Cooperman Child's Drum

These drums are made by Cooperman and are handcrafted of wood with cotton rope, leather tabs and real calfskin heads and snares. A very fine small-scale version of the ones carried by the Williamsburg Fife and Drum Corps. It's the same drum found in Williamsburg's Greenhow and Tarpley stores at Colonial Williamsburg. Comes with the sticks as well. Mint condition, never played.

Measures 10" diameter and 12" tall. Sticks are 11" long.

 Williamsburg sells these for $280.

Only have one.





Box of Scraps

This is a box packed tight with various sizes of scrap wood suitable for knife handles, starter blocks, small turnings and any other small project where you might need nice wood. Each box is 11"x8"x5" and contains assorted pieces of curly maple, walnut, cherry and/or beech. These are left over from gun stocks and I'm making more every week so there is plenty to go around. I'm tired of my wife using all of the good stuff as kindling for the fireplace.

$15 each

In the comment section of the check out form let me know what you plan to make so I can send appropriate sized scraps.

Leather Bound Journal

These are very nice books for the money. They would be great for sales ledgers or a diary.

 The Celtic Knot and Griffin ones measure 5" by 9" and are 1" thick. The covers are 3-4 oz (3/32") leather deeply embossed and dyed brown.

There are 12 pages to a section and there are 5 sections all stitched to the leather cover with heavy cord. That gives you 240 pages for entries.

The Rolled journal has 48 pages and measures 5" by 7". Good coat pocket size. No embossing and lighter weight leather to roll easily.

The paper used in these is a nice period type of laid paper. It is heavy weight with a slightly coarse texture. They have a leather string attached to the cover that wraps around to bind the book closed.  

I am discontinuing these.
