I am a life-long woodworker with a love for making carved objects with a Celtic theme or motif. I have completed a number of dedication plaques and signs for churches and public buildings. I’ve also built quite a few furniture pieces (beds, tables and bookcases) and other household items, such as spoons and jewelry boxes.

    Jim, I reviewed your portfolio, representative example of completed projects, and I am impressed at your skill and the quality of your work. Celtic interlace design is a strong and beautiful expression of the Celtic spirit. It is a joy to encounter, and you do it justice. It is clear that you derive great satisfaction from this form of artistic expression, and of course with a surname like McLaughlin, that ideom takes on a special meaning. Thank you for giving me your business card and for leading me to this your website. Rick Arms.

      Thanks for your kind words. I love the Celtic knot work designs that the monks developed over a thousand years ago. I especially like doing work for Catholic churches. I am currently hoping to do one or two more things for St. Bridgit of Kildare church in Dublin, Ohio, one a plaque with “cead mile failte” (100,000 welcomes in Irish, and a Celtic cross. Unfortunately with the virus thing going on, decisions are being put on hold at the church’s end.

      I do various wooden items on a commission basis, mainly for friends and family. So if there is something that my skills might come into play for you, let me know

      Regards, Jim
