Every piece is made one at a time by Charles Tedder. The craftsmanship is more important than the cost..... what you buy today reflects your appreciation of quality and value for a life time.
"I am easily satisfied by the very best."
No matter if you are buying an $800.00 dollar Humidor or a $29.00 dollar Keepsake Box, all are built to the same Quality Standards. I am an Antique Dealer. I buy, repair and sale High-end Antiques. I am a "one man shop", and as such, can control the Quality of every thing that comes out of my shop. About fifteen years ago I made my first Humidor for a friend. He wound up with four. By word of mouth I was soon covered up with orders. I started doing High-end Arts/Crafts show as a way to market my product. I added Jewelry Chest and various other types of boxes, to include Men's Valets and Keepsake boxes of all sizes and types of Exotic wood(S). I do about ten shows a year. About 75% of my work is custom orders.
Every thing I make gets a "Hand Rubbed Oil Finish". Between 5 to 8 coats. This is a blend of five oils that provides the best finish possible. The finish was developed for the marine environment. The base is polyurethane. This is the same finish I use on my fine Antiques. I developed the finish while I was Quality Assurance Manager with Hatteras Yachts. That was between 1965 to 1988.
