my business Red Onion Woodworks. If you only […]


Remember that big batch of new lumber I got a couple weeks ago? Well, the first few cutting and serving boards made from that material are finished and in my Etsy shop. If you sort shop inventory by “most recent”, you can find these boards (with the exception of a few black walnut ones) at […]

We’re heading out on Wednesday morning to meet up with my mom’s family in Northern California for our annual five-day Thanksgiving extravaganza. It’s going to be pretty great.   Black Friday is something I’m […]


Summer is a busy time in general, but lately, I’ve been working hard, finishing off quite a few new cutting and serving boards for my Etsy shop Red Onion Woodworks. I recently went over to my wood supplier‘s place and picked out a large pile of lumber for my next batch of boards. Hopefully that […]


After a nice long winter/spring break, I am SO back in action making new cutting boards and serving trays for my Etsy shop, Red Onion Woodworks. I have to admit that I was pretty burned out after the awesome but exhausting holiday rush as a result of my feature in Sunset Magazine. It was really […]

                  So vacation was great, but this week has been a heavy dose of reality. I mentioned in an earlier post that a cutting board from my Etsy shop was featured in the December issue of Sunset Magazine (see here), and the response has been huge. On […]
