About us

Hi, and thanks for checking out our website. My name is Jim Schuette and I operate Crosscut Design Studio in historic Waynesville Ohio. Our desire is to handcraft distinctive wooden products that you will enjoy using in your home or love to give unique gifts for that special occasion. Our woodworking pieces are individually handcrafted with exceptional quality and are not manufactured in a factory. We use domestic hardwoods like Maple, Walnut, or Cherry and exotic hardwoods like Purpleheart, Yellowheart, Sapele, Lacewood, Wenge, Paduck, Jatoba along with select softwoods like Pine, Spruce and Fir to make our products.

I have several years of woodworking experience in home construction and owning and operating a manufacturing facility specializing in premium quality custom cabinetry, built-ins, mantles, and various types of millwork for the discriminating residential and commercial markets. I have always had a passion for woodworking and have spent many hours researching and learning about wood the past 20 years. I am using those skills I have honed over the years to create products that make your home more enjoyable.

Crosscut Design Studio is dedicated to producing high-quality products for your home that will bring people together. With every product we make, my guarantee is that the natural beauty of the wood will be showcased for your enjoyment. Products that will be used in food preparation and serving will always be free of stains or dyes and will have a food-safe mineral oil and beeswax finish.

Thank you for visiting our website and please feel free to contact me personally with any questions via jim@crosscutds.com

We hope you find something you like.
