Artistic Woodwork is a showcase for wood crafts made by artisan, Wayne Heard. His love of woodworking is apparent in the fine quality of his hand-turned wooden pens; his unique, collectable wooden kaleidoscopes; and the attention to detail that is obvious in the vintage collectible wooden trucks that adorn shelves of collectors all over the country. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a woodwork enthusiast, a special corporate gift, or buying a decorative piece of children’s furniture destined to become a family heirloom, you’ll be impressed by the fine handcrafted wood products created by this master craftsman.
Wayne Heard is a serious woodworker and craftsman who takes great pride in creating heirloom quality gifts to last through many generations.
He’s especially proud of his hand-crafted kaleidoscopes, the making of which is a dying art in America. Fewer than 100 craftsmen today have the ability to create these objects of wonder that have fascinated children and adults alike for generations.
Hand-turned pens and collectable vintage truck reproductions are also among his favorite specialities. He is also currently working on additional items to be sold from this site in the future.
Wayne is available for custom woodworking projects. If you have a specific request and would like to discuss the possibilities, please email with your interests and provide contact information. Wayne will contact you and discuss your request.
