Bill & Grace Wald
Wood - Functional
Hometown: Hardwood, ND
Bill and Grace Wald make cedar-lined oak heritage wooden trunks, jewelry boxes and jewelry armoires. Bill does the woodworking and Grace adds the velvet linings on the jewelry boxes and armoires. Bill likes to say the woodwork is the cake and the velvet lining is the icing. Can’t have one without the other!
Nowadays, they really concentrate on heritage-style oak trunks and jewelry armoires. People place orders during Sugarloaf Crafts Festivals (and other shows) and the Wald’s ship the finished product anywhere in the United States.
The jewelry armoires are their most in demand item. The lingerie drawers at the bottom are cedar-lined and the upper nine drawers are custom made with personalized stain colors and choice of velvet linings.
Their oak trunks are also lined with cedar to protect the contents from moth and mildew. People often position them at the foot of their bed where they serve as a temporary seat as well as storage. These fine handcrafted trunks and armoires will be family keepsakes for future generations.
Stop by their booth at an upcoming Sugarloaf Crafts Festival and test them for yourself!
