Welcome to Rockin’ Ray’s

What started as a hobby making rockers for family and friends has evolved into an expression of art using wood as my medium.

Since my retirement I have found myself with more time on my hands. On the average of 6 times per year I have donated custom pet portraits to Humane Societies and Rescues to be used as fund raisers for their efforts. It is rewarding to be able to help animals in this small way.

As you will see in my gallery of Art, Pet Portraits and Cigar Box Guitars the subjects and my implementation of each has grown significantly. From Fretwork to Segmentation to Intarsia the use of wood varies with each subject.

If you are interested in a one of a kind, unique custom art piece just pick the subject and let me know.

Pet Portraits, people portraits, scenic, whimsical, or signage I am sure you will be happy with the results.

If you are musically inclined or would just like a piece of playable musical folkart check out my Cigar Box Guitars.

If you have a child in your life (or one on the way) these custom-made, hand-crafted rockers make perfect and personalized gifts for birthdays, holidays and baby showers. Just send a photo of a child’s favorite pet, animal or vehicle, and I’ll make it rock!
