About Us

When I returned home from Afghanistan in 2009 I decided to take up woodworking as a hobby. I began making small cutting boards, turning wooden pens on the lathe, and serving trays. At first these were given as gifts to our friends and family. Around 2011 I was told that I should offer my items for sale by a close friend and Mote Designs Company was born. Since then my wife Tammy and I have teamed up and now offer painted, engraved and canvas printed signs, laser engraving, butcher block cutting boards, cribbage boards with epoxy resin, and much more.

 All of our indigenous wood is hand selected right here in the State of Maine at Kings Mountain in Orrington Maine. Our exotic woods are purchased from Rare Woods USA in Mexico Maine. Our core values are to offer a superior product at a reasonable price and to provide excellent customer service. Tammy and I thoroughly enjoy the work we do and look forward to providing our customers with products that can last a lifetime and be handed down to future generations.
