About Us

Here is a little bit about us. The year is 2014. Robert and Sarah Dedinsky just celebrated one year of marriage and purchased their first home. Everything is going great until they realize that home ownership doesn’t come with a landlord. Robert knows very little about anything so he did the only thing he knew to do. He went to YouTube to find a video on how to *insert home repair here.* Once he watched whatever that video was, he came across a video about how to build a bench that was almost a half hour long. Ironically, it was a video by Keith Rucker, who is primarily a metal guy.

Robert watched that video and thought he could build something similar. (Ironically, Robert has not built a bench to this day!) One video led to the next, led to the next, led to the… You get the point. He watched a lot of content creators on YouTube and decided that he wanted to start collecting tools. For Christmas, birthdays, and other events, he asked relatives for gift cards and money so he could go buy tools. Over the course of a few years, he was able to outfit his shop with a number of tools.

More about us: Fast forward to 2016. Robert was using the scroll saw to create small ornaments during Christmas time and other small items for the season. He decided that he wanted to make a small business out of his hobby, so in 2017, he launched the Cross Cut Creations business. As time went on and Robert’s interests and passions evolved. When he got his first lathe, he instantly found a new favorite tool in the shop. Robert started to turn small items, Christmas ornaments,  a baseball bat out of pallet wood, and also started to make pens, where his passion lies today. He even decided to start a YouTube channel. That can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC54fkSR_LBTnG69wcy8G3Gg

Robert really enjoys making pens and other items that are turned on the lathe. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pen, bowl, or other turned item, but Robert almost exclusively turns on the lathe and creates pen blanks out of resin and other materials. Those products can be found in his shop on this website here: https://cross-cut-creations.com/

Even more about us: Sarah enjoys making earrings, pen blanks, and other things out of polymer clay. She works with her clay, forms it into the shapes she wants, then bakes them in an oven to make sure they are ready to be used. Sarah finds working with polymer clay to be a good stress relief and creative outlet. A number of her creations are inspired by whatever the current season happens to be.
