"We had the pleasure of working with Karl when my husband’s family’s fourth generation cuckoo clock from The Black Forest needed a good cleaning and tune-up.  Karl’s work was meticulous and thorough and the clock is singing his praises – on the hour.   He has our highest recommendation."

--Sue and Emery


"Karl Fox is as dependable and timely as his clocks.  I love knowing someone takes such care and precision with the work he does...Everything he does is a work of love."

--Bobbie and Randy Blass


"Karl, we couldn't be more pleased with the work done on the antique child's rocker. It's been in the family for several generations and you have returned it to the condition it was in when it was my grandfathers.  The hand turned spindles, repairs to the split seat and the match of the finish all made for a great restoration."

--Mike & Debbie Krug


  "We have several pieces from 'The Wood Artisan', Karl, and we are always  truly impressed with the quality of his work.  He loves what he does and the things he creates show his skill, caring and ability.  We are  never disappointed in anything he makes for us.
     He made a beautiful dark wood jewelry box for us which looks and fits perfectly on our dresser.  It has different size lined drawers which are great for a variety of  jewelry and it is tall so it doesn't take up a lot of space.  The inside is finished as nice as the outside.
     He also made the perfect size and style small table for an art piece we have.  It was made to fit the art object and the workmanship was beyond anything we had seen in the stores.  He has quite a talent for visualizing and producing what would work well.
     We needed a smaller version of a grandfather clock, one that could be set on a mantel or shelf.  He came up with the perfect clock.  Again, he impressed us with his outstanding workmanship.  He is truly an 'artisan'.  He loves the work he does and it certainly shows in all of his work."
