Making our own home decor turned into a business!
We could never find Christmas and Halloween decor the way we like it, so we decided to start making our own! We got plenty of complements from friends and family, many said we could sell some of these items. So, the Sawmill Shop was born! We decided to make items to order as many customers like customizing their items.
Everything is hand made in small batches. We prefer designs that favor a more retro or rustic look. Our cutouts are mainly made of two materials, MDF or plywood. We use MDF for more complicated patterns as it tends not to come apart, and cuts easier. MDF is a great material as it rarely needs sanding and is easily painted. The only downside is that it is not water resistant, and cannot be used outside unless thoroughly sealed. We use plywood for larger items as it is more cost effective, and more weatherproof as larger items are more likely to be used outside.
We are always open to new ideas and projects. If you want something, just ask! We can probably find a way to make it!
