Donald J. Fuss Fine Woodworking

Wood Designer
Forest, VA

“Sometimes you just can’t tell what beauty is hiding under the bark of a piece of wood, and uncovering that is half of the excitement.”

Don is a wood worker with a simple goal: to make men all the world over look a little more dapper. And a little more rustic, too. His means of accomplishing this goal are pretty simple too — his handmade, wood cufflinks and tie clips. They're made from oak whiskey barrels making it a fine accessory for the discerning gentleman. Don doesn’t usually have a specific plan in mind when looking at a piece of wood - he works around its natural beauty and the piece follows suit. It's that flexibility and creativity that he thinks gives his pieces an edge, and we're inclined to agree.
