At Jim James Creations We Take Pride In Creating Handcrafted Award Winning Products.
Our products are custom made to suit the needs of the client. We offer one of a kind pieces handcrafted with various types of wood specifically harvested in Northeast Oklahoma. We are located within one of the most diverse regions when it comes to our availability to distinctive wood species. .
At Jim James Creations we control the entire process of transforming a rugged ol' tree into a beautiful piece of furniture or a forever cherished heirloom. Our wood is harvested mostly through urban environments in which we would recover the tree from landfills, the ol' wood pile and even local residential properties. Our business is truly a "one stop shop" in which we start with a tree and go thru an integrated process to create the finished product all in the same shop.
You never know what is on the inside of that tree that has fallen until you open it up. We find that all the little (or big) burls, knots and bug driven holes (character) found in any given piece of wood are not defects but some of the many diverse wonders within nature.
Jim turns pieces ranging in size from small nut kernels to large platters, His real love though is
functional work which he is now concentrating on more and more. His range of handcrafted
wooden forms is constantly evolving. The beauty of each individual piece often inspires Jim to produce new shapes and designs that have become family heirlooms created from the clients own tree.
Jim James Creations is a part of many well known consortiums including The Northeast Oklahoma Woodturners Association and The American Woodturners Association you can find our work displayed in galleries, art shows and shops across the US.

Meet the Architect
After serving in the military and graduating Amarillo College, Jim married his wife Cyndi. Jim and Cyndi then devoted their lives to our Lord Jesus Christ and not long after the couple took up ministry. One thing lead to another and the husband and wife team not only managed the family farm, but also became engaged in the horse racing business as well as becoming successful business owners as Radiological Imaging Specialist
Jim has always been fascinated with wood and woodturning however prior to his retirement in 2011, Jim started creating wood products and attending woodworking classes. Jim will jokingly proclaim his wife Cyndi forced him to find a hobby to keep him out of the house and "out of her hair". Besides creating bowls and many other wood elements, Jim enjoys gardening, fixing things, attending Church, spending time with his grandchildren and pulling pranks on his great-grandchildren.
Jim enjoys being able to display one of the many wonders that GOD has given us. Jim takes pride in being able to share God's gift with others to see the natural beauty he has left for us.
