is creating wooden weapons, wands, and whatsits

My name is Nate. I'm a 30-something husband, father, tabletop gamer, comic book reader, video game lover, and nerd in general. In 2016, I decided to add woodworker to that list, and the Splintersmith was born.

Since then, I've expanded my workshop from a single off-brand rotary tool and some popsicle sticks to a handful of inexpensive or donated power tools, and a range of exotic woods. And I've gotten better, too. I'm now creating full-scale replicas and original designs. I've grown from making swords, knives, and axes to include wands, and even the occasional oddity (like a bone charm from Dishonored). Seasoned woodworkers have told me I have a natural talent for this, and I truly feel I've found a thing I love.

The real world prevents me from doing as much of this as I'd like, of course. I've got to maintain the day job, cover the bills, and meet all the other little routine obligations that come with having a life. But that's what the dream here is: one day, have enough income from my art to be able to focus on it full-time, as well as providing cool behind-the-scenes insight and product discounts.

Wood Wizard

Wood Wizards get to take 5% off any orders, as long as they are a Supporter. So it's a continuous effect that doesn't expire. Like an enchantment on a ring that does the same thing as a spell, except the spell runs out.


AND they get a cool weapon drawing of their choice. I'll draw the hell out of anything a Wood Wizard wants. I'll even do fancy shading and stuff. And I'll mail it to you when I'm done.

Lumber Liches will be able to collaborate with me to create a custom wand or weapon design, which they can name, and which will be a featured build during a Splinter Stream.
